Home Program Registration Venue Committees Sponsorship Student Volunteers Call for participation

We invite contributions on all topics related to CSCW, including technical, empirical, and theoretical aspects of collaboration and computer systems. As always, a key aim of the conference is to be multdisciplinary, combining and where possible truly integrating the social with the technical.Topics of interest include (but are not limited to).

Explorations of the challenges and opportunities presented by mobile and wireless services

  • Collaborative use of computer technology in the home and in public settings, as well as work settings
  • The architecture and design of novel technical systems
  • Theories and models of collaborative action
  • Methods for understanding collaborative settings and designing technical systems
  • Empirical studies of collaborative settings
  • Evaluation techniques for collaborative systems
  • Collaborative learning and KM in the workplace
  • CSCW and organisational change

Submission categories include Papers, Tutorials, Demos & Videos, Workshops, Position Papers, Posters and Doctoral Consortium. (All submission categories are now closed).

Papers (submissions closed)

Chairs: Hans Gellersen, University of Lancaster
Kjeld Schmidt, IT University of Copenhagen

Papers on original work on CSCW topics are invited. Papers should present original reports of substantive new work and make clear the novel aspects of the work they present and their contribution to the development of CSCW theory and CSCW systems design. Empirical studies of work should stress their relationship to cooperative systems development. Applications papers should stress their contribution to understanding how to support cooperative work. Papers addressing novel techniques and technologies should clearly identify the relevance and importance to CSCW. All paper will be evaluated on their novelty, significance, quality and contribution to the field by at least three PC members (double-blind anonymous review).
