                    Call for Participation

The CSCW Conference is an ideal venue for presenting research and
development achievements in the design, introduction, and use of
technology that affect groups, organizations communities and societies.
Although work is an important area of focus for the conference - the
conference has traditionally focused on such topics as the use of email,
chat, voicemail and videoconferencing in supporting people's work
activities and working relationships - technology is increasingly
supporting a wide range of recreational and social activities. As
consumer markets continue to expand, more and more people are able to
connect online and we are moving toward a Computer Supported Cooperative
World. Appropriate topic areas for CSCW 2002 therefore include all
contexts in which technology is used to mediate communication,
coordination, cooperation and even competition among people, including
entertainment, games, art, music and the remote sharing of intimate

Given its broad scope, CSCW is a multi-disciplinary conference, and
participation of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and
perspectives is strongly encouraged. We welcome submissions from
researchers and practitioners in all sectors, including academia,
industry and government.

CSCW has consistently been at the leading edge of thinking about the
role of coordination and communication technologies in our lives. With
your help, CSCW 2002 will play an important role in continuing this
tradition. Come and help us make CSCW a stimulating and exciting event.

Topics of interest include but  are not restricted to the following:

* Innovations and experiences with Intranets, the Internet, WWW

* Innovative installations: CSCW and the arts

* Innovative technologies and architectures to support group activity,
awareness and telepresence

* Social and organizational effects of introducing technologies

* Theoretical aspects of coordination and communication

* Methodologies and tools for design and analysis of collaborative

* Ethnographic and case studies of work practice

* Working with and through collections of heterogeneous technologies

* Emerging issues for global systems

The following are brief descriptions of the CSCW 2002 participation
categories; prospective participants should visit our web site
( to learn more about these categories.

STUDENT VOLUNTEERS:  Students are invited to apply to volunteer at CSCW
2002. In exchange for 20 hours of volunteer work, students will receive
complimentary conference registration and an invitation to the
conference reception.  The number of student volunteer positions will be
limited. Interested students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate
program for the 2001-2002 school year should apply using the form on the
conference website as soon as possible.

RESEARCH PAPERS:  Papers should present original, unpublished research
on technological mediation of activities affecting groups of people.
Potential areas of interest include theory, methodology, empirical
investigations, architectures, prototypes and experiences related to the
development, deployment and use of computer systems supporting all
aspects of shared activities, including, but not limited to, activities
at work, in the home, in education, and the arts. Papers should be no
longer than 10 pages, including the abstract, all figures and

VIDEOS: Videos are a great way to present work that involves dynamic
interaction, ranging from demonstrations of new systems to complex
aspects of group communication and work practice. Potential topics
include, but are not limited to demonstrations of innovative research
prototypes; demonstrations (but not marketing) of innovative aspects of
commercial systems; studies of work practice that have implications for
CSCW; retrospective collections of significant CSCW fields of work; and
visions of future technologies.

INTERACTIVE  POSTERS: Interactive Posters provide an opportunity for
researchers to present work in a more open format where authors interact
directly with groups of conference attendees. We especially encourage
submission of late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not
suitable for a full paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through
user studies, student research, and other research best presented in
this open format. Interactive Poster submissions should include a poster
abstract of no longer than 2 pages, including all figures and

DEMONSTRATIONS: Demonstrations allow conference participants to view
novel or noteworthy CSCW systems in action, discuss the systems with
those who created them, and perhaps to try them out. Appropriate
demonstrations include applications, technologies, research prototypes
and products. This 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 differentiating and
novel contributions of the system. Demo proposals should be a maximum of
4 pages.

PANELS: Panels should examine innovative, provocative, controversial, or
late-breaking issues. The best panels are often structured as a debate
with an opportunity for audience participation. We also welcome novel
suggestions of topics or formats such as impromptu design by a panel or
comparative empirical analyses by expert panelists who have divergent
perspectives. We are open to innovative formats including live
demonstrations and/or technology competitions. Panel proposals should be
no longer than 4 pages.

TUTORIALS: Tutorials should be designed to give participants the
opportunity to learn about CSCW concepts and techniques in intensive
sessions. Proposals are solicited for half-day and full day tutorials.
Tutorial proposals should be no longer than 5 pages.

WORKSHOPS: Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss and explore
emerging areas of CSCW research with a group of like-minded researchers
and practitioners. Workshops may focus on any aspect of CSCW theory or
practice, established concerns or new ideas. The goal of the workshop is
to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities,
to learn from each other and to envision future directions. Workshops
are typically run for a full day.

DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM:  This Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students
can 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 sociology, computer science, cognitive science, and related
fields. Applicants should be beyond the proposal stage and into their
dissertation research. The Colloquium committee will select
approximately 10 participants who will be expected to give a short,
informal presentation of their work during the Colloquium, to be
followed by a discussion. Submissions should be no longer than 3 pages.

SUBMISSIONS:  CSCW 2002 requires online submission. Please see the CSCW
2002 website ( for information about online
submission information. All submissions should be formatted according to
the standard ACM SIGCHI publication guidelines.
