What is CSCW Horizons?

CSCW Horizon provides an opportunity to showcase and discuss research 
that expands the boundaries of CSCW beyond its standard topics and 
approaches. We solicit creative, unorthodox, inspirational submissions 
that help advance the CSCW community constructively, by provoking 
debate, predicting beyond the research horizon, or revealing unresolved 
issues in the field. This can be a chance for authors to present work that:

- Challenges the basic questions being asked and approaches used in 
traditional CSCW work
- Brings new perspectives from other fields
- Is visionary, futuristic, or has not been previously explored
- Is generally less represented at the conference
- Is controversial
- Could benefit from public discussion that would not be possible in a 
traditional session.

Horizon can be any media format (text, video, demo). Paper submissions 
will be published in the ACM Digital Library and distributed to all 
attendees as part of the Conference Extended Abstracts. Submissions 
should be in the Extended Abstracts Format and be between 412 pages in 
length. Submissions should be emailed to the session chairs at 
[log in to unmask] by September 9, 2011, 5PM PDT.

During the session, the presentation of each work will be followed by a 
discussion that will include a panel and the audience. Each work will 
receive 10-20 minutes for presentation and discussion depending on the 
submission type and the final program.
