SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The 2014 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2014) is targeted “to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in collaboration enterprises, their modeling and simulation, design and use, applications, and their impact.”
The 2014 Workshop on Collaboration: Human-Centered Issues & Interactivity Design (C.HCI&ID 2014) focuses specifically on the human-centered issues connected to collaboration technologies and system. We are especially interested in the contexts of how human-computer interaction (HCI) and interactivity design are implicated in collaboration. The human-centered issues include the social implications of technologies and systems for collaboration, the sustainability implications, ethics, privacy, diversity and social inclusion, health, and other concerns at the nexus of human collaboration needs and practices and the mediation of collaborations by technologies and systems.
CALL FOR PAPERS
This Workshop on Collaboration: Human-Centered Issues & Interactivity Design (C.HCI&ID 2014) will be held as part of the 2014 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2014). We anticipate and especially invite papers from a broad range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary backgrounds. Special emphasis in the reviewing will be given to allow for transdisciplinarity in the contributions with wide tolerance and acceptance of the differences between specific disciplinary mores of methods and domains of expertise. Contributions may take the form of original research reporting, essays and interpretations, conceptual design studies, design case studies, experience studies, and other forms. Regardless of contribution form, accepted papers will be archived in the IEEE library (to be confirmed) and are expected to be of archival scholarly quality.
This year the track has a special theme: Collaboration for Sustainability and Adaptation to Climate Change. Papers relating to this special theme are particularly encouraged.
In addition to the special theme, C.HCI&ID topics include, but are not limited to, the following concerns related to Human-Centered Issues and Interactivity Design in the context of Technology-mediated Collaborations:
ARCHIVAL PAPER SUBMISSION
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to human-centered issues and interactivity design implicated in collaboration. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages—although submissions of 4-5 pages are welcomed (short papers)—using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Poster papers and poster (please refer to http://cts2014.cisedu.info/home/posters for the submission details) will also be accepted. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Authors are invited to submit a PDF copy of their manuscript to the Workshop using the following link https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=chciid2014. If the submission is for a short paper, a poster paper, or a poster, please indicate that on the manuscript as well.
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, contributions, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the Workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2014 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in major indexing services accordingly.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
