ACM Group 2012 - unfortunately it is over... but ACM Group'14 is coming soon

The ACMGroup12 International conference is over - what a pity!  Around 100 participants from may different countries and different research communities met again. Topics were covered from IS, CSCW, organizational learning, knowledge management and CSCL. Have a look here and see the program http://www.acm.org/conferences/group/conferences/group12/index.html . When using the Twitter hashtag #group2012 you find interesing discussions.

The closing panel (organized by Sean Goggins, Drexel University and Isa Jahnke, Umeå University, Sweden) was about CSCL@Work where Gerry Stahl, Drexel University, Anders Morch, University of Oslo, Norway and Thomas Herrmann, University of Bochum, Germany discussed the challenges, theories and methodologies of CSCL at work (Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning at the Workplace) and its potentials for the next ACM Group conferences. The Group conferences are one great opportunity to bridge work and learning, to bridge CSCL and CSCW.


After the conference is before the next conference...
