ECSCW 2019 2nd Call for Papers
CSCW focuses on enhancing our understanding the practices of cooperative
work and on exploring and designing CSCW systems. For 30 years, the ECSCW
conference has served as a major international venue for defining and
further developing the agenda for CSCW research. The conference has a
longstanding interest in empirical, conceptual, theoretical and technical
contributions and has a tradition of innovation and inclusiveness.
ECSCW 2019 will take place in Salzburg, Austria, from 8-12 June 2019 (see
ECSCW addresses themes which include, but are not limited to:
Empirical investigations of collaborative practices. Findings,
guidelines, and/or studies related to communication, collaboration,
and social technologies, practices, or use.
System design. How can we support cooperative work in increasingly
complex, networked settings? Hardware, architectures,
infrastructures, interaction design, technical foundations,
algorithms, and/or toolkits that enable the building of new social
and collaborative systems and experiences.
Methodologies and tools. Methods for investigating human practices:
the nature of ethnography and the role of other innovative methods
and tools in building systems or studying their use.
Theories. Critical analysis or theory with clear relevance to study
or design of collaborative settings and systems.
Domain-specific social and collaborative applications. Including
applications to digital civics, grassroots movements, healthcare,
transportation, ICT4D, sustainability, education, accessibility,
global collaboration, or other domains.
Ethics and policy implications. Analysis of the implications of
socio-technical systems, the values that inform them, and the
algorithms that shape them.
Crossing boundaries. Studies, prototypes, or other investigations
that explore interactions across disciplines, distance, languages,
generations, and cultures, to help better understand how to transcend
social, temporal, and/or spatial boundaries.
Design fictions. Discussions and extrapolations of work-practices and
technologies, which make a contribution to the core topics of ECSCW.
For examples of design fictions from other conferences, please see

ECSCW is a single-track conference that contributes to developing an
interdisciplinary and global community, sponsored by EUSSET, the European
Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (https://www.eusset.eu/). The
conference format facilitates critical discussion across disciplinary and
national borders in the field. An overview of earlier ECSCW conferences
(and proceedings) is available at http://www.ecscw.org/
Submitted papers documenting original, rich, and in-depth contributions to
CSCW will follow a journal-level review process. Accepted submissions will
be published in Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW): The Journal of
Collaborative Computing and Work Practices, a journal with a high impact
factor of 1.784.
Upon acceptance of the paper for the journal, authors are requested to
present their work at the conference.
26.10.2018: paper submission
29.03.2019: final notification
Authors are encouraged to submit earlier than the deadline. Early
submissions will allow for more time for the Revise & Resubmit phase and
will generally result into earlier publication of the accepted manuscript
in the Journal. Please note that after submitting their articles for
production, authors might be required to make additional revisions,
according to the publication standards of the Journal.
The papers with a length between 10,000 and 15,000 words (excluding
references) may be submitted at the link:

Paper submissions should be formatted following the CSCW Journal
Instructions to Authors (https://www.springer.com/computer/journal/10606).
Please keep in mind that, submissions will be reviewed as journal
contributions and that, as per Journal of CSCW policy, the papers review
process will be single-blind.
