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: www.ecscw.org. 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.
