From the 24th until the 30th of August, Alina Krischkowsky and Katja Neureiter attended the International EUSSET Summer School on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)  together with almost 30 students from all around the world. It was constituted by a variety of interesting talks, working groups, and tutorial sessions that encouraged students to actively engage with the lecturers on site. The talks addressed foundations of CSCW, methods that are applied, and current themes that are discussed within the community, as well as future challenges. Within the working groups students discussed open issues or questions they had with respect to a certain topic within the community, e.g., theory development, data analysis and the application of mixed methods, or how to transfer practices into design. During the tutorial sessions PhD students could discuss issues they are facing with respect to their research.
