CSCW is the premier venue for research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks. The conference explores the technical, social, material, and theoretical challenges of designing technology to support collaborative work and life activities.
Georgia Institute of Technology is making significant contributions to the field as the conference celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2017. Atlanta-based researchers have published work in a range of challenge areas, including privacy for social media, fake news, online movements, health tracking and online self-harm.
The GVU Center at Georgia Tech is an incubator for this work, fostering community among researchers and helping them advance novel approaches for people-centered computing and applications in the real world.
