DSI – Workshop on digital technology to support social innovation
Submission deadline (extended): NEW deadline! You now have until October 8th to submit your paper
The advent of the Web 2.0 enabled the growth of user-generated content, virtual communities and new forms of collaboration over the internet. Since then, multiple platforms, such as the CAPS platforms , have emerged tapping into collective knowledge for fostering awareness, collaboration and innovation.
The aim of this workshop is to collect the lessons learned from different platforms and settings, and understand the requirements and challenges for building and using digital platforms to effectively engage broad participation in the social innovation process. The workshop offers a forum to reflect on the result of experiments, pilots and tests of such platforms in order to pave the way forward for digital social innovation in the Next Generation Internet. Our intended output is a concrete set of findings, important research questions and digital social innovation opportunities.
We welcome researchers, companies and policy makers to submit theirs articles or simply join us for the round-table discussion about the future of Digital Social Innovation.
For this workshop, we will be accepting scientific contributions around the thematics of digital technology to support social innovation from design to practice. We will be accepting papers ranging from 6-14 pages covering original research findings. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings (Springer LNCS), presented at the workshop and serve as a basis for a round-table discussion.
DSI is organized in collaboration between the SOCRATIC, MAKE-IT and OPEN4CITIZENS CAPS projects.
