ACM International Conference on Intercultural 
Collaboration (previously International Workshop 
on Intercultural Collaboration) 
August 19-20 2010, Copenhagen, Denmark

Call for Papers and Other Submissions

This conference explores the nature of 
intercultural collaboration and ways to improve 
intercultural collaboration processes and 
outcomes. It is a continuation of the former 
International Workshop on Intercultural 
Collaboration (IWIC) series, with this being the 
third conference.

The conference incorporates both  socio-cultural 
and socio-technical perspectives, with the 
objective of creating multidisciplinary dialogue 
and progress in this important field. Topics 
include collaboration support (such as natural 
language processing, Web, and Internet 
technologies), social scientific analyses of 
intercultural interaction, and case studies that 
increase mutual understanding and learning in our 
multicultural world. Submissions will be 
considered for archival papers, to be published 
in the ACM Digital Library, and non-archival 
panels, demonstrations, and posters.  Examples of 
relevant topics include but are not limited to:

*   Conceptual frameworks, methods, and measures 
to study intercultural collaboration and/or 
*   Field studies of intercultural collaboration 
in global organizations and/or in local 
*   Intercultural issues in offshore / global businesses
*   Laboratory studies of intercultural collaboration
*   Cultural differences in collaboration styles and/or technology use
*   Case studies of intercultural collaboration
*   Computer supported intercultural collaboration
*   Internet, web, ubiquitous, and/or ambient 
technologies for intercultural collaboration and 
*   E-learning in multicultural environments
*   Frameworks for measurement of properties of intercultural communication
*   The role of language, language proficiency, 
and language resources in intercultural 
*   Multilingual communication and communication technologies
*   Interoperability of language resources
*   Usability of technologies, including language 
resources, for intercultural collaboration

The conference will feature several prominent 
invited speakers (to be announced).


Full papers are solicited on any aspect of 
intercultural collaboration. Papers can describe 
studies of intercultural communication and 
collaboration or present new technologies to 
assess and support intercultural interaction. 
All papers are expected to be suitable for a 
multidisciplinary audience and relevant to issues 
of intercultural collaboration.

Full papers will be published in the ACM Digital 
These papers should be no longer than ten 
two-columned pages. Papers should be formatted 
according to the ACM SIGCHI template and 
submitted in PDF format. Please see the SIGCHI 
author instruction page 
for more information and downloadable templates.

Papers should be submitted through the Precision 
Conference System 
Authors will need to create a free account and 
then upload a pdf version of their anonymized 
paper to the site.  

All full papers will be evaluated using a 
double-blind review process. Authors should omit 
their names and affiliations from the title area 
of the paper and conceal references to their own 
prior work by referring to it in the third person 
(e.g., authors should say "In an earlier study, 
Jones and Smith found ." instead of "In an 
earlier study, we found ."). Papers that have not 
been appropriately anonymized will be returned 
without review.

Panels, Demonstrations and Late-Breaking Papers

ICIC 2010 will also feature three categories of 
non-archived submissions: panels, demonstrations 
and late-breaking papers.

Panels, demonstrations and late-breaking papers 
will not be blind reviewed.  Authors should 
include their complete names and contact 
information at the top of their submitted PDF 

Panels: ICIC 2010 will feature a solicited panel 
and an invited panel. Individuals may submit 
proposals for the solicited panel.  A panel 
consists of three or four talks on a related 
theme in intercultural collaboration.  Panel 
submissions will not be archival, so panelists 
may discuss previously published work. 
Submissions should provide each panelist's 
background and contact information, as well as a 
brief statement of his or her position on the 
panel theme.  Submissions should be no longer 
than 3 pages in length using the ACM template 
(see above).
Panels should be submitted by email to 
icic2010-panels [at] 

Demonstrations: Individuals may submit proposals 
to present demonstrations of new technologies for 
intercultural collaboration.  Demonstration 
proposals should clearly describe the motivation 
for the tool and how it will be demonstrated at 
the workshop.   Demonstration descriptions will 
not be archival; therefore, demonstrations can 
include both previously published work and work 
that is not yet ready for publication. 
Submissions should be no longer than 3 pages in 
length using the ACM template (see above).
Demonstrations should be submitted by email to 
icic2010-demos [at] 

Late-Breaking Papers (Work in Progress):  
Individuals may submit late-breaking papers to 
present as posters during the workshop. 
Late-breaking papers will be published in the ACM 
Digital Library. Late-breaking papers should be 
no longer than 4 two columned pages in length, 
formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI template, 
and submitted in PDF format. Please see the 
SIGCHI author instruction page 
) for more information and downloadable templates.
Late-breaking papers should be submitted to 
icic2010-posters [at] 

Doctoral Workshop:  Graduate students interested 
in discussing their research with fellow students 
and distinguished faculty can apply to 
participate in the ICIC 2010 Doctoral Workshop, 
to be held on August 18th, 2010 (the day before 
the main conference begins).  Applications will 
be due April 15, 2010.  For submission details
