CSCW 2013 SECOND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
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.
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.
May 25, 2012: Title and Abstract requested June 1, 5:00 p.m. PDT: Submissions due
June 29, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT
October 23, 2012, 5:00 PM PDT
November 2, 2012, 5PM PDT
November 2, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT
November 2, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
Workshops co-chairs: Jeremy Birnholtz, Cornell University & Andy Crabtree,
University of Nottingham
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
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
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
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,
Conference co-chairs: Amy Bruckman, Georgia Tech & Scott Counts, Microsoft
