Workshop program

This one-day workshop will explore the topics in mini presentations and brainstorming sessions, and will result in a draft for a typology of participation in crowdwork.
The workshop is divided into two sessions and will involve additional online activities organized both before and after the workshop. In the first half of the workshop, participants will present their research on the topics. The second half of the workshop consists of a brainstorming session where the topics of the workshop are further explored.

Post-Workshop Plans

We will take the workshop as an opportunity to explore future collaboration, e.g., a mailing list and collaborative research projects. The objective with the workshop is to develop a typology of participation in crowdwork based on an overview of the field. This research overview will be further developed in a collaborative paper. Furthermore, selected contributions from the workshop will be considered for a special issue in a HCI journal.
