Submission Format & Process

Submissions should utilize the Latex, RTF or MS Word template and be no longer than 2000 words excluding references. Proposals should be sent by email to email@example.com.
ECSCW Panels aim to highlight emerging and innovative topics in the field so that ECSCW 2022 attendees can explore, engage with, and ultimately encourage the transformation of CSCW research to move in new and provocative directions. The format of a panel provides a unique opportunity to pull together a diverse range of voices to collectively offer a range of viewpoints and positions. In this way, panels act as a vital medium for the ECSCW community to discuss emerging topics and research agendas, and debate issues that may not yet become fully recognized, acknowledged, or discussed.
Ideally, panel proposals will be organized around 3-4 participants who represent a diversity of ideas and approaches related to a given topic. Topics should be novel, lively, or controversial so that they can inspire and engage conference attendees, provoke elaborative discussion, and help move forward core concerns for ECSCW research. We encourage panel proposers to identify prospective panelists who can not only share their expertise on a particular topic but also represent diverse perspectives, disciplines, methods, and approaches. Every panel should be facilitated by a moderator who will guide the conversation among panelists and engage the audience. In their proposals, we encourage panel organizers to articulate how they will creatively facilitate audience engagement and other proposed interactions during their panel session.
We invite proposals that widen the framing and understanding of computer-supported cooperative work arrangements by promoting cultural, ethnic, and gender diversity. All panel submissions must include the following details:
- A detailed treatment of the topic to be discussed, including a brief review of related literature;
- A description of proposed panelists and their topical positions
- A well-structured session plan, including the intended organization of panelist presentations and audience interaction
- Brief biographies of proposed panelists describing salient expertise relative to the proposed topic;
- A provisional plan for how the panel will be run should it need to be conducted virtually
Proposals will be single-blind reviewed by the Panels Co-Chairs and select members of the ECSCW program committee. Selection will be based on the relevance and innovativeness of the proposed topic, the panelists’ expertise, and the plan for creative interaction among panelists and conference attendees outlined by the organizers.
