Call for Work-In-Progress

Work In Progress is a new peer reviewed submission category for ECSCW 2013.

The purpose of Work-in-Progress is to allow the community to participate in an interactive event at ECSCW, where participants have an opportunity to present and discuss their current work and early results. Work-in-Progress sessions provide a unique opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, for getting early feedback on current work and preliminary results, and fostering discussions and collaborations among colleagues.

Important Dates
  • Submission Deadline: 15 June Extended to 22 June 2013 (5:00pm PDT) using EasyChair
  • Notification Date: 26 July 2013
  • Camera-Ready Deadline: 09 August 2013

A Work-in-Progress submission is a six-page extended abstract prepared in the ECSCW format (author kits and paper templates available for Word, PDF, and LaTeX) and submitted as a PDF file, via the EasyChair submission system.

Your extended abstract should be camera-ready and thoroughly copy-edited. Work-in-Progress submissions are not anonymous and should therefore include all author names, affiliations and contact information.

Due to the short review cycle, there should be nearly no changes between your submissions and the camera-ready final documents, except in rare circumstances.

Selection Process

Work-in-Progress submissions will be selected by the ECSCW Program Committee. The process has been designed to acknowledge the early-stage nature of the work.

Work-in-Progress authors will be notified of acceptance. If a submission is accepted to appear at the conference, the contact person will receive further instructions regarding the inclusion of their extended abstract in the Vol. 2 Proceedings, as well as instructions for the presentation at the conference.

Copyright is retained by the authors, and the material from them can be used as the basis for future publications.

What is a Work-In-Progress?

A Work-in-Progress is a concise report of recent findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant to the ECSCW community. A significant benefit of a Work-in-Progress derives from the discussion between the author and conference attendees that will be fostered by the face-to-face presentation of the work.

This submission category aims to attract participation from a broad range of disciplines covering a spectrum of topics and methodologies. Submissions may include, but are not limited to, the following types of work: description of original CSCW systems, descriptions of new concepts, methods or techniques, for use in CSCW, studies on collective practices, systems in use...

At the Conference

Authors will be expected to attend the conference and will be assigned a time and location in the program to present their work to conference attendees during Interactive Sessions. Work-in-progress submissions whose authors are not at the conference to present will be withdrawn from the EUSSET online library.
