ECSCW 2018 Call for Exploratory Papers (deadline: Friday, January 26, 2018)
We invite you to submit your excellent research to the ECSCW 2018
conference Exploratory Papers program. Exploratory papers are shorter,
peer-reviewed contributions that will be published in the ECSCW/EUSSET
Digital Library as an edited collection with ISBN and DOIs.
ECSCW 2018 is the 16th European Conference on Computer-Supported
Cooperative Work. It is the international venue on Practice-centred
computing and the Design of cooperation technologies. ECSCW 2018 will take
place in Nancy (France) on June 4-8, 2018.
ECSCW is a series of international conferences on computer-supported
cooperative work, located in Europe. The conference series is affiliated
with EUSSET – the European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (
http://www.eusset.eu). Starting with 2018, ECSCW is merging with COOP
conference and becomes an annual conference. The ECSCW conference is an
important venue for defining and further developing the agenda of CSCW
research with a focus on the in-depth understanding of human practices and
technologies. An overview of earlier ECSCW conferences (and proceedings) is
available in the EUSSET Digital Library at http://dl.eusset.eu .
More details on the 2018 conference are at http://ecscw2018.loria.fr.
Exploratory Papers were introduced at ECSCW 2017. We invite smaller,
focused studies, critical literature reviews, early results, and/or
provocative ideas that are not yet ready for a journal submission, but
could benefit from presentation and discussion within the ECSCW community.
While the length of exploratory papers is flexible, we expect that papers
will be no longer than 6,000 words (without references). With exploratory
papers, we aim at having lively sessions that will contribute to shaping
the future of practice-focused CSCW research.
Exploratory paper submissions will be reviewed by the ECSCW 2018 Program
Committee in one round of evaluation (accepted or rejected). Please follow
the exploratory papers template. The template can be downloaded in the
