The Tenth European Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work  
(ECSCW) will take place in Limerick, Ireland, 24-28 September 2007.

The conference is soliciting high quality contributions for a single- 
track paper program. 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. In particular, the conference welcomes:

Papers reporting novel techniques and technologies relevant to CSCW;
Empirical studies of work that contribute to the design space of CSCW;
And theoretical papers that enhance the conceptual foundations of CSCW.
All papers will be evaluated on their novelty, significance, quality,  
and contribution to the field. Accepted papers will be included in  
the conference proceedings published by Springer, will be indexed in  
digital libraries, and will be made freely available on the web  

ECSCW 2007 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.

Papers must be formatted in strict accordance with the ECSCW  
formatting instructions (see author kit and paper templates available  
at the conference website) and must be submitted in PDF format.  
Papers should be up to 20 pages in length; however, it is important  
that their length is appropriate for their content. Papers 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. However, relevant references  
to an author's previous research should not be suppressed, if they  
are required for reviewers to understand and evaluate the paper's  

All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Details will be  
available shortly at the ECSCW 2007 website:

Important dates

23 March 2007 Paper submissions due (electronic submission)
18th May 2007 Accept/reject notification
8th June 2007 Finished papers (camera-ready electronic submission)
Workshops and/or masterclasses

These will take place on 22-23 September 2007. Workshops are designed  
to offer an informal environment for focused group discussion and  
learning. Workshops may be for half-day or full day sessions. Master  
classes will offer a small number of participants the opportunity to  
learn about specific CSCW concepts, methods and techniques from  
recognised experts.
Chair: Mark Rouncefield, Lancaster University

Submissions deadline: 20 April 2007

Demos & Videos

Demonstrations and videos should illustrate original collaborative  
systems, experiences or applications. Authors who are submitting  
papers are also encouraged to consider submitting demonstrations and  
videos that show their work. Accepted submissions will be selected  
based on their technical content, interest and relevance to the ECSCW  
community. Descriptions of accepted demonstrations and videos will be  
included in the Conference Supplement. Videos will be played during  
the conference and be made available to participants on a DVD.  
Demonstration software might also be distributed that way. (NOTE:  
Local technical support for live demonstrations will be limited, so  
demonstrations need to be self-supporting.)
Chair: Annette Aboulafia, University of Limerick

Submissions deadline: 20 April 2007


ECSCW 2006 will include a poster category for late-breaking and  
preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a full paper,  
innovative ideas not yet validated through full user studies, early  
student research, and other research best presented in an interactive  
forum. Posters will be on display for the duration of the conference.

Furthermore, posters will have advertised mini-sessions during the  
breaks where the focus will be on a given list of poster  
presentations. During the scheduled timeslot, one of the authors is  
expected to be at the poster for informal discussions with conference  

Poster abstracts will be published in a Conference Supplement that  
will be circulated to attendees at registration.Abstracts will not be  
incorporated into the main ECSCW 2006 Conference Proceedings.

Chair: David Pinelle, University of Nevada Las Vegas

Submission deadline: 29 May 2007
Doctoral Colloquium

Doctoral Colloquium offers PhD students in CSCW the opportunity to  
present and discuss their work with each other as well as a number of  
experienced CSCW researchers. Students from all the CSCW related  
disciplines are encouraged to apply, although numbers will be limited.
Chair: Alex Taylor, Microsoft UK and Susanne Bødker, University of  

Submission deadline: 20 April 2007


Panel proposals will be accepted on an ad hoc basis, subject to the  
approval of the Programme chairs.
