Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to participate in the ACM 2002 Conference on
Computer Supported Cooperative Work, which will convene November 16-20 in
New Orleans, Louisiana. The conference program will include research papers,
videos, interactive posters, demonstrations, panels, tutorials, workshops, a
doctoral colloquium, and other exciting activities.

Although the deadlines for submission of papers, videos, panels, tutorials,
and workshops have passed, we are still accepting submissions for
interactive posters, demonstrations, and doctoral colloquium.

Please forward this message to anyone who you think may be interested; our
apologies if you receive multiple copies. If you have any questions, please
visit our web site (http://www.acm.org/cscw2002) or contact us by email
(cscw2002-info at acm.org). We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!

ACM 2002 Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW 2002)

            Sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups on

            Supporting Group Work (SIGGROUP) and

            Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI).

New Orleans, Louisiana, 16-20 November 2002

                    Call for Participation

The CSCW Conference is an ideal venue for presenting research and
development achievements in the design, introduction, and use of technology
that affect groups, organizations communities and societies. Although work
is an important area of focus for the conference - the conference has
traditionally focused on such topics as the use of email, chat, voicemail
and videoconferencing in supporting people's work activities and working
relationships - technology is increasingly supporting a wide range of
recreational and social activities. As consumer markets continue to expand,
more and more people are able to connect online and we are moving toward a
Computer Supported Cooperative World. Appropriate topic areas for CSCW 2002
therefore include all contexts in which technology is used to mediate
communication, coordination, cooperation and even competition among people,
including entertainment, games, art, music and the remote sharing of
intimate moments.

Given its broad scope, CSCW is a multi-disciplinary conference, and
participation of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and perspectives
is strongly encouraged. We welcome submissions from researchers and
practitioners in all sectors, including academia, industry and government.

CSCW has consistently been at the leading edge of thinking about the role of
coordination and communication technologies in our lives. With your help,
CSCW 2002 will play an important role in continuing this tradition. Come and
help us make CSCW a stimulating and exciting event.

Topics of interest include but  are not restricted to the following:

* Innovations and experiences with Intranets, the Internet, WWW

* Innovative installations: CSCW and the arts

* Innovative technologies and architectures to support group activity,
awareness and telepresence

* Social and organizational effects of introducing technologies

* Theoretical aspects of coordination and communication

* Methodologies and tools for design and analysis of collaborative practices

* Ethnographic and case studies of work practice

* Working with and through collections of heterogeneous technologies

* Emerging issues for global systems

Although some submission categories are now closed, we still have a number
of other categories (listed below) that may be of interest to perspective
participants. Please visit our web site (http://www.acm.org/cscw2002) to
learn more about these categories.

INTERACTIVE  POSTERS: Interactive Posters provide an opportunity for
researchers to present work in a more open format where authors interact
directly with groups of conference attendees. We especially encourage
submission of late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not
suitable for a full paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through user
studies, student research, and other research best presented in this open
format. Interactive Poster submissions should include a poster abstract of
no longer than 2 pages, including all figures and references.

DEMONSTRATIONS: Demonstrations allow conference participants to view novel
or noteworthy CSCW systems in action, discuss the systems with those who
created them, and perhaps to try them out. Appropriate demonstrations
include applications, technologies, research prototypes and products. This
forum is not an opportunity for marketing or sales presentations. Presenters
must have been directly involved with the development of the system and be
able to explain the differentiating and novel contributions of the system.
Demo proposals should be a maximum of 4 pages.

DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM:  This Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can
meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced CSCW
researchers and practitioners. We welcome applicants from a broad range of
disciplines and approaches that inform CSCW, including sociology, computer
science, cognitive science, and related fields. Applicants should be beyond
the proposal stage and into their dissertation research. The Colloquium
committee will select approximately 10 participants who will be expected to
give a short, informal presentation of their work during the Colloquium, to
be followed by a discussion. Submissions should be no longer than 3 pages.

SUBMISSIONS:  CSCW 2002 requires online submission. Please see the CSCW 2002
website (http://www.acm.org/cscw2002) for information about online
submission information. All submissions should be formatted according to the
standard ACM SIGCHI publication guidelines.
