ECSCW 2017, The 15th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative

Sheffield (UK), August 28 ­ - September 01 2017

The 15th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (ECSCW)
will be held August 28 to September 1, 2017 in Sheffield, UK.

ECSCW is a series of international conferences on computer­-supported
cooperative work located in Europe and championed by EUSSET, the European
Society for Socially Embedded Technologies.

CSCW focuses on enhancing our understanding of the practices of cooperative
work and on exploring and designing CSCW systems. The ECSCW conference is
an important venue for defining and further developing the agenda for CSCW
research. The conference has a longstanding interest in empirical,
conceptual and theoretical contributions and has a tradition of
inclusiveness. ECSCW addresses themes which include but are not limited to:

   - Conceptualising practice in work and other activities, and the
   relationship between understanding practice and the design of computer
   artifacts: how can we understand work (the “W”)?
   - Cooperation and its characteristics (e.g., describing the particulars
   of articulation work and coordination mechanisms in a given setting): how
   can we understand cooperative work (the “CW”)?
   - Methods for investigating human practices: the nature of ethnography
   and the role of other innovative methods in CSCW.
   - Digital and other material artefacts in cooperative settings: how can
   we support cooperative work in increasingly complex, networked settings
   (the “CS”)?

The ECSCW conferences are single-track conferences that contribute to
developing an interdisciplinary ECSCW community. The conference format
facilitates critical discussion across disciplinary and national borders in
the field. An overview of earlier ECSCW conferences (and proceedings) is
available from .

While the key focus and topics of ECSCW remain the same, the conference is
changing. The biggest change for 2017 is in the types of submissions and
how those will be published.

   - *Papers (*between 10,000 and 15,000 words + references*):* In 2017,
   the conference is moving to a journal-level review process for the
   submission of papers documenting original, rich, and in-depth contributions
   to CSCW. Accepted submissions will be published in a special issue
of *Computer
   Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW): The Journal of Collaborative Computing
   and Work Practices* <>. Paper
   submissions will be reviewed by the ECSCW program committee (PC), while
   decisions will be made by the PC chairs (acting as guest editors) in
   collaboration with the Journal’s editors. The journal process will be
   compressed into a shorter amount of time than is typical for the Journal
   and will involve one full review cycle and a second,
   corrections-confirmation cycle. All papers judged to be of sufficiently
   high quality to be accepted will be published in the journal special issue.
   Papers will also benefit from the visibility of being presented and
   discussed at the conference. Paper submissions should be formatted
   following the CSCW Journal Instructions to Authors
   . *Please keep in mind that, as per CSCW Journal policy, the papers
   review process will be single-blind.*
   - Papers accepted for publication in the CSCW Journal are typeset
   (taking the digital document as input), however authors who want to use a
   template for preparing their submissions may want to use this template

   - *Exploratory Papers:* The goal of this new type of submission is to
   attract smaller, focused studies, works-in-progress, 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 PC in one round
   of evaluation (accepted or rejected). Accepted exploratory papers will be
   published in the ECSCW/EUSSET Digital Library as an edited collection with
   ISBN and DOIs (more information soon). Please follow the exploratory papers
   template. The template can be downloaded as RTF
    or MSWord.
   - Authors of exploratory papers will retain the copyright and will then
   be able to reuse their work in teaching, future publications, and other
   scholarly and professional activities, and to deposit their work in a
   university repository.

*Important dates*:


   - *Friday 18th November 2016: EXTENDED submission deadline*
   - Wednesday 18th January 2017: Notifications due to authors. Papers that
   are given a “major revisions” or “minor revisions” verdict are invited to
   resubmit an improved version.
   - Monday 13th March 2017: Resubmission deadline
   - Friday 7th April 2017: Final reviews due to authors. Papers that now
   qualify for acceptance are notified. Small additional edits may be
