Join Us

We invite everybody with an interest to join the discussion to submit short submission papers in the form of an extended abstract of 1-4 pages or an extended pictorial. Like extended abstracts, pictorial abstracts are short, but focus on integrating visual expressions with text. Since we welcome participants' personal perspectives, we believe that pictorial abstracts will allow for more free-form and creative contributions about their experiences of activism, which can be difficult to only express with words. For inspiration, here are some examples of papers getting very creative: [1] [2] [3]

Submission papers should reflect on first-person (singular or plural, I or We) experiences, goals, worries, joys. Possible thematic areas are outlined in our proposal, but submissions are by no means bound to correspond to the these themes - we are looking forward to any and all topics participants might want to bring to the workshop.

Please make use of the ACM Extended Abstract Template as best as possible. However, we encourage you to get creative - you do not need to follow the usual paper structure. The purpose of the submissions is not to evaluate your argument but to get to know you and your interest in the topics of the workshop.

Send your submissions by September 17, 2021, midnight Anywhere On Earth to [hello at activatingacademia dot community]. You will receive feedback on September 24. Participants are expected to register for the CSCW conference and pay the registration fee of 20$.
