*** Conference Announcement ***

ACM 1996 Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work

November 16-20, 1996
Boston, Massachusetts, USA


Papers due: March 20, 1996


We invite you to submit original work to the 1996 ACM Conference on Computer
Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW 96).

This year's theme is Cooperating Communities. Communities are made up of
people who share similar interests, professions, types of interaction or a
common locale. Over a five-day period, we will explore the new and
productive ways in which different communities can come together. With the
explosion of popular interest in networked computer systems and the
Internet, this conference is expected to play an important role in framing
and extending the discussion about technology's role in the future of work.

CSCW is a multi-disciplinary field encompassing theory and practice,
engineering and social sciences. Topics suitable for submission include:

* Theories of coordination and collaboration
* Work practice studies of collaboration
* Workplace design to support collaboration
* Methodologies and tools for analyzing cooperative work
* Impact of technology on individuals or organizations
* Technologies or architectures to support collaboration

Submissions are encouraged from researchers and practitioners in academia,
industry, consulting or government on topics related to the theory,
practice, design or support for collaborative work conducted by small or
large groups. CSCW is an international conference; we welcome submissions
from all countries. Whether you submit original work or not, we hope you
plan on attending the conference. Remember to mark your calendar!
