Call for Participation

The conference is soliciting high quality contributions that report

  • novel techniques and technologies relevant to CSCW,
  • empirical studies of work that contribute to the design space of CSCW,
  • enhancement of the conceptual foundations of CSCW.

In particular, the conference welcomes contributions that focus on:

  • Comparative analyses of empirical investigations that contribute to a deeper understanding of single application domains of CSCW or aspects of CSCW, which cross different domains
  • New computer-enabled forms of organisation
  • Collaboratories and distributed scientific work, including papers, which reflect on CSCW aspects of e-science
  • The conception, construction and use of CSCW technologies in complex and demanding settings, like manufacturing, healthcare, security, control systems, etc.
  • The implications of new interaction technologies (pervasive, ubiquitous, handheld …) for CSCW: empirical research of use, studies of integration with other CSCW technologies and applications
  • The integration of CSCW technologies with other technologies used to support organisations, such as information systems, production systems, decision support systems, knowledge management systems, etc.
  • The conception, construction and use of innovative interaction modes for CSCW applications, e.g. interfaces and supportive functionalities, including diverse users, such as impaired users
    Architectures supporting CSCW technologies with quality requirements, such as flexibility, tailorability, adaptability, etc.

All contributions will be evaluated on their novelty, significance, quality and enhancement to the field. Accepted contributions will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer and will be available at They will also be indexed in and available through the ACM digital library.
