Papers (up to 10 pages) and Notes (4 pages) should detail original research contributions. Papers and Notes will be presented at the CSCW conference and will be included in the conference proceedings archived in the ACM Digital Library. CSCW does not accept submissions that were published previously in formally reviewed publications or that are currently submitted elsewhere.

Papers and Notes go through the same review process. Submissions must be in the HCI Archive Format. They should cite relevant published research or experience, highlight novel aspects of the submission, and identify the most significant contributions. Evaluation is on the basis of originality, significance, quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference program diversity. Please use the guidelines below in considering whether the contribution size or scope of your work is most suitable for a ten-page Paper or a four-page Note.

Papers and Notes are subject to blind reviewing. Your submission should have authors' names and affiliations removed and avoid obvious identifying features. Citations to your own relevant work should not be anonymous, but please cite it without identifying yourself as the author. For example, say "Prior work by [author]" instead of "In my prior work."

Papers and Notes must include an abstract of no more than 150 words. Titles and Abstracts that are uploaded to PCS early will be used to find the best possible reviewer matches. Consider submitting a video that illustrates your work, either as a video figure judged as part of the submission (no more than two minutes long and 30MB in size) or as a longer stand-alone submission to the video track (Call for Videos).

CSCW 2012 Papers and Notes submissions must be uploaded online at the PCS submission system by 5 p.m. PDT on June 3, 2012 to be considered. Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained. Upon acceptance, the titles, authorship, and abstracts of Papers and Notes will be used in the Advance Program. Submissions should contain no information or material that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication, and should cite no publication that will be proprietary or confidential at that time.

Final versions of accepted Papers and Notes must be formatted according to the detailed instructions. Copyright release forms must be signed for inclusion in the proceedings and ACM Digital Library.

CSCW 2012 will continue the "Best of CSCW" awards program, in accordance with SIGCHI guidelines. Upon acceptance, some Papers or Notes will be nominated for additional review to identify "Honorable Mention" and "Best" awards. Approximately 5% of submissions may be nominated and 1% of total submissions awarded Best Paper or Best Note.
