We are sorry having to inform you that the ARRC workshop has been cancelled due to the low number of submissions. We will however try to organize the workshop at another conference later this year. Most probably we will target the ECTEL 2011 conference which will take place between September 20 and September 23, 2011 in Palermo, Italy.
We are happy to announce that the following five papers have been accepted as full papers for the ARRC11 workshop:
- Promoting Awareness to Manage Dependencies in Distributed Geo-Collaborative Activities
- Query Construction Through Awareness in Collaborative Information Retrieval Systems
- Enhancing Awareness in Scientific Events through Bibliometric Paper Analysis
- Bringing Reflection About Lifelong Learning Skills to Online Mentor
- Awareness Issues in Distributed Research Communities
The deadline for submitting 2 page abstracts for the workshop has been extended to December 29, 2010. You will be informed about the acceptance of your proposal by December 30, 2010.
We are very happy being able to announce that the workshop “Awareness and Reflection in Research Communities (ARRC)” has been accepted for the CSCW 2011 conference to be held in March 2011 in Hangzhou, China.
Traditionally the concept of awareness is used in the research field of CSCW to re-establish awareness conditions of face-to-face situations with visual cues showing for example, who is online or working on a document. In the field of perception psychology, awareness is the state or ability to focus on certain stimuli of the environment while ignoring others. Here, being aware of something does not necessarily mean to understand it. In marketing, awareness usually relates to the degree consumers knows about a certain product. Generating public awareness is seemed as a task of the media to establish topics the public should know about.
Considering the multitude of views on awareness, the workshop will focus on the question what does awareness mean for technology-enhanced learning and how does it relate to reflection, as one of the key abilities of researchers and knowledge workers.
We are inviting you to join our workshop in the beautiful city of Hangzhou in March 2011 and to discuss issues and solution approaches to awareness and reflection issues. The workshop seeks to attract quality research papers that propose solutions to the issues identified in the Call for Papers. The workshop also seeks papers that comment how the application of awareness-supporting applications impact on real life experiences. It aims to bring together scientists and engineers as well as people engaged in the transaction of knowledge in organizations.
