Our research to feature at CSCW 2019

5 September 2019

As the global push towards digitisation continues to advance, research into the design and use of cooperative technologies is of crucial importance to the future of work and social activities. Each year, leading researchers and practitioners attend the ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW 2019), to explore the latest findings in this emerging area.

CSCW 2019 will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Austin, Texas between the 7–14 of November. We are thrilled to announce a number of successful paper submissions to CSCW 2019 from the Human-Computer Interaction this year, including:

Measuring the Effects of Gender on Online Social Conformity

Senuri Wijeyanake, Niels van Berkel, Vassilis Kostakos, and Jorge Goncalves

Crowdsourcing Perceptions of Fair Predictors for Machine Learning: A Recidivism Case Study

Niels van Berkel, Jorge Goncalves, Danula Hettiachchi, Senuri Wijeyanake, Ryan M. Kelly, and Vassilis Kostakos

Interrogating Social Virtual Reality as a Communication Medium for Older Adults

Steven Baker, Ryan M. Kelly, Jenny Waycott, Romina Carrasco, Thuong Hoang, Frances Batchelor, Elizabeth Ozanne, Briony Dow, Jennifer Warburton, and Frank Vetere

We are looking forward to supporting these members of our research group as they prepare for this year’s conference, and wish them all the best in presenting their findings to an international audience.
