Call for Papers

GROUP 2005
International Conference on Supporting Group Work

November 6-9, 2005
Sanibel Island, FL USA


GROUP '05 is interested in topics related to computer-based systems that
have an impact on groups, organizations and social networks.  A strong
emphasis of GROUP '05 is the integration of multiple computer-based tools
and technologies.  Relevant issues include the design, implementation,
deployment, evaluation, research methodologies, and impact of these systems.
GROUP'05 is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery Executive
Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Press Conference
Proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

GROUP '05 attempts to integrate two themes of research: the organizational
and behavioral issues and the modeling and implementation issues associated
with collaborative activity.  It brings together researchers and
practitioners from different areas working on the development, introduction,
management, deployment, and analysis of computer-based collaborative
systems.  We particularly encourage submissions and participation from
industry.  Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

Social Impact Issues:
o   Experiences with the computing systems applications
     that support group or organizational processes
o   New forms of education, entertainment and social
     relations based on cooperation technologies
o   Understanding and modeling of groups or organizations
o   Strategies and solutions for the combination or
     integration of the emerging Internet businesses
o   Social aspects of globally distributed computing
     and new cooperative work technologies
o   Digital communities: experiences and evaluation
o   Impacts of wireless, mobile and wearable
     technologies on cooperative work
o   Field-based analyses of work, entertainment, and
     domestic environments
o   Ethnographic descriptions of new or novel domains,
     including new industries and entertainment worlds
o   Social aspects of medical or bio- informatics.
o   Privacy and security
o   New forms of Internet behavior, including peer-to-
     peer, blogs, and social network-based systems
o   Collaboratories and scientific work
o   Organizational re-use of information

Technical Implementation Issues:
o   Organizational computing systems and infrastructure
o   New groupware solutions and technologies
o   Computer-supported collaboration and negotiation
o   Coordination and workflow technology
o   Cooperative knowledge management, organizational
     learning and organizational memory
o   Cooperative technologies for education,
     entertainment and social life
o   Innovative forms of human-computer interaction
     for cooperative technologies

Submission categories

Paper submission on original research or industrial papers on any of the
conference topics are invited.  Research papers should make clear the novel
aspects of work they present, and their contribution to the development of
system for supporting groups, organizations or social networks.  Industrial
papers should describe technical or key business issues in applying group
technology.  Further information will be soon available concerning on-line

Posters are a new submission category this year. Posters are an opportunity
to present late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not
suitable for a full or short paper, innovative ideas not yet validated
through user studies, student research, and other research best presented in
this open format. Posters will be displayed at a special session in the
conference when poster authors will be available to discuss their work.

Short Papers
Short papers are also a new submission category this year. The aim of short
papers is to provide a forum to present new, original and unpublished work
that does not fit into the traditional long paper format. Short paper topics
can present any research relevant to the conference theme. They will be four
pages in length, and will be more concise and focused than long papers.

Workshops provide an informal and focused environment for the information
exchange and discussion of Group related topics. A workshop proposal should
contain a title, aim and objective, intended participants and workshop
description. It should also specify the maximum number of participants, the
planned duration (half-day/full-day) and the audio/visual equipment needed.

The tutorial program will offer the opportunity to learn about concepts,
methods, systems, and techniques for specific aspects of supporting group
work. Experts on any field of the conference scope are encouraged to submit
a tutorial proposal.  The proposal should contain a title, aim and
objectives, content outline, intended audience and description of the
qualification and expertise of the instructors.  In addition it should also
specify the maximum number of participants, the planned duration (half-day,
full-day) and the audio/visual equipment needed.

More detailed information about paper format and electronic submission can
be found at the conference web site:

All submissions must arrive:    May 16, 2005 at 2400 EST
