The ACM conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing is an international and interdisciplinary conference focused on how technology intersects with social practices. The conference will offer several types of submission including papers, posters, demos, workshops, panels, doctoral colloquium in 2018, with details to be posted on this page in early 2018.
Contributions to CSCW across a variety of research techniques, 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 design. Hardware, architectures, infrastructures, interaction design, technical foundations, algorithms, and/or toolkits that enable the building of new social and collaborative systems and experiences.
Theories. Critical analysis or theory with clear relevance to the design or study of social and collaborative systems.
Empirical investigations. Findings, guidelines, and/or studies related to communication, collaboration, and social technologies, practices, or use. CSCW 2018 welcomes diverse methods and approaches.
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 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.
Note that CSCW is moving all publications to the Proceedings of the ACM (PACM). All CSCW papers (including Online First papers) will be include in the Proceedings of the ACM (PACM) journal.
To bridge the gap until the 2018 paper deadline, we offered an Online First call for paper participation. The Online First deadline has passed, but details about this process can be found here.
