The 21st ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW) 2018


  • Social and crowd computing: Studies, theories, designs, mechanisms, systems, and/or infrastructures addressing social media, social networking, wikis, blogs, online gaming, crowdsourcing, collective intelligence, virtual worlds or collaborative information behaviors.
  • System design: Hardware, architectures, infrastructures, interaction design, technical foundations, algorithms, and/or toolkits that enable the building of new social and collaborative systems and experiences.
  • Theories: Critical analysis or theory with clear relevance to the design or study of social and collaborative systems.
  • Empirical investigations: Findings, guidelines, and/or studies related to communication, collaboration, and social technologies, practices, or use. CSCW 2018 welcomes diverse methods and approaches.
  • Mining and modeling: Studies, analyses and infrastructures for making use of large- and small-scale data.
  • 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: Including applications to healthcare, transportation, gaming, ICT4D, sustainability, education, accessibility, global collaboration, or other domains.
  • Collaboration systems based on emerging technologies: Mobile and ubiquitous computing, game engines, virtual worlds, multi-touch, novel display technologies, vision and gesture recognition, big data, MOOCs, crowd labor markets, SNSs, or sensing systems.
  • Ethics and policy implications: Analysis of the implications of socio-technical systems and the algorithms that shape them.
  • 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/or spatial boundaries.


CSCW 2018 is using a new version of Precision Conference System (PCS 2.0): Please note that you will need to create a new login/password for this system.

PCS 2.0 is still in development, and you are encouraged to report problems or to make interface suggestions to

Authors submitting papers for peer-review to ACM publications make the following representations (see for full policy statement):

  • That the paper submitted is original, that the listed authors are the creators of the work, that each author is aware of the submission and that they are listed as an author, and that the paper is an honest representation of the underlying work.
  • That the work submitted is not currently under review at any other publication venue, and that it will not be submitted to another venue unless it has been rejected or withdrawn from this venue.
  • That the authors have the rights and intent to publish the work in the venue to which it is submitted, if the work is accepted. For conference papers, this includes the expected ability and intent to have an author of the paper register for and attend the conference to present the paper, if required.
  • That any prior publications on which this work is based are documented appropriately in the paper and/or in a cover letter available to reviewers. This documentation includes providing an explanation of the incremental contribution of the submitted CSCW 2018 paper that extends prior results published elsewhere. (In cases of double blind review, this information should be supplied to the program chairs only.)

In cases where an author feels a particular representation cannot be made, but that submission is appropriate, the author should contact the program chairs prior to submission to discuss the situation and determine whether submission will be permitted.

All submissions must be new work that has not been published in a peer reviewed conference or journal. Work previously published in workshops that do not have published proceedings may be submitted (as-is or extended) to CSCW 2018. Work previously published in workshops that do have published proceedings may only be submitted if the work is substantially extended from the workshop paper. In any case where part of a submitted paper has been previously published, the authors should contact the Papers Chairs to inform them of the prior publication, including its citation and a brief description of the changes incorporated into the CSCW 2018 submitted version.

Regarding the re-publication in English of work previously published in another language, please refer to the statement by ACM SIGCHI regarding specialized conferences:

Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained. Upon acceptance, the titles, authorship, and abstracts of papers 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 must be formatted according to detailed instructions provided by the publisher. Copyright release forms must be signed for inclusion in the proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.
