Call for Papers
The 12th European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work
Submission deadline: February 7, 2011
- Susanne Bodker, Aarhus Uinversity
- Niels Olof Bouvin, Aarhus University
- Wayne Lutters, UMBC, USA
- Volker Wulf, University of Siegen and Fraunhofer FIT, Germany
ECSCW 2011 calls for submissions reporting on investigations into
cooperation in real world settings, designs of innovative technologies
to support collaboration, and studies dealing with the appropriation of
these technologies. Conceptual work related to theory building is
encouraged, as well.
ECSCW is interested in cooperative settings in the workplace, in
everyday life, and the civic society, and across boundaries between
these spheres of life. Submissions should address the unfolding
practices of everyday work and life, and the application of computing
technologies in these practices. Papers may also focus on design of such
technologies or on historical accounts of use. With design is meant
processes, methods, and outcoming artefacts. ECSCW solicits reports
reflecting a rich variety of quantitative and qualitative research
methods, including field studies and participatory approaches.
The conference is soliciting high quality contributions that report:
- novel techniques and technologies relevant to CSCW,
- empirical studies of work that contribute to the design space of CSCW,
- enhancement of the conceptual foundations of CSCW.
In particular, the conference welcomes contributions that focus on:
- Empirical studies of collaboration in settings ranging from work to
civic engagement and everyday life.
- Comparative analyses of empirical studies that contribute to a deeper
understanding of domain specific or more general CSCW principles.
- Empirical studies on the appropriation of innovative technologies.
- Innovative technologies, applications, or functionality in support of
- Investigations into the usage and design of coordination artifacts as
well as webs of technology (infrastructures).
- New technology-enabled forms of organization and virtual organizing.
- Collaboratories, distributed scientific work, and CSCW aspects of
- Studies dealing with the technology induced reshaping of the division
of labor between customers and producers and within the supply chain,
e.g. prosuming phenomena.
- Studies of intercultural cooperation, such as in globally engaged
enterprises, multinational organizations, international NGOs, networks
of the civil society, and off-shoring relationships.
- Studies on collaborative work in emergent and developing economies.
- Conception, construction and use of CSCW technologies in complex and
demanding settings, like manufacturing, software engineering,
healthcare, care giving, security, and control systems.
- Ubiquitous and mobile computing in collaborative settings: empirical
research of use, studies of integration with other CSCW technologies and
- Integration of CSCW technologies with existing infrastructures, such
as information systems, production systems, decision support systems,
and knowledge management systems.
- Conception, construction, and use of innovative interaction modes for
CSCW applications, e.g. interfaces and supportive functionalities for
- Architectures supporting CSCW technologies with quality requirements,
such as flexibility, tailorability, and adaptability.
- Innovative use of social media to support collective action.
- Studies of collaboration across time, including knowledge management
and expertise sharing.
All contributions will be rigorously evaluated in terms of their
novelty, significance, quality, and contribution to the discipline.
Accepted research papers and notes will be included in the conference
proceedings published by Springer and freely available at the ECSCW
website at: www.ecscw.org. They will also be indexed in and available
through the ACM digital library.
ECSCW 2011 requires that submissions have not been published previously
