Notes Description

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit Notes to the ECSCW 2022. 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, have a compact argument to make, or describe an insightful experience from designing, implementing or sustaining a system for collaboration, this publication format is the right choice for you. This could include, but is not limited to the following:

  • – A new methodology for designing or examining CSCW technologies  
  • – Insights from the implementation of an IT system supporting collaboration 
  • – First experiences and insights from the use of a new system supporting collaboration 
  • – A case study of a collaborative technology in a domain not typically studied in CSCW research 
  • – A discussion or unfolding of a new CSCW concept or theory

ECSCW Notes should make a specific, explicit contribution on its own, but are not expected to provide full length of discussion or related work, or scientific background as broad and complete as paper submissions. At the same time, the reviewers will expect the Notes to link to CSCW research. 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We are looking forward to previously unpublished, concise and insightful submissions which make substantive progress in a narrow, but appealing field of CSCW and can benefit from presentation and discussion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.

If you are submitting a note on accessibility or assistive technology, please refer to the SIGACCESS guidelines on writing about disability.

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.

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