CSCW 2017 Best Paper Award

It’s been a fantastic honour to receive a Best Paper Award at CSCW 2017 for the paper co-authored by Fabiano Pinatti, myself and Breda Gray “Detailing a Spectrum of Motivational Forces Shaping Nomadic Practices”. The paper is based on Fabiano‘s doctoral work as part of the “Nomadic Work/Life” project at the University of Limerick, and can be found on ACM Digital Library or by emailing me. Fabiano (now at the University of Siegen) did the honours presenting the work at the conference in Portland.
Abstract: “Recent CSCW research has shown that nomadicity can be seen as a dynamic process that emerges as people engage with practices supporting them in the mobilisation of their workplace to accomplish work in and across different locations. This paper elaborates on the emergent aspects of the process by detailing a spectrum of motivational and contextual forces that surround and shape nomadic practices. The paper contributes to existing CSCW literature on nomadicity and extends it by articulating the complex intersections of motive and context that shape nomadic practices. The findings that the paper presents emerged from an ethnographic study of a group of academics and their nomadic work/life practices.”
