The GROUP'16 Workshop Organizing Committee is looking for people with
great ideas to organize workshops at the 2016 edition of the conference.
Workshops will take place on November 13, 2016. 

For over 25 years, the Group conferences have brought together
researchers and practitioners who work on the development, introduction,
management, deployment, and analysis of computer-based collaborative
systems. Workshops provide an interactive venue to explore new ideas and
build community around a shared interest. Examples of workshops from the
previous ACM GROUP 2014 can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1R7EVkp.

We welcome proposals for half- or full-day workshops focused on all
topics relevant to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer Supported
Cooperative Work (CSCW), Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL), and
Social-Technical Studies (STS).

We aim to select a diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple
workshops with overlapping themes. Preference will be given to proposals
where activities have been designed to stimulate discussion and
interaction among participants; workshops consisting solely of paper
presentations are discouraged. Organizers of accepted workshops will be
responsible for producing and distributing a Call for Papers describing
the event, soliciting submissions, selecting participants, and
facilitating the event. Please note that workshop organizers are
required to attend the conference and register for the workshop and at
least one day of the conference.

*** Publication***
Accepted workshop proposals will be included in the conference
proceedings and archived in the ACM Digital Library.
