Scope of Conference

Design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams. The 13th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design (CSCWD 2009) provides a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in different but related domains to confront research results and discuss key problems. 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, construction, 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 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. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE categorized conference proceedings and will be submitted for indexing to EI (Compendex), DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/conf/cscwd/index.html) 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 including IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part C.
