Call for Papers Information

The 10th anniversary Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) conference will consolidate an increasingly international and interdisciplinary community and define the direction of the field for the next 10 years.

Researchers, designers, educators, and students from all relevant disciplines are invited to participate, including anthropology, cognitive, social and educational psychology, communication studies, computer science, design, didactics, education, linguistics and semiotics, philosophy of education, sociology, and subject matter specialties.

All paper submissions will be peer reviewed by multiple reviewers. All accepted submissions will be published as either full papers or short papers. Papers will be assigned to presentation formats as described below:

Full Papers: 8-10 pages. Suitable for mature work. Papers that address a broad audience, and in particular those that help set the programmatic agenda of CSCL for the next 10 years, will be assigned plenary presentations. Papers of equal quality that address a more specialized audience will be assigned to parallel paper sessions.



Short Papers: 4-5 pages. Suitable for work that is significant yet is either still in progress or does not require a long format to report. Authors will give a brief presentation, followed by the author's choice of a small group demonstration, interactive poster, further presentation, or any combination of the foregoing.


Additionally, Doctoral Consortium participants and organizers of Interactive Events, Panels, Tutorials, and Workshops will each be allocated 2-3 pages in the conference companion.

Papers in all of the above categories will be published on CD-ROM as a printable proceedings with ISBN and page numbers. The publisher will make printed versions available for sale to those who prefer that format.

Based on reviewer and participant recommendations, select full papers will be nominated to submit extended versions to the newly formed International Journal of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning. There will also be a prize for best student full or short paper.

Please refer to "Submission Instructions" for more information.
