Awards & Recognitions

Lasting Impact Award

The Lasting Impact Award goes to a paper that is at least 10 years old and has had an impact on CSCW as a field. Nominations are taken from the community, and the decision is made by a committee of senior CSCW scholars. This year’s committee was chaired by Pamela Hinds, and consisted of Jonathan Grudin, Karrie Karahalios, Hideaki Kuzuoka, Michael Muller, and Steve Whittaker.

We’re pleased to announce that the 2022 Lasting Impact Award goes to Bob Kraut, Carmen Egido, and Jolene Galegher for their 1988 paper, Patterns of contact and communication in scientific research collaboration.


Awards and Recognitions

Beginning last year, awards and recognitions for CSCW are based on nominations by ACs and reviewers during the paper review processes, and chosen by a separate Awards Committee later. The awards evaluation process is blinded, and the committee members score papers based on both their own evaluation and the evaluations of the original reviewers, including reasons given for nominations.

Best Paper Awards represent 1% of all submitted papers, and Honorable Mentions represent another 3%. Recognitions for Contribution to Diversity and Inclusion represent strong examples of work that focuses on or serves minorities, otherwise excluded individuals or populations, or intervenes in systemic structures of inequality, and selection of these recognitions were overseen by Equity and Accessibility Co-Chairs Jean Hardy and Kate Ringland. We also have two new recognitions this year: Methods Recognitions for strong examples of work that includes well developed, explained, or implemented methods, and/or methodological innovation, and Impact Recognitions for strong examples of work that demonstrates or has clear potential to demonstrate real-world or practical impact.
