Workshop registration codes are available on the list of accepted workshops in the Advance Program. You will need this code to register for your workshop.

Workshops provide an opportunity to discuss and explore emerging areas of CSCW research with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. Workshops may focus on any aspect of CSCW theory or practice, established concerns or new ideas. However, radical new ideas expected to draw a sufficient number of participants are very much encouraged! The goal of a workshop is to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other and to envision future directions. For a sample of workshop topics from the last conference, please look at the CSCW 2008 Workshop Program.

Workshop proposals should consist of an abstract and a detailed proposal. The abstract should be no more than 150 words. The body of the proposal should be no more than 3000 words, and should include a description of the theme(s) of the workshop, the workshop activities and goals, the duration of the workshop (one or two full days), the background of the organizer(s), the maximum number of participants, and the means of recruiting and selecting participants.

Workshops are intended as small group discussions. Therefore, they receive minimal technology support which is reflected in the low fee for workshops. Organizers should plan to bring their own equipment (e.g., projector and laptops) and will be responsible for the security of their own equipment. We encourage workshop organizers to create web-based resources for their workshops so that advertising, submission and organization can be handled online.

Questions concerning workshop proposals should be directed to the CSCW 2010 Workshop Co-Chairs via email: workshops@cscw2010.org.

Workshop proposals should be e-mailed to the Workshop Co-Chairs at workshops@cscw2010.org by 5:00pm (17:00) Pacific Time on Friday, July 3rd, 2009. Submissions will be acknowledged via email.

Accepted workshops will need to provide a short description of the workshop for publication on the conference web site containing the workshop title, names and affiliations of organizers, 150-word abstract, workshop web site, and position paper submission or other participation requirements. The due date for the web description is Sept 20th, 2009.
