Call For Papers

This workshop focusses on challenges of cooperative or collaborative work in emerging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industry 4.0 settings. We will critically reflect how existing CSCW concepts as well as commonly used research methods can be applied to new forms of labor enabled by networked infrastructures, e.g. within manufacturing settings. Workshop activities will invite participants (researchers, members of industry and community organizations) to work together in exploring and discussing new and old challenges of CSCW in this context. Further the workshop’s aim is depicting a CSCW-agenda for research in the context of Industry 4.0 settings, including potential transformations of existing CSCW concepts.

We invite designers, researchers and industry practitioners interested in participating to submit a 2-4 page position papers (The template can be downloaded as RTF, MS Word or Latex). Authors should send submissions to in .pdf format not later than May 14th, 2018. Position papers will be reviewed by the organizers based on relevance to the workshop and the potential for stimulating discussions on the research agenda to be developed during the workshop. For more information contact the organizers.
