The Conference

CSCW is a multidisciplinary area of research devoted to the use of computers to support cooperative work. The community encompasses interests in systems development and design, the theory and practice of CSCW, the installation and use of CSCW systems, the application of novel technologies, and the relation between the social and the technical.

The ECSCW'05 conference will be the major European forum and meeting place for researchers and practitioners in academia, industry, consulting, or government interested in topics related to the theory, practice, design, or support for collaborative work. The working language of the conference will be English.

The Program

The conference will consist of pre-conference events, technical program and social program. Before the conference proper, two days are reserved for doctoral colloquium, tutorials and workshops. The three-day conference program contains papers, posters, videos, and demonstrations of original CSCW work that will be presented and debated over the conference. The high quality of contributions selected for the conference will ensure that it will be an important forum for the presentation and discussion of the state of the art and future visions for Computer Supported Cooperative Work.

See the advance program.

The Venue

For the first time ever, ECSCW will take place in France. The sessions will take place at the Maison de la Mutualité, a 1920's building in the heart of the Latin Quarter, in Paris. The conference venue is close to the river Seine, a short walk from Notre-Dame, Jardin des Plantes, the Panthéon and the Sorbonne. Housing will be provided in a range of nearby hotels, either through a reservation service or directly. The Latin Quarter provides numerous restaurants, nightclubs and entertainment for relaxation and fun after conference sessions, while the rest of Paris is easily accessible via the subway system (le Métro).

The Organization

ECSCW'05 is organized by AFIHM, the French association for Human-Computer Interaction, in cooperation with INRIA, the French National Research Institute in Computer Science.
