* Workshop date: June 29, 2013

The workshop aims to assemble a diverse set of participants with an interest in studying or building systems for large-scale ideation and deliberation in business or civic settings. Aside of presenting new work in the area, the goal of the workshop is to enable a multi-disciplinary discussion about the key research questions and related themes underlying the design, deployment, and evaluation of LSID platforms in real world contexts. Therefore, in addition to presentations, the workshop will involve networking activities of all workshop participants in a series of organised discussions on the future developments of deliberation systems and managing collaboration for future joint projects.
The research issues related to workshop area can be summarised by the following problems:
* How can we facilitate interaction of large communities ?
* How can we organise information stored in deliberation systems and enable to utilise this data in an efficient way?
* How can we maintain sustainability of deliberation platforms and stimulate impact of discussions and ideas?
The LSID Workshop invites researchers, engineers, software developers to present their research and works in the field of idea management and deliberation systems. Papers may deal with methods, models, case studies, practical experiences and technologies.

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Theory of Collaborative Interaction and Deliberation:
* models of crowd knowledge, crowd aggregation, and crowd reasoning
* argumentation theories & technologies
* models of social influence
* influencers identification
* measuring engagement
* social network analysis
* opinion diffusion models
* self organisation, emergence of volunteering, game theory models
* cognitive factors in ideation and deliberation
* deliberation as structured discourse
* discourse modelling
* extrinsic and intrinsic motivational factors
* discovering reasoning patterns
* network structure for collaboration
* systemic properties from node interactions

Technological aspects of Collaborative Systems:
* systems for collective policy amendment
* role-based tools for contributors, decision-makers, reviewers, facilitators, aggregators, and group formation
* real-time deliberation and stream reasoning
* discourse and arguments visualization
* visual analytics
* analytics functionalities for reflection
* awareness and self-correcting tools
* automatic user profiling from contributions
* social ideation & business process management
* reputation systems
* incentives and reward systems

Applications in practice of organisations:
* energy infrastructure, business strategy, pub. policy, emergencies
* grassroots innovation & decisions
* democracy, open & accountable governance
* earth policies, social sustainability, health, ageing, participation
* artistic cooperation, large-scale games, films

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts, neither submitted nor accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference, or journal. They must be written in English, and formatted using the ACM SIGCHI two column layout (http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform). Manuscripts should be submitted (in PDF format) through the EasyChair system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=lsdeliberation). In case of any inquires, please do not hesitate to contact the organising committee: lsdeliberation@xrce.xerox.com.

The submissions should focus on one or more of the following categories:
* Empirical studies: e.g., case studies illustrating practices and pointing to specific design requirements for business or civic settings.
* Designs and demos of new systems or proof-of-concept prototypes of systems for supporting large-scale ideation and deliberation; or in-depth evaluations of systems already deployed.
* Theoretical contributions on ideation and deliberation (processes and systems) that can inform future design and research.
* Cases of multi-disciplinarily research showing the interplay between field studies, analysis of requirements, and development of systems.

Depending on the scope and research maturity, we invite submissions of two kinds of papers:
* Position Papers: describing preliminary work, initial research results or vision papers proposing exciting new ideas for research and development of either Idea Management or large-scale deliberation systems. (1,500-2,000 words)
* Extended Papers: reporting more substantial research or development work. The extended papers report on mature research results and present an evaluation that delivers new insight into problem areas described in the workshop themes. (up to 8,000 words)

Three researchers will carefully review each submission using review criteria shared by the organisers. The selection criteria includes the significance of the contribution, relevance to the workshop themes, and clarity. The maximum number of contributions accepted for presentation will be about 20.
