EUSSET Summer School: Fourth International Summer School on Computer Supported Cooperative Work – Foundations, Methods and Technologies

Graduate School, Arts at Aarhus University


The CSCW Summer School provides young researchers (PhD or post-doc) with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of CSCW as a research field and community. The interaction among the participants (both teachers and students) will promote the generation of new ideas and their confrontation with the experiences they have acquired in their field research.

The school will release a certificate that can be used to acquire 7.5 ECTS upon the approval of the outcomes of their group work activities. Students are required to have read the course material (15-20 papers) in advance and to complete pre-course assignments which includes preparing a poster presenting their research to be used on the afternoon of the first day.


After the introduction of the acronym CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) in the late 1980’ the themes connected with the understanding of collaborative work practices and the design of artefacts supporting collaboration have become pervasive in many scientific, business and social discourses. The domains in which CSCW can inform sociotechnical design are constantly growing and changing. This asks for a continuous elaboration of the theoretical foundations of the underpinning disciplines through a reflection on the outcomes of the field studies, on the methods applied in the social and technological investigations and on the impact of the technologies on practices they are made part of. The combination of these perspectives should be the patrimony of any researcher who wants to grasp the complex and subtle issues that are involved in the CSCW research area.
