COCOA 2010: Workshop on Coordination, Collaboration and Ad-hoc Processes

posted Nov 8, 2010, 11:57 AM by Hamid Motahari   [ updated Nov 15, 2010, 10:30 AM ]

The COCOA 2010 workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in coordination, collaboration and ad-hoc processes.  The objectives of the workshop are to stimulate discussion on fundamental issues and research challenges, as well as explore cross-fertilization among different perspectives, including CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) community and BPM (Business Process Management) community.  Other perspectives from other fields, such as anthropology, ethnography, psychology, natural language processing, etc. are also very welcome.

We are inviting a selected group of participants to join us on Monday, December 6 2010 at HP Labs, Palo Alto, CA.  Invitees are encouraged to submit a short position paper to help lead into discussions.  We will accommodate as many position papers as practical for presentation during the workshop.

 Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • State of the art in concepts and practices in CSCW, BPM for work coordination, collaboration and ad-hoc activities
  • The scope and the meaning of concepts/terms (e.g., process, conversation, activity, task, action item, etc)?
  • Models, tools & work practices to improve people productivity
  • Theories describing how people work in different settings (enterprise, informal, processes, etc)? Theories or methodologies of collaboration among people? 
  • Context-aware collaboration and coordination
  • Personalized environment for collaboration and coordination
  • Usability/user experience  for enterprise productivity tools
  • Social software platforms/tools for collaboration in the enterprise
  • Formal process models vs flexible.ad-hoc processes, vs best practice processes
  • Adaptive Case Management
  • Groupware technologies

We are planning to publish the collection of position papers with a report of the workshop in an online proceedings.
