Claus Bossen is professor at Aarhus University, Department of Digital Design and Information Studies. His current interests focus on the data work that accompanies datafication processes with a specific focus on the healthcare domain. Data work is often rendered invisible by the assumption that data is generated and processed automatically, even though datafication entails new tasks and even new occupations. More generally, his research pivots around ethnographic studies of work, IT and organizations analyzing the design, development, implementation, and use of IT systems. His research fields included CSCW, Participatory Design, Medical Informatics Critical Data Studies, and Science-Technology-Studies.

Christophe Chassot is full professor in computer science and networks at the INSA Toulouse (France), where he is director of research and development. His research activities focus on next-generation communication networks and systems, and their applications. His contributions deal with dynamic and autonomous reconfiguration of new communication architectures taking advantage of recent opportunities in network softwarization and virtualization.

Caroline Datchary is full professor of sociology at Toulouse Jean Jaurès University (France) where she is deputy director of the LISST research laboratory. She is interested in situations of dispersion at work with a view to improving working conditions. Her research fields concern various work situations and combine different methodological approaches.

Shion Guha is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Information and Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto where he directs the Human-Centered Data Science Lab. He is interested in how street level bureaucrats and social workers make decisions from AI algorithms in high stakes decision-making environments such as in child welfare, healthcare, or homelessness.  He often combines computational, technical methodologies with critical, interpretive approaches.  

Sylvie Grosjean (Ph.D.) is full professor at the University of Ottawa and the chair of the Com&Tech Innovations Lab (http://ctilab.ca). Her current research interests include the design and implementation of telehealth innovations as well organizational communication by studying the role of technologies (e.g. Medical Information Systems, telemedicine technologies) on care coordination and clinical decision-making. She develops a codesign approach in health and uses various qualitative methods to analyze human/machine interactions (e.g. video-ethnography). 

Myriam Lewkowicz is Professor at Troyes University of Technology where she heads the pluridisciplinary research group Tech-CICO and the master program. She is interested in defining digital technologies to support existing collective practices or to design new collective activities. This interdisciplinary research proposes reflections and approaches for the analysis and the design of new products and services to support cooperative work. The main application domains for this research for the last fifteen years have been healthcare (social support, coordination, telemedicine) and the industry (digital transformation, maintenance). She is a member of the program committees of the main conferences in Cooperative Work, Social Software, and Human-Machine Interaction, chairs the European scientific association EUSSET, and is deputy editor-in-chief of the CSCW journal, « The Journal of Collaborative Computing and Work Practices ».

Samir Medjiah (Ph.D.) is associate professor in computer systems and networks at Paul Sabatier University - Toulouse III (France) and a researcher in LAAS-CNRS. His main research interests include overlay networks optimization, network virtualization, and software defined networking. He has worked on various R&D projects related to application-driven networking and Network-Application co-optimization.
