All contributions must be rendered anonymous to facilitate double blind review. Authors should take care throughout their paper that their own and their institution's identity is not revealed. Relevant references to an author's previous research should not be suppressed, but rather should be made impersonally, if they are required for reviewers to understand and evaluate the paper's contribution.

All submissions will be handled electronically.

Research Papers

There are two kinds of research paper contributions: full papers and notes. Both kinds of contributions must be formatted in strict accordance with the ECSCW formatting instructions (author kits and paper templates available for Word, PDF, and LaTeX) and must be submitted in PDF format.

Full papers may be up to 20 pages in length. Full papers should present original reports of substantive new work and make clear the novel aspects of the research they present and its contribution to the development of CSCW theory and systems design.

Notes may be up to 12 pages in length. Notes should present substantial although more focused results of a research activity, i.e. a single finding. They will be evaluated in a similar manner as full papers.

Submission Deadline: 23:59 GMT+12 on the 4th of February, 2013

You may submit your paper here (submission is now closed)

Note: the Easychair links for the rest of the submissions will be activated soon.

Workshops and Master Classes

Workshops is the best place to engage in dialogue and work-in progress with other researchers in a particular subfield. Master classes highlight key issues and is a great opportunity for junior scholars and newcomers to a domain to catch up.

Submit a Workshop or Master Class proposal here (expired). Both categories are handled together with this submission form, yet your proposal should make clear what type of event you are proposing.

Submission Deadline: June 28, 2013

Demos and Videos

Live demonstrations and videos form an important part of the conference technical program. Demonstrations of both research prototypes and commercial products by those directly involved in developing the systems are welcomed.
