CSCW is an international and interdisciplinary peer reviewed conference seeking the best research on all topics relevant to collaborative and social computing. We invite authors to submit papers that inform the design or deployment of collaborative or social systems; introduce novel systems, interaction techniques, or algorithms; or study existing collaborative or social practices. The scope of CSCW 2020 includes social computing and social media, crowdsourcing, open collaboration, technologically-enabled or enhanced communication, work practices, CSCL, MOOCs, and related educational technologies, multi-user input technologies, collaboration, awareness, information sharing, and coordination. This scope spans socio-technical domains of work, home, education, healthcare, the arts, sociality, entertainment, and ethics. Papers can report on novel research results, designs, systems, or new ways of thinking about, studying, or supporting shared activities.
CSCW encourages papers that make a contribution to building CSCW systems including (but not limited to) technical enablers for CSCW applications, methods and techniques for new CSCW services and applications, and evaluation of fully-built CSCW systems and lab and field settings.
To support diverse and high-quality contributions, CSCW employs a two-phase review process and does not impose an arbitrary length limit on submissions. Accepted papers will be published in the journal Proceedings of the ACM: Human Computer Interaction (PACM HCI).
Contributions to CSCW across a variety of research techniques, approaches, and domains, including:
- Social and crowd computing. Studies, theories, designs, mechanisms, systems, and/or infrastructures addressing social media, social networking, wikis, blogs, online gaming, crowdsourcing, collective intelligence, virtual worlds or collaborative information behaviors.
- System design. Hardware, architectures, infrastructures, interaction design, technical foundations, algorithms, and/or toolkits that enable the building of new social and collaborative systems and experiences.
- Theories. Critical analysis or theory with clear relevance to the design or study of social and collaborative systems, within and beyond work settings.
- Empirical investigations. Findings, guidelines, and/or studies on practices, communication, collaboration, or use as related to collaborative technologies. CSCW 2020 welcomes diverse methods and approaches.
- Mining and modeling. Studies, analyses and infrastructures for making use of large- and small-scale data.
- Methodologies and tools. Novel methods or combinations of approaches and tools used in building systems or studying their use.
- Domain-specific social and collaborative applications. Including applications to healthcare, transportation, gaming, ICT4D, sustainability, education, accessibility, global collaboration, or other domains.
- Collaboration systems based on emerging technologies. Mobile and ubiquitous computing, game engines, virtual worlds, multi-touch, novel display technologies, vision and gesture recognition, big data, MOOCs, crowd labor markets, SNSs, or sensing systems.
- Ethics and policy implications. Analysis of the implications of socio-technical systems and the algorithms that shape them.
- Crossing boundaries. Studies, prototypes, or other investigations that explore interactions across disciplines, distance, languages, generations, and cultures, to help better understand how to transcend social, temporal, and/or spatial boundaries.
