Scope of the Conference
Design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams. The 2021 IEEE 24th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design (IEEE CSCWD 2021) provides a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in different but related domains to confront research results and discuss key problems. The scope of IEEE CSCWD 2021 includes the research and development of collaboration technologies and their applications to the design of processes, products, systems, and services in industries and societies. Collaboration technologies include theories, methods, mechanisms, protocols, software tools, platforms, and services that support communication, coordination and collaboration among people, software and hardware systems. Related fields of research include human-computer interaction, business process management, collaborative virtual environments, enterprise modeling, security and privacy, as well as social aspects and human factors related to collaboration and design. The major topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:
Submission of Papers
Papers reporting original research results and experience are solicited. Each paper, written in English, is limited to 6 pages (IEEE proceedings format), including references and illustrations. Electronic submissions in PDF 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.
On-site or Virtual Presentations
While IEEE CSCWD 2021 is expected to be held fully on-site on May 5-7, 2021, it will also be planned to have online presentations in case travel restrictions are not lifted in some parts of the world by then.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by program committee members and selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE categorized conference proceedings and will be submitted for indexing to EI (Compendex), DBLP and other indexing services. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit revised and expanded version of their papers to be considered for publication in special issues of well-known international journals.
