The CSCW Community

162 members (105 participants, 57 affiliates)


The SIGCHI Executive Committee is looking for volunteers to serve on a group dedicated to assessing the gender diversity process of SIGCHI conferences more broadly. Please email me at if you are interested in participating, and I'll forward your name to the VP of Conferences.

I believe this is a good effort of the Council of Steering Committees to get a baseline of our current efforts, successes and failures in this area, and am glad members of our community would inform the process.


Community Information

The job of the Steering Committee is to represent the entire CSCW Community. The Chair and Chair-Elect are elected positions and they appoint additional members to ensure coverage across the many diverse groups within the CSCW community, including major geographic areas (North America, Europe, and Asia) as well as main roles (academia, industry, graduate students) and areas of research interest. The complete set of members of the Steering Committee is:

    Cliff Lampe (Chair, Elected), University of Michigan --
    Amy Bruckman (Chair-elect, Elected), GA Tech --
    Daniel Avrahami (Appointed), FXPal
    Luigina Ciolfi (Appointed), Sheffield Hallam University
    Amy Zhang (Appointed), MIT
    Kevin Crowston (Appointed), Syracuse University
    Hao-Chuan Wang (Appointed), National Tsing Hua University


This Community will serve the various needs, as they arise, of the broader CSCW community. In particular, it will provide a venue for people interested in CSCW and Social Computing to discuss timely issues of importance to the field. It will also oversee the annual SIGCHI CSCW conference, choosing conference chairs, advising on site selection, and considering any policy issues regarding the conference that may arise. The Community will also coordinate with conferences that have similar missions or content, such as GROUP, ECSCW, and any others that attract significant CSCW content.


Chair: Cliff Lampe (with Amy S Bruckman as officer-elect)
