Table of Contents

The 16th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW) 2013


  • Social Computing: Studies, theories, designs, mechanisms, and software infrastructures addressing social networking, user-generated content, online gaming, crowdsourcing and collective intelligence, virtual worlds, collaborative information seeking, etc.
  • Theories and models: Critical analysis or organizing theory with clear relevance to the design or study of social and collaborative systems.
  • System design: Hardware, architectures, infrastructures, interaction design, technical foundations, or toolkits that enable the building of new social and collaborative systems.
  • Empirical investigations: Findings, guidelines, ethnographic studies of technologies, practices or use of communication, collaboration and social communication technologies.
  • Methodologies and tools: Novel methods or combinations of approaches and tools used in building systems or studying their use.
  • Domain-specific social and collaborative applications: For healthcare, transportation, gaming (for enjoyment or work), ICT4D, sustainability, collective intelligence or global collaboration, or other domains.
  • Collaboration systems based on emerging technologies: Mobile and ubiquitous computing, game engines, virtual worlds, and sensor-based environments.
  • Crossing boundaries: Studies, prototypes, or other investigations that explore interactions across disciplines, distance, languages, generations, and cultures, to help better understand how to transcend social, temporal, and spatial boundaries.


There is no arbitrary minimum or maximum length imposed on papers. Rather, reviewers will be instructed to weigh the contribution of a paper relative to its length. Papers should report research thoroughly but succinctly: brevity is a virtue. Many research papers will be 10 pages long (the previous length limit for papers) but may be shorter if the contribution can be described and supported in fewer pages. While we will review papers longer than 10 pages, the contribution must warrant the extra length: the more you write, the more work for reviewers! Shorter, more focused papers (called Notes in years prior to 2013) are encouraged and will be reviewed like any other paper. Papers whose length is incommensurate with their contribution will be rejected.

Papers 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.

Submissions must be in the HCI Archive Format.
