        From: Karin Hansson 
        Subject: CfP: Datafication and cultural heritage. ECSCW 2020, new deadline April 10.

Call for proposals
Datafication and cultural heritage - provocations, threats, and design
A workshop at ECSCW 2020, June 14, in Siegen, Germany.

Due to the current circumstances we are extending the deadline and we
will accept remote presentations. New deadline is  April 10th

Increasing digitization and the emergence of new data sharing practices
are likely to change how our understanding of history is negotiated.
Archiving practices are not only fundamental for our understanding of
the past but vital in navigating the present. We have to pay particular
attention to the consequences of the interfaces that curate history,
especially in relation to big data. Crowdsourcing, social media, linked
open data, and other participatory and open science practices challenge
the archiving practices in cultural heritage institutions, but they also
open up new opportunities and practices when it comes to understanding
and defining our shared culture.
In this workshop we will bring together researchers who have studied
these issues or are working to develop critical perspectives on
archiving practices.

Deadline for submissions is April 10, 2020.

The maximum length of a position paper is 2,000 words. The papers should
follow the CSCW formatting guidelines: 

Submissions and inquiries shall be sent to the following email address:

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to contribute to a special
issue on the theme.
