Call for Participation
We invite you to submit results of your research to the 2010 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW 2010), to be held February 6-10, 2010, in Savannah, Georgia, USA. The conference has several possibilities for participation:
- Papers & Notes
- Interactive Posters
- Doctoral Colloquium
- CSCW Horizon
- Student Volunteers
CSCW brings together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both the technical and social aspects of collaboration. Although work is an important area of focus for the conference, technology is increasingly supporting a wide range of recreational and social activities, and we embrace the growth of the discipline in the areas of Collaboration, Sociality, Computation, and the Web.
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, and music. The technology may include: email, instant messaging, blogs, shared workspaces, teleconferencing, games, co-located systems, robotics, haptics, and emerging technologies.
Given the broad charter of the CSCW research area, we are interested both in research on the core themes which have made CSCW an intellectually rich and rigorous community, and on submissions that push the boundaries of CSCW research and that illustrate the many and diverse technologies which facilitate collaboration. Possible topics include:
- Innovations and experiences with Intranets, the Internet, WWW
- Innovative installations: CSCW and the arts, media, museums, etc.
- 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 coordination and communication
- Studies exploring the appropriate balance between individual and collaborative work.
- Systems for emergency preparedness and large-scale rapid deployment (e.g. disaster relief)
- Social Systems: Social Network Sites and Collective Intelligence
- Computer Supported Cooperative Healthcare
- Multi-player gaming and Virtual Environments
- Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0, Mashups
- Visions of future directions for CSCW
- Human Robotic Collaboration (HRC)
- Collaboration with and through advanced sensing systems
