COOP 2012 will be the tenth COOP conference and will take place in Marseille, France. Twenty years on from the first conference in 1992 we are asking practitioners and researchers to reflect on what have been the successes and the failures, and what are the remaining challenges in our relevant domains. The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who contribute to the analysis and design of cooperative systems and their integration in organizational unity, public and other settings, and their implications for policy and decision-making.
The COOP conferences suggest that cooperative systems design requires a deep understanding of collective activities, involving both artifacts and social practices.
Contributions are solicited from a wide range of domains contributing to the fields of cooperative systems design and evaluation: CSCW, HCI, Information Systems, Knowledge Engineering, Multi-agent systems, organizational and management sciences, sociology, psychology, anthropology, ergonomics, linguistics, etc.
Papers will be published in proceedings edited by Springer, and will be indexed in the ACM digital library. The conference program will be include workshops and a doctoral consortium.
