2015 (English)In: CSCW'15 Companion Proceedings of the 18th ACM Conference Companion on Computer Supported Cooperative Work & Social Computing, New York: ACM Press, 2015, 117-121 p.Conference paper (Other academic)Text
A number of technological platforms, that have come to be known as the "sharing economy" or "collaborative consumption," are disrupting established industries with new decentralized peer-to-peer marketplaces. While peer-to-peer exchange and co-use practices are a relatively new research area, they are rapidly developing in both commercial and nonprofit variants. In this session, we bring together people from different disciplines to explore these issues, and to present future directions for research on sharing economies in the CSCW community. Our aim is to widen the "sharing economy" debate in CSCW. In order to better situate this stream of work within CSCW, we will connect "sharing economy" research to broader topical issues and concerns, such as networked coordination of peer-to-peer activities and the future of work and labor.
