Abstract

A growing challenge in social and collaborative computing is to develop tools for large-scale ideation and deliberation (LSID). Business and civic organizations are seeking new technologies and services to let their communities participate in discussions, while communities increasingly expect such opportunities. Some cases require tools for democratic deliberations; others need tools for defining goals and influencing the community toward sustainability. To satisfy these new needs, the workshop brings together leading researchers, designers, and engineers who are working on this new class of systems. The workshop is aligned with C&T’s focus on community as basic social unit, target and source for which to design new technologies and by which these can be adopted. Following up from a series of four workshops and a special issue, the goal is to continue establishing a research community and the agenda on LSID tools for business and civic application domains.
