Call for Participation · Interactive Papers

Important Dates

CSCW 2011 will include an Interactive Papers category for late-breaking and preliminary results, smaller results not suitable for a full or short paper, innovative ideas not yet validated through user studies, early student research, and other research best presented in an interactive forum.

Interactive Papers will be presented in a special Poster Session where researchers will interact directly with conference attendees. The posters will then remain up throughout the remainder of the conference. The major difference from the previous CSCW conferences is that the Interactive Papers for CSCW 2011 will be archived in the ACM Digital Library. Note that authors still retain copyright of the paper.

Accepted Interactive Papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings that will be circulated to attendees at registration.
