CSCL 2017: Preliminary Call for Papers

The 12th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative
June 18-21, 2017
Drexel University & The University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA

Conference theme: Making a Difference — Prioritizing Equity and Access in

Computer Supported Collaborative Learning is a premier conference of the
International Society of the Learning Sciences that focuses on the study of
social learning processes with and without technology as well as the
development and evaluation of tools to enhance or improve collective
thinking and learning. The conference is a major international event
bringing together researchers with a wide variety of backgrounds and
research interests including educational technology, design, HCI,
information sciences, educational psychology, museum research, library
science, curriculum and instruction, psychology, computer science,
cognitive science, and many more. We welcome high quality conceptual,
empirical, and theoretical contributions.

This year's conference theme focuses on the need to consider issues such as
equity, access, and inclusion in the design, implementation, and deployment
of computer-supported learning environments. CSCL 2017 will prioritize
keynote speakers, workshops and papers that champion research and tools
focused on equity and access relative to CSCL. Hosted by a diverse
leadership team in the Learning Sciences, the conference will highlight
work that discusses ways to broaden the CSCL pipeline, promotes and/or
celebrates out of the box thinking, or that brings a wide range of
viewpoints or voices to CSCL topics or tools.

We are currently seeking submissions for the following:

•          Full Papers (8 pages): Full papers are for mature work,
requiring lengthy explanations of the conceptual background, methodology
and data and analysis. Full paper submissions should state: (a) the major
issue(s) addressed, (b) potential significance of the work, (c) the
theoretical and methodological approach(es) pursued, (d) major findings,
conclusions, implications, and (e) relevant scholarly references.

•          Short Papers (4 pages): Short papers are for work that makes
significant contributions, but that is still in progress, of smaller scale,
or that can be reported briefly. Otherwise, the same criteria apply as
listed for full papers above.

•          Posters (2 pages): Posters are for work in early stages and for
novel and promising ideas. The two page abstract should identify the aspect
of the work that will likely lead to productive discussions with conference
participants in a poster session, including figures exemplifying the visual
support to be provided for these discussions in the poster.

•          Symposia (8 pages): Symposia are for conveying larger ideas or
results about a specific issue. Discussion among members of the symposium
and with the audience should be moderated to focus on certain positions or
controversies. We expect symposia to address large issues of interest to
CSCL, particularly those related to this year's conference theme.

Papers, Posters, and Symposia: November 4, 2016
Demos, Pre-Conference Workshops, and Tutorials: to be announced
Early and Mid-Career Workshops + Doctoral Consortium: to be announced
