CRIWG 2009 - 15th Collaboration Researchers' International Workshop on Groupware
September 13-17, Peso da Régua, Douro, Portugal
The Collaboration Research International Workshop on Groupware (CRIWG) seeks scientific and engineering papers that inform the design, development, deployment, and use of groupware and the work practices they support. Founded in 1995, CRIWG has become a significant forum for academic researchers and professionals to exchange ideas and experiences about problems and solutions related to group technology.
Most challenges in the groupware field require a multidisciplinary, multi-methodological approach. CRIWG seeks papers on groupware from a wide variety of academic perspectives and epistemologies, ranging from collaborative and exploratory research, to theory building and testing, applied research, engineering, and innovative evaluation methods. Researchers can report their ideas, theories, models, designs and experimental results to CRIWG either by submitting full paper contributions, in case of mature works, and shorter papers reporting innovative work in progress. As in previous years, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions to selected journals. PhD students are invited to present their research in the doctoral colloquium.
The CRIWG 2009 workshop follows the success of the previous international CRIWG events held in USA, (Omaha) in 2008, Argentina (Bariloche) in 2007, Spain (Medina del Campo) in 2006, Brazil (Porto de Galinhas) in 2005, Costa Rica (San Carlos) in 2004, France (Autrans) in 2003, Chile (La Serena) in 2002, Germany (Darmstadt) in 2001, Portugal (Madeira Island) in 2000, Mexico (Cancun) in 1999, Brazil (Buzios) in 1998, Spain (El Escorial) in 1997, Chile (Puerto Varas) in 1996, and Portugal (Lisbon) in 1995.
The CRIWG 2009 workshop seeks paper contributions on the following key areas:
- Collaboration Technologies and Technology Issues, for example:
Systems, software, and data architectures for groupware
Jointly authored pages, streaming, and information access technologies
Groupware UI considerations
Groupware development frameworks and toolkits
Groupware design approaches
Access control, alerts, attention mechanisms, presence indicators,
- Collaboration Concepts and Theories, for example:
Group Productivity, efficiency, effectiveness
Theory on satisfaction with group work and groupware
Theory on acceptance, adoption, and diffusion of groupware and collaborative work practices
Collaboration across and between cultures
- Aggregated systems
Group support systems
Collaborative modeling tools
Workflow management systems
Collaborative engineering systems
Collaborative project management systems
- Application Domains for Groupware, for example:
Productive collaboration in virtual environments
- Social Aspects of groupware, for example:
Virtual worlds and communities
Social tagging, folksonomy
The CRIWG workshop is supported by the Collaboration Research International Working group on Groupware, an open community of researchers. Traditionally, CRIWG is organized in remote places alternating between the Americas and Europe, with a small number of presentations, fostering critical discussion, team building and collaboration. The location selected for the CRIWG 2009 workshop is Peso da Régua, Douro, Portugal. The University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro will organize the workshop.
- Full and Work in Progress Papers
Submission deadline: April 3, 2009
Notification of acceptance: May 15, 2009
Camera ready papers: June 15, 2009
- Doctoral Colloquium Papers
Submission deadline: June 15, 2009
The CRIWG 2009 full and work in progress papers will be published by Springer-Verlag as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Extended and reviewed best papers will be published in special issues of international journals.
Electronic paper submissions are accepted in two categories: full technical papers and work in progress papers. Full papers have a length of up to 16 pages while work in progress papers should have a maximum length of 8 pages, both of them following the Springer LNCS format. Electronic submission site will be soon available in this Web site: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=criwg09. Further news will be published in this Web site: www.criwg.org.
We will use a double-blind reviewing process. Please, do not include the author's name and affiliation or any indication, which may disclose the paper's authorship, in the submitted paper itself. As a result of the reviewing process, the Program Committee may suggest changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including the category of the paper. In this case, a paper will be conditionally accepted. The PC Chairs will decide on the final acceptance or rejection, based on the analysis of the revised paper. The format for the final version will be the Springer LNCS format, which includes e.g. templates for MS Word and Latex.
For submission guidelines concerning the doctoral colloquium please refer to the CRIWG 2009 Web site: www.criwg.org.
