Call for Participation

The ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work (GROUP) is a premier yet intimate and welcoming venue for research on Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Sociotechnical Studies, Practice-Centered Computing, Human Computer Interaction, Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, and related endeavors. GROUP 2022 works to integrate new hybrid participation formats and encourage research into broader questions across society and computing, while being truly international and interdisciplinary in organizational structure, as well as in participants.

Key goals for the program are to encourage and facilitate researchers within CSCW, practice-centered computing, and sociotechnical studies to interact and to present recent research contributions. We also encourage research contributions from interdisciplinary groups to present work that might be difficult to place within one simple category. We are open to diverse and innovative research methods, and to contributions across broad areas such as systems, society, participation, critique, collaboration, and human interaction. GROUP 2022 in particular would like to encourage cross-disciplinary research across computing, social science, law, and algorithmic systems design, as well as researchers from industry, academia, government, and other interested groups to participate.

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Theoretical, methodological, and/or conceptual contributions about key concepts relevant to CSCW and HCI, including critique.
  • Social, behavioral, and computational studies of collaboration and communication.
  • Technical architectures supporting collaboration.
  • New tools/toolkits for collaborative technologies.
  • Ethnographic studies of collaborative practices.
  • Coordination and workflow technology.
  • Social computing and contexts of collaboration.
  • Current work in, and future visions of, practice-centered computing.
  • Social justice, ethical dimensions, and related issues in CSCW, HCI, and/or sociotechnical systems.
  • Online communities, including issues of privacy, identity, trust, and participation.
  • Cooperative knowledge management.
  • Algorithmic decision-support systems, automation, and human-AI collaboration.
  • Civic technologies and their uses.
  • Organizational issues of technology design, use, or adaptation.
  • Strategies for use of technology in business, government, and newer forms of organizations.
  • The ethical conduct of research studying group work and sociotechnical systems.
  • Emerging technologies and their design, use, or appropriation in work, home, leisure, entertainment, or education.
  • Learning at the workplace (CSCL at work, Technology-Enhanced Learning, TEL).
  • Co-located and geographically-distributed teams, global collaboration.
  • Cultural and cross-cultural collaboration and communication.
  • Mobile and wearable technologies in collaboration.
  • Innovative forms of human computer interaction for cooperative technologies.

Authors submitting a research article, note, or design fiction should use the ACM Small template. Below you can find detailed information depending on whether you use Word, LaTeX, or Overleaf. Please note that all other contributions (workshops, posters, doctoral consortium etc.) use a different template, check their call for participation for further information.

Word authors: Because GROUP papers are published in PACM HCI that uses the Sheridan service, authors need to use the old interim ACM Small template, which is no longer publicized on ACM websites. Depending on your operating system, please use the following links to access the template:

LaTeX authors need to use the template which is available at, and insert the acmsmall call. /p>

Overleaf authors need to use the template at , and use the acmsmall call.
