CSCW 2010: The 2010 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work • February 6–10, 2010 • Savannah, Georgia, USA


Interactive Posters


CSCW 2010 will include an interactive poster category for late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a full or short paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies, early student research, and other research best presented in an interactive forum.

Posters will be presented in a special Poster Session where researchers will interact directly with conference attendees. The posters will then remain up throughout the remainder of the conference.

Accepted Interactive Poster abstracts will be published in the Conference Supplement that will be circulated to attendees at registration. Poster abstracts will not be incorporated into the main CSCW 2010 Conference Proceedings.
