Sustaining Community: The Role and Design of Incentive Mechanisms in Online Systems

2nd International Conference on Communities and Technologies

What makes communities grow and prosper, or wither and die? In this workshop we'll explore this question by taking a close look at how incentive structures interact with short and long term viability. We'll address questions such as "What motivates participants to contribute?" "What social and technical mechanisms support (or deter) contribution?" and "How and to what extent can designers design sustainable communities?"
