:: ECSCW 2009 ::

First Call for Participation
The 11th European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work  
(ECSCW)
September 7-11, 2009, Vienna, Austria
http://www.ecscw09.org

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

The conference is soliciting high quality contributions that report
* novel techniques and technologies relevant to CSCW,
* empirical studies of work that contribute to the design space of CSCW,
* enhancement of the conceptual foundations of CSCW.

In particular, the conference welcomes contributions that focus on:
* Comparative analyses of empirical investigations that contribute to  
a deeper
understanding of single application domains of CSCW or aspects of CSCW,
which cross different domains
* New computer-enabled forms of organisation
* Collaboratories and distributed scientific work, including papers,  
which reflect
on CSCW aspects of e-science
* The conception, construction and use of CSCW technologies in complex  
and
demanding settings, like manufacturing, healthcare, security, control  
systems,
etc.
* The implications of new interaction technologies (pervasive,  
ubiquitous,
handheld ...) for CSCW: empirical research of use, studies of  
integration with
other CSCW technologies and applications
* The integration of CSCW technologies with other technologies used to  
support
organisations, such as information systems, production systems,  
decision support
systems, knowledge management systems, etc.
* The conception, construction and use of innovative interaction modes  
for CSCW
applications, e.g. interfaces and supportive functionalities,  
including diverse
users, such as impaired users
* Architectures supporting CSCW technologies with quality  
requirements, such as
flexibility, tailorability, adaptability, etc.

All contributions will be evaluated in terms of their novelty,  
significance, quality and
enhancement to the field. Accepted contributions will be included in  
the conference
proceedings published by Springer and will be available at http://www.ecscw09.org 
.
They will also be indexed in and available through the ACM digital  
library.

ECSCW 2009 requires that submissions have not been published  
previously and that
papers submitted are not under simultaneous review for any other  
conference, journal
or other publication.

Please note that deadlines are firm to accommodate tight adjudication  
and publication
schedules.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

:: SUBMISSIONS

All contributions must be rendered anonymous to facilitate blind  
review, and authors
should take care throughout their paper that their own and their  
institution's
identity is not revealed. Relevant references to an author's previous  
research should
not be suppressed but rather should be made impersonally, if they are  
required for
reviewers to understand and evaluate the paper's contribution. All  
submissions will be
handled electronically: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecscw09


::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

:: RESEARCH PAPERS

There are two kinds of research paper contributions: full papers and  
short papers.
Both kinds of contributions must be formatted in strict accordance  
with the ECSCW
formatting instructions (see author kit and paper templates: http://www.ecscw09.org/author.html)
and must be submitted in PDF format.

FULL PAPERS
Full papers may be up to 20 pages in length. Full papers should  
present original
reports of substantive new work and make clear the novel aspects of  
the research
they present and its contribution to the development of CSCW theory  
and CSCW systems
design.

SHORT PAPERS
Short papers may be up to 8 pages in length, and should present  
substantial although
preliminary results of a research activity. They should clearly  
contain: the goals
and the current stage of the research plan, an indication about the  
original
contribution the research makes, preliminary achievements and  
indication of why they
warrant presentation at this stage. Selection will primarily be based  
on this kind of
information.

Chairs:
Ellen Balka, [log in to unmask], Simon Fraser University, Canada
Carla Simone, [log in to unmask], Universita' di Milano-Bicocca,

Submission Deadline: March 6, 2009

:: WORKSHOPS AND MASTER CLASSES

Workshops are designed to offer an informal environment for focused  
group discussion
and learning. Workshops may be for half-day or full day sessions.

Workshop proposals should consist of an abstract and a detailed  
proposal. The abstract
should be no more than 150 words. The body of the proposal should be  
no more than 3000
words, and should include a description of the theme(s) of the  
workshop, the workshop
activities and goals, the duration of the workshop (one or two full  
days), the
background of the organiser(s), the maximum number of participants,  
and the means of
recruiting and selecting participants. We encourage workshop  
organisers to create web-
based resources for their workshops so that advertising, submission  
and organisation
can be handled online.

Accepted workshops will need to provide a short description of the  
workshop for
publication on the conference web site containing the workshop title,  
names and
affiliations of organisers, 150-word abstract, workshop web site, and  
position
paper submission or other participation requirements.

Accepted workshops may optionally provide a 2-page Workshop Programme  
for printing in
the conference supplemental proceedings. The programme should contain  
the workshop
title, 150-word abstract, objectives, participant names and schedule.

Master classes will offer a small number of participants the  
opportunity to learn
about specific CSCW concepts, methods and techniques from recognised  
experts.

Master classes proposals should be no more than 3000 words, and should  
include a
description of the theme(s) of the master class, the background of the  
organiser(s) and
the maximum number of participants.

:: DEMOS AND VIDEOS

Live demonstrations and videos form an important part of the  
conference technical
programme. Demonstrations of both research prototypes and commercial  
products by
those directly involved in developing the systems are welcomed.

Demos and videos submissions should include an extended abstract of no  
longer than
2 pages, including all figures and references. It should state the  
contribution
