Title:Session for interaction and engagement: personal infrastructures of distributed scientific collaboration
Author(s):Willis, Matt; Sharma, Sarika; Oesterlund, Carsten; Sawyer, Steve
Subject(s):scientific practices
distributed collaboration
participatory design
Abstract:This session for interaction and engagement (SIE) is designed to involve participants in depicting (a) their own arrangements of digital resources that support their own research and (b) imagining alternative arrangements, new resources, and other practices. As such, this SIE is partly a session on sharing contemporary practices and arrangements in digitally-enabled scientific practice, and partly a session on imagining possible future practices and arrangements. The organizers of this session are keen to study the work of social scientists and smaller-scale science. The infrastructure of social scientists is remarkably different than the cyberinfrastructure of natural, physical, and biological scientists. Rather than having access to larger-scale computational resources directed at investigating certain problems or natural phenomena, social scientists perform a cobbling together of multiple consumer software solutions for storage, analysis, collaboration, and other common scientific practices. Distributed social scientists collaborating on research problems use consumer software to develop their own infrastructure that is continuously standardized and stabilized as the group conducts research.
