Collective Intelligence In Organizations (CIorg): Tools and Studies

7 November 2010

 

description

Special Issue of the Journal of CSCW: Call For Papers (2011)

The workshop was the occasion to call for submissions for a special issue of the Journal of CSCW on the CIorg topic. Submissions to this issue are invited, starting from the pool of participants of the workshop at both venues (ACM Group 2010 and ACM CSCW 2010). Please download the call for papers from the link below. Submissions are also being invited via mailing lists in the HCI, CSCW, and Information Sciences.

Dates

  • Submission deadline EXTENDED to 14th February 2011
  • Reviews returned: 25th March 2011
  • Submission deadline for  revised manuscripts: 13th May 2011 

Please read the call for papers (e.g., questions) and in your submission draw implications for CIorg. Submissions should be 6000-8000 words (note that we can be flexible if you have 'slightly more' content in your initial submission). Follow the Springer guidelines for authors, available at http://www.editorialmanager.com/cosu


ACM Group Workshop venue (2010)

November 7, 2010 Sanibel Island, FL (USA)

ACM Group 2010 Conference site

Web 2.0 tools are penetrating into organizations after their successful adoption in the consumer domain (e.g., social networking; sharing of photos, videos, tags, or bookmarks; wiki-based editing). Some of these new tools and the collaborative processes that they support on the large scale are often referred to as Collective Intelligence (CI).

This workshop, co-organized by PARC, XRCE, IBM Research, and University of Milano-Bicocca, brings together leading researchers and designers who are studying or developing CI tools aimed at workers in organizations. The goal is to further articulate the emerging research agenda for this new CSCW area and define new observed forms of CI in organization. Studies of communities, CI tools, and new methods will be discussed. This is the second edition of this workshop, after a successful first venue occurred at ACM CSCW 2010 (www.parc.com/event/980/collective-intelligence-in-organizations.html).

Workshop Themes and Questions

Workshop themes of interest

1. Feeding CI. Knowledge creation, capture and use: infrastructures; e.g., Q&A, sharing and lurking in CMS.
2. Exploiting and institutionalizing CI. Knowledge reuse and community development; e.g., wikis, tools for communities and organizational memory, recommendation tools, business process.
3. Advanced CI functions. Brainstorming, sense-making and decision-making, voting, planning, e.g., collective sensemaking; semantic web tools.
4. Research and design methods:
a) Methods for measuring key CI factors in specific domains: e.g., critical mass, incentives, ownership, metrics of participation and success, metrics of decision quality.
b) Methods for developing CI tools; e.g., scenarios, personas, storytelling, participatory design.

Research and Design Questions

What defines the forms of CI that emerge in specific organizations? How are they different from other forms of CI observed in the consumer Web?

  • What are the organizational processes that are best suited to bottom-up organization and what features of CI tools can capture these?
  • What is the degree of domain modeling that the tools need to support to leverage content created and shared?
  • What are available traces from previous activities and how they can be exploited for the current activity and to organize the dynamic knowledge being created?
  • What visualizations and abstractions can help to monitor and make sense of the activities of others?
  • How do factors such as trust, motivation, attribution, and traceability affect information and activity flows in organizations? How can these factors be ‘designed in’ CI tools?
  • What lessons did you learn about metrics and mix of research methods, such field studies and logs analysis, for CI research and design?
