ECSCW is a series of international conferences on computer-supported cooperative work located in Europe. Since 30 years, the ECSCW conference has served as a major international venue for defining and further developing the agenda for CSCW research, which has been focusing on the understanding of cooperative work practices and investigation of the mediational role of computer technology in it.

  • The conference has a longstanding interest in empirical, conceptual, theoretical and technical contributions, and has a tradition of innovation and inclusiveness.
  •  The conference series is affiliated with EUSSET – the European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies.
  • The ECSCW conferences are single-track conferences that contribute to developing an interdisciplinary ECSCW community. The conference format aims to facilitate critical discussion across disciplinary and national borders in the field.
  • Accepted full papers are published by CSCW: The Journal of collaborative Computing and Work Practices. The acceptance rate for papers to ECSCW has normally been between 20 and 25%.
