Collaborative Appropriation: How Couples, Teams, Groups and Communities Adapt and Adopt Technologies

Call for Submissions!
This will be a one-day workshop taking place in February 2016 in conjunction with the 19th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing in San Francisco, USA. The workshop will take place on the 27th of February.

About the Workshop
Previous workshops and papers have examined how individual users adopt and adapt technologies to meet their own local needs, by “completing design through use.” However, there has been little systematic study of how groups of people engage collaboratively in these activities. This workshop opens a discussion for these under-studied forms of collaborative appropriation, using a broad range of perspectives including empirical data, design explorations, research, and critique.
