Event details

Successful interdisciplinary collaboration is essential to Web Science, yet surprisingly little guidance exists about how to reach across disciplines and achieve successful collaborations. The fast pace of academic and practitioner workplaces limits the opportunities for mindful reflection about success factors in this complex area. This workshop provides that space.

At ICC'14 we will share and reflect on experiences of interdisciplinary collaboration: from the outstanding to the disastrous, and from the surprising to the confusing. If you have ever reached across disciplines and felt there was some lesson to be learned afterwards - whether you had time to reflect on it or not - this is the workshop for you.

We will share experiences of interdisciplinary collaborations, generating keywords for each contribution and identifying parallels, discrepancies and unexpected insights. We will identify key issues and possible solutions in interdisciplinary work, yielding insights for the Web Science community regarding the common issues we face and practical approaches to combat these.
