Important Dates

CSCW 2011 will offer tutorials that provide the larger conference community an opportunity to learn about CSCW concepts and techniques and experts a venue to share their expertise with the global community of CSCW researchers and practitioners. Tutorials are intensive, immersive instructional sessions focused on specific topics including, but not limited to, the following:

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of (1) the topic’s importance and suitability for presentation in a tutorial format in the proposed timeframe, (2) expertise of the instructors in the topic area, and (3) the fit to the overall the tutorial and conference program. As CSCW 2011 will be the first such conference in Asia, it represents an unprecedented opportunity to grow and strengthen CSCW as a global research and practice domain through the inclusion of new researchers and practitioners, new communities of researchers and practitioners, and, potentially, new topics and concerns of particular relevance in Asian contexts. Priority will be given to tutorial proposals that take advantage of these opportunities.

Instructors can propose half- or full-day tutorials, consisting of multiple 90-minute sessions. Half-day tutorials have been particularly successful in recent years. Instructors may explicitly link two or more interrelated tutorial proposals that should be accepted or rejected together. The relationships between these courses must be defined in the proposal, including whether the tutorials must be held on the same day or in a particular order.

One instructor for each tutorial will receive an honorarium.

If you would like to propose a tutorial and are not sure whether the topic, timeline, or format would be appropriate for CSCW, we would gladly provide feedback and discuss possibilities with you (contact the tutorials co-chairs at
