CSCW 2015 | Call for Participation
March 14-18, 2015 | Vancouver, BC, Canada
The ACM conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing is the premier venue for research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks. Bringing together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry who are interested in the area of social computing, CSCW addresses both the technical and social challenges encountered when supporting collaboration. The development and application of new technologies continues to enable new ways of working together and coordinating activities.
The conference offers several types of submissions with the following deadlines.
Papers: June 4, 2014
Workshops proposals: August 8, 2014
Interactive Posters: November 10, 2014
Panels: November 10, 2014
Doctoral Colloquium: November 10, 2014
Demonstrations: December 12, 2014
See the individual calls at http://cscw.acm.org/2015/submit/ for more details.
The scope of CSCW spans socio-technical domains including work, home, education, healthcare, the arts, leisure, and entertainment. The conference seeks novel research results or new ways of thinking about, studying, or supporting shared activities in these and related areas:
- Social and crowd computing. Studies, theories, designs, mechanisms, systems, and/or infrastructures addressing social media, social networking, wikis, blogs, online gaming, crowdsourcing, collective intelligence, virtual worlds or collaborative information behaviors.
- System Design. Hardware, architectures, infrastructures, interaction design, technical foundations, algorithms, and/or toolkits that enable the building of new social and collaborative systems and experiences.
- Theories. Critical analysis or theory with clear relevance to the design or study of social and collaborative systems.
- Empirical investigations. Findings, guidelines, and/or studies related to communication, collaboration, and social technologies, practices, or use. CSCW welcomes diverse methods and approaches.
- Mining and Modeling. Studies, analyses and infrastructures for making use of large- and small-scale data.
- Methodologies and tools. Novel methods or combinations of approaches and tools used in building systems or studying their use.
- Domain-specific social and collaborative applications. Including applications to healthcare, transportation, gaming, ICT4D, sustainability, education, accessibility, global collaboration, or other domains.
- Collaboration systems based on emerging technologies. Mobile and ubiquitous computing, game engines, virtual worlds, multi-touch, novel display technologies, vision and gesture recognition, big data, MOOCs, crowd labor markets, SNSs, or sensing systems.
- Crossing boundaries. Studies, prototypes, or other investigations that explore interactions across disciplines, distance, languages, generations, and cultures, to help better understand how to transcend social, temporal, and/or spatial boundaries.
