Dear chi-announce list members,

Please find below the 3rd call for participation for CSCW 2013, covering 
several venues which are super cool yet less work than a paper.

CSCW 2013 publicity co-chairs

The 16th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and 
Social Computing (CSCW 2013) will be held February 23-27 in San Antonio, 
Texas, USA. CSCW is the premier venue for research in the design and use 
of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and 

Summer is coming to an end, and CSCW deadlines for several venues are 
fast approaching!

   * Workshops
   * Demos
   * Videos
   * Interactive posters
   * Panels
   * Doctoral colloquium
   * Student volunteers

Details of these venues and important dates follow.

Conference co-chairs:
   Amy Bruckman, Georgia Tech
   Scott Counts, Microsoft Research

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. We have accepted an exciting 
slate of workshops for this year's conference:

   W1: The 13th International Workshop on Collaborative Editing Systems
   W2: Trust in Virtual Teams: Theory and Tools
   W3: Beyond Formality: Informal Communication in Health Practices
   W4: CrowdCamp 2013: Rapidly Iterating Crowd Ideas
   W5: Better safe than sorry: Collaboration in Safety-Critical Environments
   W6: Social Capital and Entrepreneurship in CSCW
   W7: Workshop on Social Media Question Asking
   W8: Collaborative Information Seeking: Consolidating the Past, 
Creating the Future
   W9: Measuring Networked Social Privacy: Qualitative & Quantitative 
   W10: CSCW and education: Viewing education as a site of work practice

More information, including deadlines for position papers and other 
workshop-related submissions, will be posted by the organizers at the 
link above as it becomes available.

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

Deadline: November 2, 2012, 5PM PDT

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

Deadline: October 23, 2012, 5:00 PM PDT

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

Deadline: November 2, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT

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, Microsoft

Deadline: November 2, 2012

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.

Panels co-chairs:
   Darren Gergle, Northwestern University
   Siân Lindley, Microsoft Research

Deadline: November 2, 2012, 5:00 p.m. PDT

The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students meet and 
discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced CSCW 
researchers and practitioners. We welcome applicants from a broad range 
of disciplines and approaches that inform CSCW, including anthropology, 
sociology, computer science, cognitive science, organizational studies, 
and related fields. We are particularly interested in applications from 
institutions and groups that have not traditionally been 
well-represented at past CSCW conferences.

Doctoral Colloquium Co-Chairs:
   Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Vienna University of Technology
   David McDonald, University of Washington

Student volunteers are essential to the success of the CSCW conference. 
While the volunteer duties are not always glamorous, they do provide a 
unique opportunity to interact closely with CSCW contributors, 
attendees, and other student volunteers. Volunteering provides a 
structured, cordial environment for students in various stages of their 
research career to become part of the CSCW community. Students often 
report that the 'social networks' they build from these meetings are the 
greatest benefit of being a volunteer.

Deadlines will be posted at the above link shortly.

Student Volunteers Co-Chairs

   Jenn Marlow, Carnegie Mellon University
