Papers and posters

Conference submissions are welcome on all topics of CSCL research. To be considered for inclusion in the conference, all long papers, short papers and poster papers must be submitted by November 1, 2010.  They must be complete and properly formatted when submitted. Long papers are limited to 8 pages; short papers are limited to 5 pages; posters are limited to 2 pages. The Program Committee reserves the right to determine whether a submitted paper is accepted for presentation as a long paper, short paper, or poster. All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings. Long papers will be presented in paper sessions. Short papers may be presented in an interactive format, with brief presentations and then round-table discussions. Poster papers will be displayed in large interactive poster sessions.

Symposia

Symposia are welcome on all issues of CSCL. To be considered for inclusion in the conference, symposia proposals must be submitted by November 1, 2010.  They must be complete and properly formatted when submitted. Symposia are limited to a total of 8 pages. Symposia should be interactive, collaborative events about a specific issue. Discussion among members of a panel and with the audience should be moderated to focus on certain positions or controversies. (A symposium is not a set of related papers; if you want to have a set of papers presented together, then submit each paper for review as a paper, and after the review send an email to the Program Committee requesting that the accepted papers be grouped together in one or more sessions—you may suggest a chair and/or discussant for the session.)

Submissions must adhere to the formatting guidelines in the template CSCL2011 Conference Publication Guidelines

Interactive Events, Demonstrations and CSCL in Practice Showcases

Interactive events, demonstrations and CSCL in Practice Showcases will be presented during the main conference sessions. This strand of activities aims to showcase design research in computer-supported collaborative learning research involving field-based educators and/or strong university-school partnerships. They are designed to encourage interaction, collaborative learning, and hands-on experience with innovative CSCL technologies or ideas. Proposals that showcase connecting computer-supported collaborative learning research to educational practice are particularly encouraged. If you are interested in presenting an interactive event or a demonstration, please submit a 5-page proposal by December 15, 2010.

Please refer to the details and proposal guidelines here CSCL2011 Practitioner strand proposals guidelines

Pre-conference Workshops and Tutorials

Full-day and half-day workshops will be held July 4-5, 2011. Workshops should be designed as collaborative knowledge-building sessions on a focused issue, where participants work together—e.g., analyzing data, discussing design criteria, collaborating on a research project. Tutorials should be designed as collaborative learning experiences for novices on a topic, technology, or methodology within CSCL, presented by experts. If you are interested in organizing a workshop or tutorial that addresses a particular issue in CSCL, please submit a proposal by December 15, 2010. (A workshop is not a set of related papers; if you want to have a set of papers presented together, then submit each paper for review as a paper, and after the review send an email to the Program Committee requesting that the accepted papers be grouped together in one or more sessions—you may suggest a chair and/or discussant for the session.)

Post-conference Activities in Mainland China

This series of conference activities to be held in three major cities in China is planned to build on the theme Connecting CSCL research to education policy and practice of the CSCL 2011 Conference in Hong Kong. It aims to draw on national and global exemplars of synergistic advances in CSCL and learning sciences research and educational policy and practice to explore and discuss the current state and the way forward for education developments in China.
