We are organizing a writing workshop on June 23, 2010 at Tsinghua University in Beijing, in order to inform authors in China about the CSCW conference and to provide guidance about writing papers for this conference.
The workshop will have two parts. In the morning, there will be a large group presentation in which we describe CSCW and other ACM conferences, the kinds of papers that can be submitted, and the general review process. In the afternoon, there will be small group writing sessions with a native English-speaking mentor from the CSCW community.
The morning session is open to anyone who would like to attend. The afternoon session is reserved for people who are trying to prepare papers to submit to CSCW 2011. To participate in the afternoon sessions, people will need to submit either an abstract or a complete draft of a paper of the work they will submit to CSCW 2011. Abstracts should include a description of the topic of the work, a description of what was done (e.g. building a tool, running a study) and a description of results so far. Full papers can include papers previously rejected from CSCW or other conferences.
Mentors will be prominent members of the CSCW community, who have published many papers at the conference. Mentors will include:
All mentors are experienced at helping non-native English-speaking authors fine-tune their papers for the CSCW audience. Each mentor will work with a group of 3–5 participants on their CSCW submissions. Each group will also be joined by a bilingual English–Chinese facilitator with experience writing CSCW papers. Facilitators will include:
Registration costs will be 200 RMB for CCF or ACM members; 300 RMB for non-members. To register, please visit the CCF website (please note this site is in Chinese).
