The 2012 ACM Conference on: Computer Supported Cooperative Work 11-15 February, 2012 Seattle, WA, USA Call for participation – deadlines

CSCW is an international and interdisciplinary conference on technical and social aspects of communication, collaboration, and coordination. The conference addresses the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, and communities. CSCW topics continue to expand as we increasingly use technologies to live, work, and play with others..

This year we have adopted a new review process for papers and notes intended to increase their diversity and quality. The submission deadline is early to avoid conflicting with the CHI 2012 deadline. This enables us to include a revision cycle: qualifying authors can revise their submissions after the initial reviews..

For more details about CSCW 2012, please review the call for participation on our conference homepage, www.cscw2012.org. To learn about future details as they become available, please follow us on Twitter (@acm_2012) and/or “like” us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/CSCW2012)..
