What is a Panel?

A panel is a collection of people discussing an important topic to our field with energy, insight, and verve - they need not be dull and boring.

Great panels are an excellent way to generate debate, raise new and interesting issues at CSCW, and hear multiple points of view on a given topic. CSCW panels are a forum for discussing provocative, controversial, innovative, emerging, boundary-spanning, and boundary-breaking issues.

While paper sessions provide detailed discussions of recently completed work, panels provide an opportunity to hear from researchers in the field about about what is on the horizon - or what is already here but not yet recognized, acknowledged or discussed.

Criteria for Successful Panels

The best panels provide opportunities for audience participation. We especially encourage proposals for panels that will:

  • Discuss relevant, important, and critical topics

  • Engage the audience and provoke discussion

  • Bring several disciplines, methods, or approaches in productive conversation

  • Represent a diversity of individuals, who can bring multiple perspectives to the topic

All questions should be directed to
