The 16th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and
Social Computing (CSCW 2013) will be held February 23-27 in San Antonio,
Texas, USA. CSCW is the premier venue for research in the design and use
of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and
Summer is coming to an end, and CSCW deadlines for several venues are
– Interactive posters
– Doctoral colloquium
– Student volunteers
Details of these venues and important dates follow.
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. We have accepted an exciting
slate of workshops for this year’s conference:
W1: The 13th International Workshop on Collaborative Editing Systems
W2: Trust in Virtual Teams: Theory and Tools
W3: Beyond Formality: Informal Communication in Health Practices
W4: CrowdCamp 2013: Rapidly Iterating Crowd Ideas
W5: Better safe than sorry: Collaboration in Safety-Critical Environments
W6: Social Capital and Entrepreneurship in CSCW
W7: Workshop on Social Media Question Asking
W8: Collaborative Information Seeking: Consolidating the Past, Creating the Future
W9: Measuring Networked Social Privacy: Qualitative & Quantitative Approaches
W10: CSCW and education: Viewing education as a site of work practice
More information, including deadlines for position papers and other
workshop-related submissions, will be posted by the organizers at the
link above as it becomes available.
Deadline: November 2, 2012, 5PM PDT
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.
Deadline: October 23, 2012, 5:00 PM PDT
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 today′s 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.
Deadline: November 2, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT
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.
Deadline: November 2, 2012
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.
Deadline: November 2, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT
The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students meet and
discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced CSCW
researchers and practitioners. We welcome applicants from a broad range
of disciplines and approaches that inform CSCW, including anthropology,
sociology, computer science, cognitive science, organizational studies,
and related fields. We are particularly interested in applications from
institutions and groups that have not traditionally been
well-represented at past CSCW conferences.
Student volunteers are essential to the success of the CSCW conference.
While the volunteer duties are not always glamorous, they do provide a
unique opportunity to interact closely with CSCW contributors,
attendees, and other student volunteers. Volunteering provides a
structured, cordial environment for students in various stages of their
research career to become part of the CSCW community. Students often
report that the ‘social networks’ they build from these meetings are the
greatest benefit of being a volunteer.
Deadlines will be posted at the above link shortly.
