Call for Papers

GROUP '03
International Conference on Supporting Group Work

November 9-12, 2003
Sanibel Island, FL USA

PLEASE NOTICE THAT THE SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED

GROUP '03 is interested in topics related to computer-based systems 
that have an impact on groups, organizations and social networks.  A 
strong emphasis of GROUP '03 is the integration of multiple 
computer-based tools and technologies.  Relevant issues include the 
design,
implementation, deployment, evaluation, research methodologies, and 
impact of these systems.
GROUP'03 is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery's 
Special Interest Group on Supporting Group Work (ACM SIG GROUP).
http://www.acm.org/siggroup/conferences/group03

Scope
GROUP '03 attempts to integrate two themes of research: the 
organizational and behavioral issues and the modeling and 
implementation issues associated with group work.  It brings together 
researchers and practitioners from different areas working on the 
development,
introduction, management, deployment, and analysis of computer-based 
systems supporting group work within organizations.  We particularly 
encourage submissions and participation from industry.  Suggested 
topics include but are not limited to:

Social Impact Issues:
_ Experiences with the computing systems applications that support 
group or organizational processes
_ New forms of education, entertainment and social relations based on 
cooperation technologies
_ Understanding and modeling of groups or organizations
_ Strategies and solutions for the combination or integration of the 
emerging Internet businesses
_ Social aspects of globally distributed computing and new 
cooperative work technologies
_ Digital communities: experiences and evaluation
_ Impacts of wireless, mobile and wearable technologies on cooperative
work
_ Qualitative analyses of cooperative work

Technical Implementation Issues:
_ Organizational computing systems and infrastructure
_ New groupware solutions and technologies
_ Computer-supported collaboration and negotiation
_ Coordination and workflow technology
_ Cooperative knowledge management, organizational learning and 
organizational memory
_ Cooperation technologies for education, entertainment and social life
_ Innovative forms of human-computer interaction for cooperative
technologies

Papers
Paper submission on original research or industrial papers on any of 
the conference topics are invited.  Research papers should make clear

development of system for supporting groups, organizations or social
networks.  Industrial papers should describe technical or key 
business issues in applying group technology.  On-line submissions

Tutorials
The tutorial program will offer the opportunity to learn about 
concepts, methods, systems, and techniques for specific aspects of
supporting group work. Experts on any field of the conference scope 
are encouraged to submit a tutorial proposal.  The proposal should
contain a title, aim and objectives, content outline, intended 
audience and description of the qualification and expertise of the 
instructors. 
In addition it should also specify the maximum number of
