Abstract. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners who are exploring issues related to designing and implementing collaborative solutions for the enterprise. It will explore the opportunities of Web 2.0 technologies to leverage the collective intelligence and social creativity of the enterprise and the appropriateness to support best practices of work groups and individuals.The popularity of Web 2.0 has changed employees’ expectation. The new generation of knowledge workers is accustomed to on-line participation and social networking. This generates expectations on IT to deploy solutions like Wiki’s, enterprise search, and on-line communities for internal collaboration. But to what extend can Web 2.0 collaboration services and community models transfer from a mass public context to an enterprise context? The success of on-line workplace communities is determined not only by the initial functionality of software artifacts, but in fundamental ways by the active participation of employees and the formation of social networks.

Participation. Participants should have research or industry experience in one or several research areas including: professional-oriented design, user-centered design, participatory design, meta-design, social networking and creativity and innovation in the workplace. We will seek a diverse selection that is multi-disciplinary (including members of CSCW, CHI, CSCL, DIS, and others), multi-sector (including industry and academia), and multi-national.
Participant should submit a position paper to describe their research experience. Workshop organizers will review position papers for relevance and appropriateness. Position paper should be 2-4 pages in standard CSCW format, and be submitted by sending a PDF file to:
