The 2011 ACM Conference on
Computer Supported Cooperative Work
March 19–23, 2011 · Hangzhou, China

Call for Participation · Doctoral Colloquium

Important Dates

The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced CSCW researchers and practitioners. The colloquium will be held Saturday March 19, 2011 all day and the morning of Sunday, March 20, 2011. Dinner will be Saturday night March 19.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform CSCW, including anthropology, sociology, computer science, cognitive science, organizational studies, and related fields. We are particularly interested in applications from institutions and groups that have not been traditionally well-represented at past CSCW conferences.

Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established direction of research relevant to CSCW, and who would benefit from attendance at the Doctoral Colloquium; preference will be given to students who have already begun their dissertations and are within two years of graduation.

The Colloquium committee will select approximately 15 participants who will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Colloquium, to be followed by extensive group discussion. Participants will also present their research in an interactive poster session during the main technical program of the conference.

Applicants should submit the following items (by email to with the subject line “CSCW2011 Colloquium Submission”):

The above items should be combined into one PDF file named YOURNAME_CSCWDC2011.pdf (substitute your actual name where it reads YOURNAME).

You will also need to include (sent separately from your application):

All submissions must be received by the chairs by 5:00 p.m. (17:00) Pacific Standard Time on October 1, 2010. Submissions received after this date will not be considered. All submissions will be acknowledged by email.


We are investigating ways to support doctoral colloquium student hotel costs and conference registration. We will also investigate how we might reimburse a portion of airfare for domestic (US) participants; non-US participants would have to cover their own airfare, however. Funding is by no means definite at this point. Please check back to this page as we learn more.
