---Workshop Content---

In the workshop, we want to bring together researchers and practitioners reporting on the usage and development of shared visualizations, be it e.g. process models or others. The workshop is intended to provoke discussion and generate new impulses for practice and research.

The usage of graphical representations of work and business process such as process models can be considered a common practice in modern organizations. As their development can become a complex task it is reasonable to draft them collaboratively. Also they become increasingly useful when used by larger groups throughout an organization. However despite modeling being a popular approach in practice, models are hardly used by non-experts and have little impact on the people actually working in these processes. This raises questions such as why there is so little use of models after their creation, how this usage can be increased and which kind of tools and modes of interaction are suitable for non-modeling experts. Furthermore as collaborative modeling most of the time remains restricted to collocated facilitated workshops. This approach however is not feasible as processes have to be rapidly adjusted to changing conditions inside and outside of an organization. Given the increasing usage of graphical representations in organizations, their collaborative use and creation is of vital interest for the CSCW community and therefore this workshop can be a starting point in forming a research community.


The workshop welcomes different kind of contributions, including the description of case studies and other empirical work on model usage and development, position papers e.g. describing future research and educational experiences with collaborative models usage and development.
Topics of the workshop include but are not restricted to the following:
- Collaborative development of and interaction with models in different settings such as:
- Processes and approaches of collaborative modeling
- Processes and settings of collaborative usage of process models
- Overcoming barriers for collaborative use and creation of models and visualizations
- The influence of users on models (e.g. collaborative modeling participants on models) and the influence of models on users (e.g. users discussing a model and behavior changes)


We will accept contributions in two different formats:

- Short papers such as reports of best practices or position papers which may not exceed 3 pages.
- Long papers of such as reports of empirical studies or research in progress which may not exceed 6 pages.

All contributions have to be formatted according to the ECSCW formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format via eMail to

Author kits and paper templates are available at the ECSCW website (

All accepted paper will be published electronically at CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

The ECSCW 2011 conference will be held at Aarhus University, Denmark from
24 to 28 September 2011. ECSCW is a bi-annual, international conference series. Since 1989, it has engaged researchers and scholars from academia and industry with high quality presentations and intense discussions ( ECSCW is interested in cooperative settings in the workplace, in everyday life, and the civic society, and across boundaries between these spheres of life. Submissions should address the unfolding practices of everyday work and life, and the application of computing technologies in these practices. Papers may also focus on design of such technologies or on historical accounts of use. With design is meant processes, methods, and outcoming artefacts. ECSCW solicits reports reflecting a rich variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods, including field studies and participatory approaches.
