General Participation
Interested individuals should submit a position paper in CSCW extended abstracts format (between 2-4 pages, excluding references) that addresses the workshop theme and one or more of the highlighted topics. Submissions will go through a peer-reviewed process under the workshop program committee, and will be accepted based on relevance and potential to contribute to the workshop discussion and goals.

The members of the workshop organizing committee will review the position papers, recruiting additional reviewers from the co-located CSCW community if needed. Submissions should be in electronic form (PDF format).

Up to twenty-five participants will be invited to participate in the workshop based on reviews of the position papers. Only one author per submission will be invited to attend the workshop. If additional authors would like to be considered, separate applications should be submitted. Prior to the workshop, participants will be requested to read all accepted position papers.

Student Participation

This will provide students pursuing research in this area a unique opportunity to interact with key researchers in the field and help define future directions. Students will need to submit a one-page paper describing their interest in the area of human-centered data science and their motivation for wanting to participate.
