Call for Participation

  
The CSCW Conference is an ideal venue for presenting research and
development achievements in the design, introduction, and use of
technology that affect groups, organizations communities and societies.
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
