November 3rd-7th, 2018New York City's Hudson River (Jersey City)
CSCW is the premier venue for research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks. Bringing together top researchers and practitioners, CSCW explores the technical, social, material, and theoretical challenges of designing technology to support collaborative work and life activities. Join us as we explore how technologies can enable new ways of living and working together.
The official program had been announced, with plenary events from Emily Bell and Julia Angwin, and a presentation by Natasha Dow-Schüll. The program features 295 research papers in 7 concurrent sessions, and over 70 posters and demos. Create your own conference schedule at Confer, or read more about some of the papers on Medium. Advance registration is strongly recommended.
The conference code of conduct is now available here.
The full conference program is now available: please see the program page for details.
We'd like to congratulate Erin Bradner, Steve Whittaker, and Bonnie Nardi on their 2018 CSCW Lasting Impact Award for their 2000 paper Interaction and Outeraction: Instant Messaging in Action!

Accepted papers from the Online First deadline were available “Online First” a year ahead of the conference, in fall 2017. The regular conference submission deadline, in spring 2018, will result in papers published just ahead of the actual conference.
Papers accepted in the 2017 Online First deadline will be presented with full recognition as CSCW regular track full papers, with an oral presentation at the conference. Online First papers will be treated equally to papers accepted in the spring 2018 (the final, regular) conference deadline, including eligibility for best paper awards, archival status, and citation style.
PACM (Proceedings of the ACM) is shorthand for a journal series -- attached mainly to ACM special interest groups -- that will change our publication format to something more closely resembling a journal article. In general, the paper submission process and assessment for CSCW will remain much the same. The main difference lies in how the work will be referenced.
Most interesting is that automatic indexing services like ISI will read our work as a journal, not as a conference proceedings. This should not only heighten the visibility of work of authors in this community, but also allow for better comparability with fields outside of Computer Science.
It is the intention to move all future CSCW conferences to the PACM publishing model.
This change has been considered over many years. Prior to 2010, CSCW occurred in the Fall, moving to the Spring when it became an annual conference. The Spring time frame was problematic, however, for two reasons:
It was the combination of the timing of submissions and representation, as well as the overlap with CHI, that drove the steering committee to present the change to a Fall timeline, and to receive enough positive feedback to make the change.

CSCW invites submission to a wide range of venues including papers, posters, demos, panels, workshops, and a doctoral consortium. The scope of CSCW spans socio-technical domains including work, home, education, healthcare, the arts, leisure, and entertainment. The conference seeks novel research results or new ways of thinking about, studying, or supporting shared activities in these and related areas. We are no longer accepting paper submissions at this time. Please visit this page to find other ways to participate in the conference.
