overview due

The ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) brings
together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both
the technical and social aspects of collaboration. The CSCW Doctoral
Colloquium is a special forum at the conference in which Ph.D. students
can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of
experienced CSCW researchers and practitioners. The colloquium itself
will include a dinner Friday evening, November 7, and will be held all
day Saturday, November 8, and will be held alongside the conference in
San Diego, California.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches
that inform CSCW, including sociology, computer science, cognitive
science, and related fields. We are particularly interested in
applications from institutions and groups that have not traditionally
been well-represented at past CSCW conferences.

Applicants should be late-stage Ph.D. students with an already well-
established direction of research relevant to CSCW, and who would
benefit from attendance at the Doctoral Colloquium; preference will be
given to students within 2 years of graduation.

The Colloquium committee will select approximately 15 participants who
will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work
during the Colloquium, to be followed by a discussion. Participants will
also present their research in an interactive poster session during the
main technical program of the conference.

Applicants should submit the following items (by email to
[log in to unmask] , with the subject line "CSCW2008 Colloquium

	* A two-page overview of your doctoral research that describes
your research question, work in progress, and expected contributions.
This overview should also include (1) a paragraph that articulates what
you hope to get from attending the CSCW Doctoral Colloquium, and (2) an
abstract of no more than 100 words. This overview should be formatted
according to the ACM SIG Proceedings Template. Submissions must be in
PDF format.
	* A short (2-3 paragraph) biographical sketch, in PDF format
	* An up-to-date curriculum vita
	* OPTIONALLY, one publication as an indicator of your progress
in your research, in PDF format
	* An email letter from your supervisor sent to
[log in to unmask], indicating that they support your application to
the colloquium and that they agree that your research is at an
appropriate stage for participation. The email should have "CSCW
Doctoral Colloquium: " in the subject header.
	Submissions: [log in to unmask]

Submissions should be made by email to [log in to unmask] with the
subject line "CSCW2008 Colloquium Submission." All questions can also be
directed to this address.

All submissions must be received by the chairs by 5:00pm (17:00) Pacific
Time on Friday July 18, 2008. Submissions received after this date will
not be considered. All submissions will be acknowledged by email.


We anticipate-but cannot guarantee-being able to cover some hotel costs
and conference registration for all Doctoral Colloquium participants. We
also hope to be able to cover at least some portion of air fare for
domestic (US) participants; non-US participants will have to cover their
own air fare however. We will update this CFP as more details on funding
become available.
