This conference deals with foundational issues in computer support
for collaboration, so should be of interest to the CSCW community,
not just those working on educational applications. -- D.S.

Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) 2005:
The next 10 years!
May 30-June 4, 2005
The CSCL conference has become an internationally-recognized
forum for the exchange of research findings related to learning
in the context of collaborative activity and the exploration of
how such learning might be augmented through technology.
CSCL 2005 marks the 10 year anniversary of the first CSCL
Conference held at Indiana University in 1995. Subsequent
meetings have been held at the University of Toronto, Stanford,
University of Maastricht (Netherlands), University of Colorado at
Boulder, and the University of Bergen (Norway). CSCL 2005 will be
held in Taipei, Taiwan, a bustling international city that brings
together ancient cultural traditions with a commitment to world
leadership in advancing technology.
This anniversary of the first conference is an excellent
opportunity to reflect both on where we have been and where we
need to go as a growing field of inquiry. Just as the first
meeting was instrumental in shaping the trajectory of the field,
the conference in Taipei will play an important role in
consolidating an increasingly international and interdisciplinary
community and defining the direction of the field for the next 10
Researchers, designers, educators, and students from all relevant
disciplines are invited to participate, including anthropology,
cognitive, social and educational psychology, communication
studies, computer science, design, didactics, education,
linguistics and semiotics, philosophy of education, sociology,
and subject matter specialties.
All accepted submissions will be submitted and published as
either full papers or short papers. Papers will be assigned to

parallel paper sessions.
Short Papers: 2-3 pages. Suitable for work that is significant
yet is either still in progress or does not require a long
format to report. Authors will give a brief presentation,
followed by the author's choice of a small group demonstration,
interactive poster, further presentation, or any combination of
Additionally, Doctoral Consortium participants and organizers of
Interactive Events, Panels, Tutorials, and Workshops will each be
allocated 2-3 pages in the proceedings.
Based on reviewer and participant recommendations, select full
papers will be nominated to develop extended versions to the

Collaborative Learning. There will also be a prize for best
student full paper.
