CSCW 2004

CSCW 2004, the ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, is a leading forum for presenting and discussing research and development achievements in the design, introduction and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and societies.

As well as covering traditional topics around work and working relationships, the conference has expanded its focus to include all contexts in which technology is used to mediate communication, coordination, cooperation and even competition.

The program includes presentations of papers, panels, videos, demonstrations, and interactive posters. To continue to expand participation in the conference, a new submission category, CSCW Notes, has been added. These are fully reviewed four-page papers which will provide greater flexibility for participation by the CSCW community. CSCW also offers a world-class tutorial program with full-day and half-day mini-courses taught by leading CSCW experts. Full-day workshops, which will take place on Saturday, November 6, provide an opportunity for in-depth exploration of emerging themes with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners.
