Call for Participation

We invite you to submit your research to the 2014 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW 2014) to be held February 15-19, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

CSCW brings together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry who are interested in both the technical and social aspects of collaboration. The development and application of new technologies continues to enable new ways of working together and coordinating activities. Cooperation and coordination take place in different settings, ranging from work to recreational and social activities. Moreover, an increasing range of devices are involved in cooperation, as we collaborate in different contexts and situations. The conference has several venues for participation:

Appropriate topic areas for CSCW include all contexts in which technology is used to mediate human activities such as communication, coordination, cooperation, competition, entertainment, education, medicine, art, music, and play. The technology may include: email, instant messaging, blogs, social media, shared workspaces, teleconferencing, games, co-located systems, robotics, and emerging technologies.

Given the broad charter of the CSCW research area, we are interested both in research on the core themes which have made CSCW an intellectually rich and rigorous community, and on submissions that push the boundaries of CSCW research and illustrate the diverse technologies which facilitate collaboration. Possible topics include:
