Muenster 2015
2nd International Workshop on the Changing Nature of Work
Working Smarter with ICT

May 26, 09.00 – 17.00 (Leonardo-Campus 11)

This workshop will gather researchers interested in the ongoing transformation of work incurred by the fast development of information and communication infrastructures. As the nature of work is deeply embedded in the fabric of our society and life, its transformation has implications for the economy, the appreciation of work and performance, sustainability of modes of work and well-being, division of labor and specialization, education, careers and lifetime perspectives on work. Outcomes of this workshop may provide a sneak preview on new ways of working and organizing work and collaboration. The aim of the 2nd workshop will be to develop a Research Agenda on the Changing Nature of Work. The workshop will combine brief impulse presentations, round table discussions and a concluding panel. Participants will make concerted efforts to identify research areas and to develop a frameworks for future research. You are invited to submit extended abstracts about your research (maximum 5 pages). As the goal of the workshop is to exchange ideas, similar papers will be grouped and discussed together in a round table format.
