GROUP 2016 : ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work
Conference Series : International Conference on Supporting Group Work
Call For Papers
For over 25 years, the ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work is a premier venue for research on Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Human Computer Interaction, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning and Socio-Technical Studies. The conference integrates work in social science, computer science, engineering, design, values, and other diverse topics of interest and concern. Group 2016 continues the tradition of being truly international in both organizational structure as well as participants.
Key goals for the program are to encourage and facilitate researchers within CSCW and HCI to interact across disciplinary boundaries. We encourage high-level research contributions from interdisciplinary groups to present work which might be difficult to place within one simple category. We are open for a plurality of research methods, and are looking forward to the latest findings within broad areas such as systems, society, participation, critique, collaboration, and human interaction in different types of collaborative practices. GROUP 2016 in particular would like to encourage practitioners, industrial partners, academics, and other interested people to participate. Participation can take different forms; for the first time in 2016, authors of newly published papers from the Journal of CSCW (http://link.springer.com/journal/10606) will have the occasion to present their papers at the conference.
