Call: CRIWG Conference on Collaboration and Technology

Collaboration Researchers International Working Group presents

16th CRIWG Conference on Collaboration and Technology
(CRIWG 2010)

When: Sep 20, 2010 – Sep 23, 2010
Where: Maastricht, The Netherlands
Submission Deadline: Mar 26, 2010

Call For Papers

The CRIWG Conference on Collaboration and Technology seeks scientific papers that inform the design, development, deployment, and use of collaboration technology (groupware) and the work practices they support. Founded in 1995, CRIWG has become a significant forum for researchers and professionals to exchange ideas and experiences about problems and solutions related to collaboration technology.

Most challenges in the collaboration technology field require a multidisciplinary, multi-methodological approach. CRIWG seeks papers on groupware from a wide variety of academic perspectives and epistemologies, ranging from collaborative and exploratory research, to theory building and testing, applied research, design science, engineering, and innovative evaluation methods. Researchers can report their ideas, theories, models, designs and experimental results to CRIWG either by submitting full paper contributions, in case of mature works, and shorter papers reporting innovative work in progress. As in previous years, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions to selected journals. PhD students are invited to present their research in the doctoral colloquium.

The CRIWG conference is supported by the Collaboration Research International Working Group (http://www.criwg.org/), an open community of researchers. Traditionally, CRIWG is organized in remote places alternating between the Americas and Europe, with a small number of presentations, fostering critical discussion, team building and collaboration. The location selected for the CRIWG 2010 conference is Maastricht, The Netherlands. Delft University of Technology will organize the conference.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
=====================
The CRIWG 2010 full and work in progress papers will be published by Springer-Verlag as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Extended and reviewed best papers will be published in special issues of international journals.

Electronic paper submissions are accepted in two categories: full papers and work in progress papers. Full papers have a length of up to 16 pages based on mature and finished research while work in progress papers should have a maximum length of 8 pages, both of them following the Springer LNCS format. Electronic submission site will be soon available in this Web site: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=criwg2010. Further news will be published in this Web site: http://criwg2010.tudelft.nl/

We will use a double-blind reviewing process. Please, do not include the author’s name and affiliation in the submitted paper itself. As a result of the reviewing process, the Program Committee may suggest changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including the category of the paper. In this case, a paper will be conditionally accepted. The PC Chairs will decide on the final acceptance or rejection, based on the analysis of the revised paper. The format for the final version will be the Springer LNCS format, which includes e.g. templates for MS Word and Latex.

For submission guidelines concerning the doctoral colloquium please refer to the CRIWG 2010 Web site: http://criwg2010.tudelft.nl/
