CSCW Workshop for Authors in China
Tsinghua University, June 23 2010

The ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) will 
be held in Hangzhou China March 19-23, 2011.  CSCW is a premier venue 
for presenting research in the design and use of technologies that 
affect groups, organizations, and communities. Appropriate topic 
areas for CSCW include all contexts in which technology is used to 
mediate human activities such as communication, coordination, 
cooperation, competition, entertainment, education, medicine, art, 
music, and play. The technology may include: email, instant 
messaging, blogs, social media, shared workspaces, teleconferencing, 
games, co-located systems, robotics, and emerging technologies. More 
details can be found at

We are organizing a writing workshop on June 23rd, 2010 at Tsinghua 
University in Beijing, in order to inform authors in China about the 
CSCW conference and to provide guidance about writing papers for this 

Workshop organization: The workshop will have two parts.  In the 
morning, there will be a large group presentation in which we 
describe CSCW and other ACM conferences, the kinds of papers that can 
be submitted, and the general review process.  In the afternoon, 
there will be small group writing sessions with a native 
English-speaking mentor from the CSCW community. 

Participation: The morning session is open to anyone who would like 
to attend. The afternoon session is reserved for people who are 
trying to prepare papers to submit to CSCW 2011.  To participate in 
the afternoon sessions, people will need to submit either an abstract 
or a complete draft of a paper of the work they will submit to CSCW 
2011.  Abstracts should include a description of the topic of the 
work, a description of what was done (e.g. building a tool, running a 
study) and a description of results so far.  Full papers can include 
papers previously rejected from CSCW or other conferences. 

Mentors:  Mentors will be prominent members of the CSCW community, 
who have published many papers at the conference.  Mentors will 

Dr. Wendy Kellogg, IBM Research
Prof. James Landay, University of Washington and MSRA

All mentors are experienced at helping non-native English speaking 
authors fine tune their papers for the CSCW audience.  Each mentor 
will work with a group of 3-5 participants on their CSCW submissions. 
Each group will also be joined by a bilingual English-Chinese 
facilitator with experience writing CSCW papers. 

Facilitators will include:
