IWIC2009 was a great success! The workshop attracted 99 participants from 17 countries, including students, researchers, and field workers. Enthusiastic and productive discussions were held for two days. We would like to send out special thanks to all the authors, reviewers, committee members and staffs, who made the workshop possible. We look forward to seeing you at IWIC 2010 in Copenhagen!
The main theme of this workshop is intercultural collaboration, from both technical and socio-cultural perspectives. Topics will include collaboration support (such as natural language processing, Web, and Internet technologies), social psychological analyses of intercultural interaction, and case studies from activists working to increase mutual understanding in our multicultural world.
