What is the conference about?

For over 25 years, the GROUP conferences have showcased the work of researchers and practitioners on the development, introduction, management, deployment, and analysis of computer-based collaborative systems. A strong emphasis of GROUP conferences is to foster a discourse on collaborative technology that bridges the fields of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Information Systems (IS), Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), and "Learning at the workplace" ([email protected]). Relevant issues include the design, implementation, deployment, evaluation, and impact of these systems as well as examinations of relevant research methodologies.

Consider joining us at the Group Conference from Nov. 13-16, 2016.
