C&T Workshops will run for a half or one full day and will take place on June 26th or June 27th.

Workshops provide a platform to discuss, explore and advance specific research areas of Communities & Technologies with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners. Each workshop should generate ideas that give the C&T community a new, innovative way 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, artifacts in practices, emerging application areas, design innovations, strategy and organizational issues pertaining to communities and technology.

A list of accepted workshops can be found in the Programme section.

While workshop summaries will be integrated into the conference proceedings that will be a volume of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM, organizers can consider converting individual workshop papers into edited books or special issues of journals. Furthermore, there is the option of publishing the workshop submissions (all contributions) as an International Report on Socio-Informatics (IRSI): You may consider including such publications goals in your workshop proposal.

A workshop proposal must be prepared according to ACM recommended templates and should be no more than 4 pages including references. Furthermore each proposal should:

  • include the title of the workshop,
  • list organizers and their backgrounds,
  • provide workshop’s theme, goals and activities,
  • indicate maximum number of participants,
  • provide means of soliciting and selecting participants.

Please send proposals to the Workshop Chairs, using the ACM recommended templates:
Sukeshini A. Grandhi, Eastern Connecticut State University
Lars Rune Christensen, IT-University of Copenhagen

Please note that the ACM templates have changed recently and the ressource link provides you now with an archive of the full catalog of ACM templates. Among them, please use the SigConf proceedings template which is the correct template to use for the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM. You are free to use the text editor toolbar/plugin provided by the ACM, as well as to use the ACM_SigConf sample file provided for your convenience in the “ACM Sample Files” folder. You can contact our proceedings’ chair, Matthieu Tixier (matthieu.tixier [at] if you need any help.

If you have any problems with the templates, please contact ACM’s TeX support team at Aptara (

The proceedings are part of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM.
