ACM International Workshop on Intercultural Collaboration (IWIC 2009)

February 20-21, 2009
Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA USA

Program Co-Chairs
Pamela Hinds (Stanford University, USA)
Susan R. Fussell (Carnegie Mellon University, USA)
Toru Ishida (Kyoto University, Japan)

The main theme of this workshop is intercultural collaboration, from both 
technical and socio-cultural perspectives. Topics will include collaboration 
support (such as natural language processing, Web, and Internet technologies), 
social scientific analyses of intercultural interaction, and case studies that 
increase mutual understanding in our multicultural world. Submissions will be 
considered for archival papers, to be published in the ACM Digital Library, and 
non-archival panels, demonstrations, and posters.

Papers are solicited on any aspect of intercultural communication and 
collaboration. Papers can describe studies of intercultural communication and 
collaboration or present new technologies to assess and support intercultural 
interaction. Examples of suitable paper topics include:

- Field studies of intercultural collaboration in global organizations or in 
local communities
- Laboratory studies of intercultural collaboration
- Survey studies of cultural differences in collaboration styles
- Case studies of intercultural collaboration using information technologies
- Cultural responses to cross-cultural interaction
- Computer supported intercultural collaboration
- Ubiquitous/ambient technologies for intercultural collaboration
- Internet and web technologies for intercultural collaboration
- Frameworks for manual or automatic measurement of properties of intercultural 
- Multilingual communication technologies
- Interoperability of language resources
- Usability of language resources for intercultural collaboration
- New methods or measures for the study of intercultural collaboration

All papers are expected to be suitable for a multidisciplinary audience and 
focus on issues of intercultural collaboration. Long papers will be published 
in the ACM Digital Library (http://portal.acm.org/dl.cfm). Full papers should 
be no longer than 10 pages. Papers should be formatted according to the ACM 
SIGCHI template and submitted in PDF format.  Details on the submission 
procedure will be provided in the near future. Please see the SIGCHI author 
instruction page (http://sigchi.org/chipubform/) for more information and 
downloadable templates.

All full papers will be evaluated using a double-blind review process. Authors 
should omit their names and affiliations from the title area of the paper and 
conceal references to their own prior work by referring to it in the third 
person (e.g., authors should say .In an earlier study, Jones and Smith found .. 
instead of .In an earlier study, we found ..). Papers that have not been 
appropriately anonymized will be returned without review.

Panels, Demonstrations and Posters
IWIC will also feature three categories of nonarchival submissions: Panels, 
demonstrations and posters.  Submissions for these categories should be no 
longer than 3 pages in length using the ACM template (see above).

Unlike paper submissions, panels, demonstrations and posters will not be blind 
reviewed.  Authors should include their complete names and contact information 
at the top of their submitted PDF file.

Panels: Individuals may submit proposals for panels of three or four talks on a 
related theme in intercultural communication. Panel submissions will not be 
archival, so panelists may discuss previously published work. Submissions 
should provide each panelist's background and contact information, as well as a 
brief statement of his or her position on the panel theme.

Demonstrations: Individuals may submit proposals to present demonstrations of 
new technologies for intercultural communication.  Demonstration proposals 
should clearly describe the motivation for the tool and how it will be 
demonstrated at the workshop. Demonstration descriptions will not be archival; 
therefore, demonstrations can include both previously published work and work 
that is not yet ready for publication.

Posters: Individuals may submit proposals to present informal posters during 
the workshop. Poster descriptions will not be archival; therefore, posters can 
describe both previously published work and work that is not yet ready for 

Review Process:
Submitted papers, panels, and demonstrations will be reviewed by a panel of 
distinguished researchers in the area of intercultural communication and 

Important Dates:
Deadline for papers, panels, posters and demonstrations: June 30th, 2008
Author notification: September 30th, 2008
Deadline for camera ready papers: November 30th, 2008
