                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                              CRIWG 2008

               14th International Workshop on Groupware
                        September 14-18, 2008
                         Omaha, Nebraska, USA

                - Submission deadline: June 5, 2008 -


The Collaboration Research International Workshop on Groupware
(CRIWG) seeks scientific and engineering papers that inform the
design, development, deployment, and use of groupware and the work
practices they support. Founded in 1995, CRIWG has become a
significant forum for academic researchers and professionals to
exchange ideas and experiences about problems and solutions related
to group technology.

Most challenges in the groupware field require a multidisciplinary,
multi-methodological approach. CRIWIG seeks papers on groupware from
a wide variety of academic perspectives and epistemologies, ranging
from collaborative and exploratory research, to theory building and
testing, applied research, engineering, and innovative evaluation
methods. Researchers can report their ideas, theories, models,
designs and experimental results to CRIWG either by submitting full
paper contributions, in case of mature works, and shorter papers
reporting innovative work in progress. As in previous years, the
authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended
versions to selected journals. PhD students are invited to present
their research in the doctoral colloquium.

The CRIWG 2008 workshop seeks paper contributions on the following key
- Collaboration Technologies and Technology Issues, for example:
-- Systems, software, and data architectures for groupware
-- Jointly authored pages, streaming, and information access technologies
-- Groupware UI considerations
-- Groupware development frameworks and toolkits
-- Groupware Design Approaches
-- Access control, alerts, attention mechanisms, presence indicators,
-- Privacy, security
- Collaboration Concepts and Theories, for example:
-- Group Productivity, efficiency, effectiveness
-- Collaborative modeling tools
-- Theory of satisfaction with group work and groupware
-- Collaborative engineering systems
-- Theory on acceptance, adoption, and diffusion of groupware and group
work practices
-- Collaboration across and between cultures
- Aggregated systems
-- Group support systems
-- Workflow management systems
-- Collaborative project management systems
- Applications Domains for Groupware, for example:
-- Medical applications
-- Academic learning
-- Emergency management
-- Mobile collaboration
-- Productive collaboration in virtual environments
- Social Aspects of groupware, for example:
-- Group dynamics
-- Virtual worlds and communities
-- Social tagging, folksonomy
-- Work modeling

The CRIWG workshop is supported by the Collaboration Research
International Working group on Groupware, an open community of
researchers. Traditionally, CRIWG is organized in remote places
alternating between the Americas and Europe, with a small number of
presentations, fostering critical discussion, team building and
collaboration. The location selected for the CRIWG 2008 workshop is
Omaha, in the state of Nebraska, USA. The University of Nebraska at
Omaha will host and organize the workshop.


- CRIWG Workshop: September 14-18, 2008
- Full and Work in Progress Papers
-- Submission deadline:  June  5
-- Notification of acceptance: July 5
-- Camera ready papers due:  July 30
- Doctoral Colloquium Papers
-- Submission deadline: July 30


The CRIWG 2008 full and work in progress papers will be published by
Springer-Verlag as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series. Extended and reviewed best papers will be published in
special issues of international journals.

Electronic paper submissions are accepted in two categories: full
technical papers and work in progress papers. Full papers have a
length of up to 16 pages while work in progress papers should have a
maximum length of 8 pages, both of them following the Springer LNCS
format. Electronic submission will be available in this Web site: Further news will be
published in this Web site:

We will use a double-blind reviewing process. Please, do not include
the author's name and affiliation or any indication, which may
disclose the paper's authorship, in the submitted paper itself. As a
result of the reviewing process, the Program Committee may suggest
changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including
the category of the paper. In this case, a paper will be
conditionally accepted. The PC Chairs will decide on the final
acceptance or rejection, based on the analysis of the revised paper.
The format for the final version will be the Springer LNCS format,
which includes e.g. templates for MS Word and Latex.

Paper submissions for the Doctoral Colloquium are due on July 30,
2008.  For submission guidelines concerning the doctoral colloquium
