Scope of Conference

Design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams. The 11th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design (CSCWD 2007) provides a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in different but related domains to confront research results and discuss key problems. CSCWD 2007 has a theme on Human Centered Collaborative Design, with an emphasis to improve the productivity of knowledge workers through CSCW. The major topics include, but not limited to:

Techniques, methods, and tools for CSCW in design
Knowledge intensive cooperative design
User modeling for cooperative design
Intelligent agents and multi-agent systems for cooperative design
Workflows for cooperative design
VR technologies for cooperative design
Grids, Web Services and Semantic Web for CSCW in Design  
Mobile collaboration and applications
Collaborative networks and applications
Collaboration in manufacturing, services, and businesses
Distance learning/training related to design
Practice and experience with collaborative systems
Other areas related to CSCW in Design

Submission of Papers

Papers reporting original research results and experience are solicited. Each paper, written in English, should be no more than 6 pages (IEEE proceedings format), including references and Illustrations. Electronic submissions in PDF or Postscript format are strongly recommended.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present the paper.


Evaluation and Publication


All submitted papers will be reviewed by program committee members and selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.
