CALL FOR PAPERS – ECSCW 2018
The 16th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work: The International venue on Practice-centred computing and the Design of cooperation technologies

Nancy, France, June 4-8, 2018

Website: http://ecscw2018.loria.fr/
Submission link: https://www.editorialmanager.com/cosu

This single-track conference in Europe on CSCW research will contain Journal Publications (Journal of CSCW) and exploratory papers (published in the ECSCW/EUSSET Digital Library). This is the call for Journal of CSCW and if your paper is too exploratory for the Journal of CSCW
standards, we have coordinated the deadline making it possible to submit your work as exploratory (http://ecscw2018.loria.fr/exploratory-papers/).

The ECSCW conferences are single-track conferences that contribute to developing an interdisciplinary ECSCW community. The conference format facilitates critical discussion across disciplinary and national borders in the field. An overview of earlier ECSCW conferences (and proceedings) is available from http://ecscw.org/

Submitted long papers documenting original, rich, and in-depth contributions to CSCW will follow a journal-level review process. Accepted submissions will be published in Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW): The Journal of Collaborative Computing and Work Practices,
a journal with a high impact factor of 1.784.

CSCW focuses on enhancing our understanding of the practices of cooperative work and on exploring and designing CSCW systems. The ECSCW conference is an important venue for defining and further developing the agenda for CSCW research. The conference has a longstanding interest in empirical, conceptual and theoretical contributions and has a tradition of inclusiveness. ECSCW addresses themes which include but are not limited to:

  • Conceptualising practice in work and other activities, and the relationship between understanding practice and the design of computer artifacts: how can we understand work (the “W”)?
  • Cooperation and its characteristics (e.g., describing the particulars of articulation work and coordination mechanisms in a given setting): how can we understand cooperative work (the “CW”)?
  • Methods for investigating human practices: the nature of ethnography and the role of other innovative methods in CSCW.
  • Digital and other material artefacts in cooperative settings: how can we support cooperative work in increasingly complex, networked settings (the “CS”)?

Important dates:
