WORKSHOPS

Tools in Support of Creative Collaboration
Organizers: Piotr Adamczyk, Kevin Hamilton, Michael Twidale, Brian Bailey (UIUC)
Full Details: http://orchid.cs.uiuc.edu/CreativeCollaboration/

Overview
Collaboration that involves a diverse set of perspectives is more likely to generate novel ideas. Creative groups rely on effective communication across disciplinary boundaries while maintaining an atmosphere that preserves distinctive contributions. Given the persistent interest in creating teams of artists, designers, engineers, and scientists, tools that effectively represent practice and support creative engagement can make a significant contribution.

This one-day workshop will focus on the design and evaluation of such tools. The scope will include common issues in creative collaborative practice: (1) Social Aspects of Tools and Tool Use (e.g. should collaborative support tools include a degree of awareness of the social roles present in teams), and (2) Artifacts in Creative Collaboration (e.g. how can tools better embed disciplinary concepts in artifacts or the communication process).

Audience
Our intended audience includes researchers in HCI and CSCW, industry experts in collaborative or social software, designers practiced in art/science collaboration, and artists whose work engages with disciplinary boundaries.

Participation Details
People interested in participating are invited to submit a position paper, 2-4 pages in length. Participant position papers should either (1) situate the participants' interests and background among the themes of the workshop, or (2) report on preliminary research findings or case studies in the design and deployment of creativity support tools aimed at collaborative practice. Additional sample materials are welcome.

Papers should conform to the HCI Archive format:
