CSCW is the premier international venue for research in the design and use
of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and
networks. We invite authors to submit their best research on all topics
relevant to collaborative and social computing. Accepted papers are
published in two annual CSCW issues of the Proceedings of the ACM on Human
Computer Interaction (PACM HCI).
Submissions are accepted at four deadlines per year. The upcoming deadline
is October 15, 2020, which will be followed by January 15, April 15, and
Jul 15, 2021. Submissions accepted for publication in the October 2020,
January 2021 and April 2021 cycles will be invited to present at CSCW 2021.
Papers accepted from July 2021 onwards will be invited to present at CSCW
*Please consult the CSCW website for comprehensive details.*
*CALL FOR PAPERS* We invite authors to submit papers that inform the design
or deployment of collaborative or social systems; introduce novel systems,
interaction techniques, or algorithms; or, study existing collaborative or
social practices. The scope of CSCW 2021 includes social computing and
social media, crowdsourcing, open and remote collaboration,
technologically-enabled or enhanced communication, such as
video-conferencing and other remote-presence technologies, CSCL, MOOCs and
related educational technologies, multi-user input technologies, collocated
work practices, work articulation and coordination, awareness, and
information sharing. This scope spans socio-technical domains of work,
home, education, healthcare, the arts, sociality, entertainment, and
ethics. Papers can report on novel research results, designs, systems, or
new ways of thinking about, studying, or supporting shared activities.
CSCW encourages papers that make a contribution to building CSCW systems,
including (but not limited to) engineering and technical enablers for CSCW
applications, methods and techniques for new CSCW services and
applications, and evaluation of both early-stage and fully-built CSCW
systems in lab or field settings.
To support diverse and high-quality contributions, CSCW uses a minimum of
two-cycle review process with opportunity for major revisions reviewed by
the same reviewers. Additionally, no arbitrary length limit is imposed on
submissions. Accepted papers are published in the Proceedings of the ACM:
Human Computer Interaction (PACM HCI) journal.
We invite contributions to CSCW across a variety of research techniques,
methods, approaches, and domains, including:
- Social and crowd computing. Studies, theories, designs, mechanisms,
systems, and/or infrastructures addressing social media, social networking,
wikis, blogs, online gaming, crowdsourcing, collective intelligence,
virtual worlds or collaborative information behaviors.
- System development. Hardware, architectures, infrastructures,
interaction design, technical foundations, algorithms, and/or toolkits that
enable the building of new social and collaborative systems and experiences.
- Theory. Critical analysis or theory with clear relevance to the design
or study of social and collaborative systems, within and beyond work
- Empirical investigations. Findings, guidelines, and/or studies of
practices, communication, collaboration, or use, as related to
- Data mining and modeling. Studies, analyses and infrastructures for
making use of large- and small-scale data.
- Methodologies and tools. Novel methods, or combinations of approaches
and tools used in building collaborative systems or studying their use.
- Domain-specific social and collaborative applications. Including
applications to healthcare, transportation, gaming, ICT4D, sustainability,
education, accessibility, global collaboration, or other domains.
- Collaboration systems based on emerging technologies. Mobile and
ubiquitous computing, game engines, virtual worlds, multi-touch, novel
display technologies, vision and gesture recognition, big data, MOOCs,
crowd labor markets, SNSs, or sensing systems.
- Ethics and policy implications. Analysis of the implications of
socio-technical systems and the algorithms that shape them.
- Crossing boundaries. Studies, prototypes, or other investigations that
explore interactions across disciplines, distance, languages, generations,
and cultures, to help better understand how to transcend social, temporal,
and/or spatial boundaries.
