Welcome to CSCW 2016!

The 19th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW 2016) will be held February 27–March 2, 2016 in San Francisco, USA.

CSCW is the premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks. Bringing together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry who are interested in the area of social computing, CSCW encompasses both the technical and social challenges encountered when supporting collaboration. The development and application of new technologies continues to enable new ways of working together and coordinating activities. Although work is an important area of focus for the conference, CSCW also embraces research and technologies supporting a wide variety of recreational and social activities using a diverse range of devices.

CSCW 2016 will offer multiple venues for contribution, including Papers, Workshops, Panels, Interactive Posters, Demonstrations, and a Doctoral Colloquium. Please see the Call for Participation for deadlines and additional information.

We invite you to begin planning not only your submissions, but also your attendance and involvement at the 2016 conference and to join the CSCW Community!
