Quick reminder that the deadline for CSCW papers is less than three 
weeks away!

Information on other contribution types including workshops, videos, 
demos, posters, and panel submissions have also been updated on the site 
and in the CfP below.


16th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social 
San Antonio, TX, Feb 23-27th

CSCW is an international and interdisciplinary conference focused on how 
technology intersects with social practices. By bringing together top 
researchers and practitioners from academia and industry in the area of 
social computing, CSCW addresses both the technical and social 
challenges encountered when supporting collaboration.

CSCW invites a wide variety of contribution types. For complete 
information about deadlines, submission procedures, and revision 
timelines, see calls for participation at

We invite submissions that detail existing practices or inform the 
design or deployment of systems. The scope of CSCW includes, but is not 
limited to, social computing, technologically-enabled or enhanced 
communication, collaboration, information sharing, and coordination. It 
includes socio-technical activities at work, in the home, in education, 
in healthcare, in the arts, for socializing and for entertainment. To 
support diverse and high-quality contributions, CSCW employs a two-phase 
review process and does not impose an arbitrary length limit on papers 
submissions. Please see the conference website for details about the 
review process and aligning paper contribution and length.

Papers co-chairs: Loren Terveen, University of Minnesota & Cliff Lampe,

Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss and explore emerging areas 
of CSCW research with a group of like-minded researchers and 
practitioners from industry and academia. Workshops may focus on any 
aspect of CSCW theory or practice, established concerns or new ideas; 
however, radical new ideas expected to draw a sufficient number of 
participants are very much encouraged! The goal of a workshop is to 
share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to 
learn from each other and to envision future directions.

Workshops co-chairs: Jeremy Birnholtz, Cornell University & Andy 
Crabtree, University of Nottingham

The CSCW Videos Program provides researchers, designers, and 
practitioners with opportunities to present their cutting-edge work in 
an interactive fashion in front of an expert audience. Videos are 
ideally suited to demonstrate the practical application of research 
results and the functionality of CSCW systems, visualize the outcome of 
research and development projects, or describe inspiring visions of 
future systems that are grounded in today′s reality. The Videos Program 
provides a venue to present work that involves dynamic interaction, 
ranging from demonstrations of new systems to complex aspects of group 
communication and work practice.

Videos co-chairs: Sasa Junuzovic, Microsoft Research & Carman 
Neustaedter, Simon Fraser University

CSCW 2013 demonstrations present implementations of new CSCW systems and 
concepts. The peer-reviewed demonstrations allow conference participants 
to view novel and noteworthy CSCW systems in action, discuss the systems 
with those who created them, and try them out. Appropriate 
demonstrations include applications, technologies, and research 
prototypes, and may showcase work that has been or is being published at 
CSCW or elsewhere. Demonstrations can also serve to showcase novel 
commercial products not previously described in the research literature. 
Demonstrations should be interactive and provide attendees a hands-on 
experience. The demo forum is not an opportunity for marketing or sales 
presentations. Presenters must have been directly involved with the 
development of the system and be able to explain the unique and novel 
contributions of the system.

Demos co-chairs: Dan Cosley, Cornell University & Travis Kriplean, 
University of Washington

CSCW 2013 will include an interactive poster category for late-breaking 
and preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a full or 
short paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies, 
early student research, and other research best presented in an 
interactive forum. Posters will be presented in a special Poster Session 
where researchers will interact directly with conference attendees. The 
posters will remain up throughout the remainder of the conference.

Posters co-chairs: Gary Hsieh, Michigan State University & Chen Zhao,

Panels are a great way to generate debate and raise new and interesting 
issues at CSCW. With panels we want to provide a forum for discussing 
provocative, controversial, innovative, emerging, boundary-spanning and 
boundary-breaking issues. While paper sessions provide detailed 
discussions of work recently completed, panels provide an opportunity to 
explore what is on the horizon — or what is already here but not 
adequately recognized, acknowledged or discussed.
