ECSCW 2013 calls for submissions reporting on investigations into
cooperation in real world settings and designs of innovative technologies to
ECSCW is interested in cooperative settings in the workplace, in everyday
life, and the civic society, and across boundaries between these spheres of
The conference is soliciting high quality contributions that advance the
state of the art in CSCW:
- empirical studies of work that contribute to the design space,
- novel techniques and technologies,
- enhancement of the conceptual foundations.
In particular, the conference welcomes contributions that focus on:
- Empirical studies of collaboration in settings ranging from work to
civic engagement and everyday life.
- Comparative analyses of empirical studies that contribute to a deeper
understanding of domain specific or more general CSCW principles.
- Empirical studies on the appropriation of innovative technologies.
- Studies on collaborative work in emergent and developing economies.
- Investigations into the usage and design of coordination artefacts as
well as webs of technology (infrastructures).
- New technology-enabled forms of organization and virtual organizing.
- Innovative technologies, applications, or functionality in support of
- Conception, construction and use of CSCW technologies in complex and
demanding settings, like manufacturing, software engineering,
healthcare, care giving, security, and control systems.
- Architectures supporting CSCW technologies with quality requirements,
such as flexibility, tailorability, and adaptability.
- Ubiquitous and mobile computing in collaborative settings: empirical
research of use, studies of integration with other CSCW technologies
- Innovative use of social media to support collective action.
All contributions will be rigorously evaluated in terms of their
novelty, significance, quality, and contribution to the discipline.
Accepted research papers and notes will be included in the conference
proceedings published by Springer and freely available at the ECSCW
website at: www.ecscw.org. They will also be indexed in and available
through the ACM digital library.
