Although work is an important area of focus for the conference - the conference has traditionally focused on such topics as the use of email, chat, voicemail and videoconferencing in supporting people's work activities and working relationships - technology is increasingly supporting a wide range of recreational and social activities. As consumer markets continue to expand, more and more people are able to connect online and we are moving toward a Computer Supported Cooperative World. Appropriate topic areas for CSCW 2004 therefore include all contexts in which technology is used to mediate communication, coordination, cooperation and even competition among people, including entertainment, games, art, music and the remote sharing of intimate moments. Given its broad scope, CSCW is a multi-disciplinary conference, and participation of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and perspectives is strongly encouraged. We welcome submissions from researchers and practitioners in all sectors, including academia, industry and government. CSCW has consistently been at the leading edge of thinking about the role of coordination and communication technologies in our lives. With your help, CSCW 2004 will play an important role in continuing this tradition. Come and help us make CSCW a stimulating and exciting event. Topics of interest include but are not restricted to the following: * Innovations and experiences with Intranets, the Internet, WWW * Innovative installations: CSCW and the arts * Innovative technologies and architectures to support group activity, awareness and telepresence * Social and organizational effects of introducing technologies * Theoretical aspects of coordination and communication * Methodologies and tools for design and analysis of collaborative practices * Ethnographic and case studies of work practice * Working with and through collections of heterogeneous technologies * Emerging issues for global systems The following is a list of the CSCW 2004 participation categories; prospective participants should visit our web site (http://www.acm.org/cscw2004) to learn more about these categories and how to prepare a submission.
