This year, the CEIR team once again took part in the annual ENGAGE User Group conference and provided insights into their current research projects.

Theo Heselmans invited us to participate and this was his last event as the Chair of the ENGAGE User Group before handing over the Chairperson role to his two successors. The conference location was “Handelsbeurs”, the historic stock exchange in Antwerp, Belgium, an impressive venue that attracted even more conference participants than in previous years. The conference venue not only offered the perfect environment for exchanging ideas and for networking, but also provided the setting for first-class presentations. The CEIR team prepared two sessions for the conference.

After a very long time of online video conferences and online meetings, we finally had the opportunity to attend a physical conference again! Petra SchubertSusan WilliamsSöhnke GramsMartin Just and Julian Mosen took the long way to Bruges in Belgium to attend the annual conference of the ENGAGE User Group. Theo Heselsmans, Chair of the ENGAGE User Group, invited participants to the brand-new Bruges Meeting & Convention Centre (BMCC) and prepared an impressive agenda with lots of great speakers from all over the world.

Our CEIR team was of course part of the great speakers and we presented two sessions: In the first session, Sue and Julian looked at the challenges of the long-term management of workspaces and collaborative content across their entire lifecycle from creation to destruction. How these challenges can be addressed, was shown with the help of an application we developed to support our team with the long-term management and persistent access to important online content. This application and a social bot called “Wiki Replicator” helps our team to keep track of wikis in HCL Connections. The session was concluded with a lively, interactive audience discussion about other participants experiences and their organisation’s requirements for support for the long-term management of digital workspaces and collaborative content.
