We aim to engage even those who can’t attend the in-person workshop itself, but who are doing relevant work, in an online, asynchronous, pre-workshop discussion, during which contributions can help shape the format and discussion of the workshop itself. All participants, online and in-person, are also invited to contribute to the post-workshop article and to submit a paper for inclusion on the workshop website.
All who are interested in participating (online or in-person), should submit a one- to two-thousand-word position statement via EasyChair (1-to 4-page, excluding references, preferably in APA format, written in English, PDF or MS Word) describing their position and work they are doing as this relates to the workshop theme and objectives. Brevity is encouraged! Please DO NOT anonymize. Please also indicate whether you are able to participate in the in-person workshop or only the online discussion.
Those accepted are expected to:
- Provide a "bio slide" (4:3) as a PDF file. The slide should describe your background, your recent/current research as this relates to the workshop theme and (optional) include a recent picture of you.
- Participate (at least 1 hour of time) in an extended online, asynchronous, pre-workshop discussion designed to elicit/elaborate on key issues and areas -- the better to use the limited time of the in-person workshop itself.
- (Optional) Provide a full paper (approx. 10 pages) for inclusion on the workshop website.
Those who plan to attend in-person are also expected to:
- Register for the workshop via ASIS&T. Registration for the full ASIS&T Annual Meeting is optional. Note that workshop registration is higher than for other workshops because it is a full-day workshop.
- Bring a poster-sized print of your "bio slide" with you to the workshop to be displayed on a meeting room wall for all participants to get to know each other. The slides will also be included on the workshop website.
