ECSCW 2013 calls for submissions reporting on investigations into cooperation in real world settings and designs of innovative technologies to support collaboration.

ECSCW is interested in cooperative settings in the workplace, in everyday life, and the civic society, and across boundaries between these spheres of life.

The conference is soliciting high quality contributions that advance the state of the art in CSCW:

  • empirical studies of work that contribute to the design space,
  • novel techniques and technologies,
  • enhancement of the conceptual foundations.

In particular, the conference welcomes contributions that focus on:

  • Empirical studies of collaboration in settings ranging from work to civic engagement and everyday life.
  • Comparative analyses of empirical studies that contribute to a deeper understanding of domain specific or more general CSCW principles.
  • Empirical studies on the appropriation of innovative technologies.
  • Studies on collaborative work in emergent and developing economies.
  • Investigations into the usage and design of coordination artefacts as well as webs of technology (infrastructures).
  • New technology-enabled forms of organization and virtual organizing.
  • Innovative technologies, applications, or functionality in support of collaborative work.
  • Conception, construction and use of CSCW technologies in complex and demanding settings, like manufacturing, software engineering, healthcare, care giving, security, and control systems.
  • Architectures supporting CSCW technologies with quality requirements, such as flexibility, tailorability, and adaptability.
  • Ubiquitous and mobile computing in collaborative settings: empirical research of use, studies of integration with other CSCW technologies and applications.
  • Innovative use of social media to support collective action.

All contributions will be rigorously evaluated in terms of their novelty, significance, quality, and contribution to the discipline. Accepted research papers and notes will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer and freely available at the ECSCW website at: They will also be indexed in and available through the ACM digital library.

ECSCW 2013 requires that submissions have not been published previously and that papers submitted are not under simultaneous review for any other publication.

More information about the various submission categories, formats, and how to submit will be available at the conference website:
