Workshops

C&T 2021 will host workshops to spark discussion and exchange of experiences among (applied) researchers, practitioners, and professionals working in the field of communities and technologies, as well as non-academic actors – individuals as well as organizations – working with technologies to affect community relations. The workshops provide a platform to discuss, explore, and advance specific research areas of Communities & Technologies. Each workshop should provide a forum to generate new, innovative ways of thinking about the topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research. Topics addressed may include (but are not limited to) theories, methodologies, artefacts in practices, emerging application areas, design innovations, strategy and organizational issues pertaining to the overall theme of the conference.

C&T Workshops will run for a half or one full day and will take place on June 21st and 22nd, 2021.
