Organizational Change due to the appropriation of Information Technologies
Understanding and modelling of groups or organizations
Strategies and solutions for the integration of emerging Internet
New computer-enabled forms of organization
Distributed work in outsourcing and off-shoring settings
Digital communities: experiences and evaluation
Collaboratories and distributed scientific work
Organizational re-use of information
Appropriation processes and technical support
Impacts of wireless, mobile and wearable technologies on cooperative work
New forms of Internet behavior, including peer-to-peer, blogs, and social
New forms of education, entertainment and social relations based on
Social aspects of globally distributed computing and new cooperative work
Technical and Implementation Issues:
Organizational computing systems and infrastructure
Innovative groupware solutions and technologies
Coordination and workflow technology
Collaborative components in standard IT systems, such as ERP or CAD
Communityware and Social Software
Cooperative knowledge management, organizational learning and
Tailorability and End User Developments
Highly flexible architectures, such as service- and component-based systms
Innovative forms of human-computer interaction for cooperative
Papers should present original, unpublished research on technological
mediation of activities affecting groups, organizations, and social
networks. (See Guide to Successful Paper Submissions)
Theory, methodology, systems and concept papers should present new
theories, methodologies, empirical results, architectures, prototype
systems, or design concepts that stimulate new ways of thinking about,
studying or supporting, shared activities. Application and practice papers
should describe experiences with systems that support shared activities.
All papers should make the case, in the paper itself, for how the work
relates to previous research or experience and what aspects of the work
are new. Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality,
significance of the contribution to the field, quality of research,
quality of writing, and contribution to conference program diversity.
Papers should be no longer than 10 pages, including the abstract, all
figures and references, and should be formatted according to the ACM SIG
NOTES: May 28th is the deadline for submitting 4 page notes. Please see
the Group 2007 website for more details.
In 2007 GROUP will introduce a new submission category: GROUP Notes are
intended to increase the diversity of the technical program by encouraging
new types of submissions. Notes aim to bring research into the GROUP and
CSCW community that is relevant and original, but that might not fit well
within the traditional long papers program.
Like long papers, Notes should present original, unpublished research on
technological mediation of activities affecting groups of people. However,
Notes are designed to be more succinct and focused than long papers. With
this new category we further want to encourage submissions from industry
to report on recent developments or current research and development issue
that industry wants to discuss with the academic community. Examples of
potential topics are:
A new implementation approach that addresses a significant technical issue
in collaboration systems.
Current research and development issues from an industrial perspective
that can stimulate the discussion between academics and industry.
The design of a new interaction technique that supports groups.
A new methodology for studying collaborative systems that the authors
believe the community should consider and discuss.
A follow-up paper based on a previously published paper.
Notes are not expected to include an extensive discussion of related work.
However, Notes should be situated with respect to closely related work.
Workshops: May 28th is the deadline for submitting 4 page proposal. Please
see the Group 2007 website for more details.
A workshop proposal should not exceed 4 pages. The proposal must contain a
title, goals, and plan for the workshop. The proposal should also discuss
the organizers' backgrounds, a profile of participants sought, how the
workshop will be advertised, the maximum number of participants, the
planned duration (half-day/full-day) and the audio/visual equipment
