HICSS : Call for minitrack "Developing Visual Collaborative Tools"

Cher.e.s collègues

Je vous prie de trouver ci-joint l'appel à communications pour la conférence HICSS 53 (Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences) dans le minitrack "Developing Visual Collaborative Tools" (Track Collaboration Systems and Technology) (7 et 10 janvier 2020). La période de soumission des papiers est du 15 avril au 15 Juin 2019.

Call for papers:

Visual collaborative tools have recently emerged and gained popularity to innovate and/or address problems collaboratively within teams. By providing a shared language and/or a shared visualization, they support several challenges of collaboration related to sense-making and sense-giving and action planning in multi or transfunctional teams. One of the goals of these tools is to assist teams to explore and/or brainstorm on a given problem. This is especially useful in processes which need to generate new options and alternatives through design. These tools allow for better structuring and bounding of a problem and facilitate solution searches in innovative ways during collaboration. Prominent examples of visual inquiry tools are the Business Model Canvas and the Value Proposition Canvas which were surprisingly well adapted worldwide. This minitrack focuses on the design and development challenges, related theoretical explanations and justifications, and empirical evidence of using such tools. We also invite works that develop evaluation frameworks, or conduct empirical assessments of the effects of using these tools. We also encourage submissions that report the design processes of such tools and/or their conceptual modelling, as well as, their ontological and/or cognitive foundations (see more details in the doc attached).
