The Final Program for The *ACM 2012 Conference on Computer Supported 
Cooperative Work* has been posted online: Over 500 people have registered so far. 
The conference hotel (Hyatt Regency Bellevue) will continue offering the 
discounted hotel room rate until January 21 or whenever they run out of 
rooms, whichever comes first: The 
conference discounted late advance registration deadline is February 1, 
after which only full-price on-site registrations will be accepted. The 
conference will be held February 11-15 in Bellevue, Washington, USA 
(near Seattle), just over four weeks from today.

CSCW is a premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of 
technologies that affect groups, organizations, and communities. CSCW 
encompasses both the technical and social challenges encountered when 
supporting collaboration. The development and application of new 
technologies continues to enable new ways of working together and 
coordinating activities. Although work is an area of focus, CSCW 
embraces research and technologies supporting a wide range of 
recreational and social activities using a diverse range of devices. The 
conference brings together top researchers and practitioners from 
academia and industry who are interested in both technical and social 
aspects of collaboration.
