Call for Participation for CSCW 2018 Workshop, "Rural Computing: Beyond Access 
and Infrastructure"

Are you interested in computing research in rural areas? Please consider 
joining us on Sunday, November 4, 2018 for our workshop, “Rural Computing: 
Beyond Access and Infrastructure” at CSCW 2018 in Jersey City, NJ.

There is increasing interest in the fields of computer supported cooperative 
work (CSCW), social computing, and human computer interaction (HCI) in rural 
areas. In particular, scholars have begun to investigate how to make these 
sites more central to computing research and design, and not solely as sites 
with failing or falling behind infrastructure or low technology adoption rates. 
In this workshop, we will foreground how the study of rural areas and their 
relationships to technology draw attention to significant topics in CSCW and 
HCI, including biases inherent in crowd computing platforms, sustainable 
practices, design, and aging populations.

We invite interested participants to submit a 2-4 page position or research 
paper that addresses the workshop theme (rolling deadline starting September 
5). More information, including a full CFP, is available at:
