Submission Format

  • While the length of notes is flexible, we expect that they will be no longer than 6,000 words without references. Longer versions should be justified.
  • It is important that all authors follow the notes template. This template is available in RTF, MS Wordor LaTeX format
  • Submissions will be selected for presentation based on the opinions from the reviewers. No shepherding or additional rounds of review are planned.

Notes Description

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit Notes to the ECSCW 2021. With notes the authors receive the opportunity to publish succinct and focused empirical or conceptual studies to support progress in a specific sub-domain of CSCW.

If you want to present a pointed insight from your field work or have a compact argument to make, this publication format is the right choice for you.

ECSCW Notes should make a specific, explicit contribution on its own, but are not expected to provide discussion or scientific background as broad and complete as paper submissions. At the same time, the reviewers will expect the Notes to link to the tradition of CSCW. If you have a provocative, challenging idea that still needs more shaping and discussion, you might want to consider Exploratory Papers instead.

We are looking forward to previously unpublished, concise and insightful submissions which make substantive progress in a narrow, but appealing field of CSCW and can benefit from presentation and discussion at the ECSCW conference.

Selection Process

Each Note will have at least two anonymous reviewers assigned by the Notes Co-Chairs. The final decision on acceptance/rejection will be made by the Notes Co-Chairs relying on the reviews by the anonymous reviewers.

Notes that will not be in the appropriate submission format can be desk rejected.

The deadline for submission is January 22nd, 2021. Authors will be notified about the acceptance/rejection of their contribution by March 31st, 2021.

The camera-ready copy of accepted papers is due on May 11th, 2021.

Contributions submitted as Notes can, at discretion of the Notes Co-Chairs and Exploratory Papers Co-Chairs, be redirected to the Exploratory Papers track.
