CFP: Workshop on The Changing Dynamics of Scientific Collaborations at HICSS (January 4th 2011)

Following on from successful workshops at CHI and CSCW we call for 3- to 4-page position papers on the following topics, especially those with a focus on understanding or supporting changing practices in these areas:

- Collaborative scientific applications concerning data gathering, analysis, sharing, and visualization
- Case studies concerning data gathering, analysis, sharing and visualization
- Socio-technical research on scientific collaborations 
- Research on the scientific software ecosystem 
- Social networks of scientists
- Repurposing social software for science 
- Participatory design and/or rapid prototyping for scientific software 
- Distributed data gathering and analysis 
- Time-critical scientific applications 
- Studies of generational differences in how science is done 
- Cross-functional applications and comparisons of a scientific to a non-scientific field 
- Science and Innovation policy questions on these issues at science funding bodies and beyond.

The workshop will bring together

- researchers who study scientific practices and collaboration 
- designers and software developers deploying new types of collaborative

The goal of the workshop is to produce a white paper to report on the state of the field and to delineate themes and current challenges.

Please email workshop papers to James Howison <jhowison at cs.cmu.edu> by October 1st.
