Of Interest for INSNA Members - CSCW Conference


16th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing San Antonio, TX, Feb 23-27th http://cscw.acm.org

CSCW is an international and interdisciplinary conference focused on how technology intersects with social practices. By bringing together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry in the area of social computing, CSCW addresses both the technical and social challenges encountered when supporting collaboration.

IMPORTANT DEADLINES CSCW invites a wide variety of contribution types. For complete information about deadlines, submission procedures, and revision timelines, see calls for participation at http://cscw.acm.org.

PAPERS http://cscw.acm.org/participation_paper.html

We invite submissions that detail existing practices or inform the design or deployment of systems. The scope of CSCW includes, but is not limited to, social computing, technologically-enabled or enhanced communication, collaboration, information sharing, and coordination. It includes socio-technical activities at work, in the home, in education, in healthcare, in the arts, for socializing and for entertainment. To support diverse and high-quality contributions, CSCW employs a two-phase review process and does not impose an arbitrary length limit on papers submissions. Please see the conference website for details about the review process and aligning paper contribution and length.

Papers co-chairs: Loren Terveen, University of Minnesota & Cliff Lampe, University of Michigan papers2013@cscw.acm.org

WORKSHOPS http://cscw.acm.org/participation_workshop.html

Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss and explore emerging areas of CSCW research with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. Workshops may focus on any aspect of CSCW theory or practice, established concerns or new ideas; however, radical new ideas expected to draw a sufficient number of participants are very much encouraged! The goal of a workshop is to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other and to envision future directions.

Workshops co-chairs: Jeremy Birnholtz, Cornell University & Andy Crabtree, University of Nottingham workshops2013@cscw.acm.org

VIDEOS http://cscw.acm.org/participation_video.html

The CSCW Videos Program provides researchers, designers, and practitioners with opportunities to present their cutting-edge work in an interactive fashion in front of an expert audience. Videos are ideally suited to demonstrate the practical application of research results and the functionality of CSCW systems, visualize the outcome of research and development projects, or describe inspiring visions of future systems that are grounded in todays reality. The Videos Program provides a venue to present work that involves dynamic interaction, ranging from demonstrations of new systems to complex aspects of group communication and work practice.

Videos co-chairs: Sasa Junuzovic, Microsoft Research & Carman Neustaedter, Simon Fraser University videos2013@cscw.acm.org

DEMONSTRATIONS http://cscw.acm.org/participation_demo.html

CSCW 2013 demonstrations present implementations of new CSCW systems and concepts. The peer-reviewed demonstrations allow conference participants to view novel and noteworthy CSCW systems in action, discuss the systems with those who created them, and try them out. Appropriate demonstrations include applications, technologies, and research prototypes, and may showcase work that has been or is being published at CSCW or elsewhere. Demonstrations can also serve to showcase novel commercial products not previously described in the research literature. Demonstrations should be interactive and provide attendees a hands-on experience. The demo forum is not an opportunity for marketing or sales presentations. Presenters must have been directly involved with the development of the system and be able to explain the unique and novel contributions of the system.

Demos co-chairs: Dan Cosley, Cornell University & Travis Kriplean, University of Washington demos2013@cscw.acm.org

INTERACTIVE POSTERS http://cscw.acm.org/participation_poster.html

CSCW 2013 will include an interactive poster category for late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a full or short paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies, early student research, and other research best presented in an interactive forum. Posters will be presented in a special Poster Session where researchers will interact directly with conference attendees. The posters will remain up throughout the remainder of the conference.

Posters co-chairs: Gary Hsieh, Michigan State University & Chen Zhao, Microsoft posters2013@cscw.acm.org

PANELS http://cscw.acm.org/participation_panel.html

Panels are a great way to generate debate and raise new and interesting issues at CSCW. With panels we want to provide a forum for discussing provocative, controversial, innovative, emerging, boundary-spanning and boundary-breaking issues. While paper sessions provide detailed discussions of work recently completed, panels provide an opportunity to explore what is on the horizon or what is already here but not adequately recognized, acknowledged or discussed.

Panels co-chairs: Darren Gergle, Northwestern University & Siân Lindley, Microsoft Research panels2013@cscw.acm.org

Conference co-chairs: Amy Bruckman, Georgia Tech & Scott Counts, Microsoft Research chairs2013@cscw.acm.org
