Dear colleagues,

please keep in mind that for RESEARCH PAPERS the deadline for titles & abstracts will be tomorrow, June 23rd, 2017, by 23:59 Hawaiian time (strict deadline).

The final paper submission deadline for RESEARCH PAPERS and DESIGN FICTIONS has been slightly extended due to several requests. New final paper submission deadline: Monday, July 3rd, 2017, by 23:59 Hawaiian time.

Call for Submissions

GROUP 2018

ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work

January 7-10, 2018, Sanibel Island, Florida, USA

For over 25 years, the ACM International Conference on Supporting GroupWork (GROUP) has been a premier venue for research on Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Human Computer Interaction, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning and Socio-Technical Studies. The conference integrates work in social science, computer science, engineering, design, values, and other diverse topics related to group work, broadly conceptualized. Group 2018 continues the tradition of being truly international and interdisciplinary in both organizational structure as well as participants.

Key goals for the program are to encourage and facilitate researchers within CSCW and HCI to interact across disciplinary boundaries. We encourage high-level research contributions from interdisciplinary groups to present work that might be difficult to place within one simple category. We are open to diverse and innovative research methods, and to contributions across broad areas such as systems, society, participation, critique, collaboration, and human interaction. GROUP 2018 in particular would like to encourage systems designers, builders, and researchers from industry, academia, government and other interested groups to participate. Participation at GROUP takes many different forms. In 2018, we will continue two new submissions categories that were introduced in 2016. First, GROUP 2018 will again offer the opportunity to authors of newly published papers from the Journal of CSCW ( to present their papers in the conference. Second, the submission category “Design Fictions” will be maintained.

Submissions to the conference are welcome in the form of:

•        Research Papers (both short and long).  This venue gives the occasion to present and interact with the audience. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and ACM Digital Library. Please use the ACM SIGCHI format for submissions. We invite archival submissions in the form of either full Papers or shorter contributions (Notes). A Note is a brief report of a more limited, but definitive, outcome or theoretical development. There is no page limit for Papers or Notes, although clear rationale should be given for Papers that exceed 10 pages or for Notes that exceed 4 pages. Research Paper submissions must be completed online at

 •        Working Papers (WP) are contributions in which the authors are working towards an archival journal submission and would like to discuss their work with their colleagues at GROUP. Our goal is to broaden the conversations at GROUP, with a format that may appeal to colleagues whose primary publications are in journals, rather than conference papers. WPs will not be published in the conference proceedings, but will be distributed in a paper conference supplement at the GROUP conference for the attendees only. Therefore, you are free to seek formal publication of a draft journal submission that appears in a WP. The WP review process will be *lightweight*, without any revisions asked to the authors, to expand the GROUPcommunity and discussions. Please send submissions directly to co-chairs at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

 •        Design Fictions – Fictive Futures. Exploring Future Research Agendas. We seek submissions that imagine possible futures for research on the relationships between computers and people. Submissions will include two portions: a fictional document related to the conduct of research and an author statement about the document. The fiction document could be an extended abstract, a call for papers, an excerpt from API documentation, a book review, a study protocol for IRB review, or any other relevant type. The author statement should connect that document to current events, cite ongoing research in the field, or otherwise extrapolate how the envisioned future might arise from our given present. This statement will be especially important for abstracts (which are too short to explain their rationale), API documentations (which typically do not provide a historical rationale), and other documents that on their own may be exceptionally short and/or vague. Because Design Fictions are archival contributions, we recommend a minimum length of 3 pages, and as many as 10 pages. Please use the ACM SIGCHI Format for submissions. The reviewing process will be the same as the general track, and Design Fiction papers or notes will be included in the proceedings. Design Fiction submissions must be completed online at

•        Posters and demos. Posters and demos are an opportunity to present late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a Paper or Note submission, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies, student research in early phases, and other research best presented in this open format. Posters and demos will be displayed at a special session in the conference when poster and demo authors will be available to discuss their work. Poster submissions should include an extended abstract no longer than 4 pages, including all figures and references, in ACM SIGCHI Format (available here<>). In addition, submissions should also include a separate Tabloid (A3 or 11 x 17 inches) sized draft of the poster for review purposes. Both the extended abstract and the poster draft should include author names (these are not anonymous submissions). Please send submissions directly to co-chairs at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

 •        Workshops. Workshops provide an informal and focused environment for the information exchange and discussion ofGroup related topics. We offer half or full day workshop venues. Proposals should include an abstract (max 150 words), a title, description of workshop theme, aim, goals, activities and potential outcomes. It should also specify audio/visual equipment needed, maximum number of participants, the duration of the workshop (half or full day) and the names and backgrounds of the organizer(s). Please submit a maximum of four pages, using the ACM SIGCHI format<> for submissions. We encourage topics suitable for developing new ideas and deep discussions. Please send submissions directly to co-chairs at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

•        Doctoral Colloquium. The Doctoral Colloquium provides a forum for sharing ongoing Ph.D. projects of participants with other advanced Ph.D. students and distinguished faculty for mentoring and feedback. Space is limited, so an application of up to four pages is required, in the ACM standard format<>. Please contact the workshop co-chairs at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Accepted research papers, notes, Design Fictions, posters, and doctoral colloquium extended abstracts are published in the ACM Press Conference Proceedings and in the ACM digital Library. Accepted Workshop proposals will be published in a paper-based supplement.

Conference Topics
