Scope of Conference:

Design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams. The Thirteenth 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. CSCWD 2009 has a theme on Human Centered Collaborative Design, with an emphasis to improve the productivity of knowledge workers through CSCW. 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
  • Agents and multi-agent systems for cooperative design
  • Workflows for cooperative design
  • VR technologies for cooperative design
  • Grids, Web services, semantic Web for cooperative design
  • Mobile collaboration and applications
  • Collaborative networks and applications
  • Collaboration in manufacturing, 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, are 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.


Submission Web site:


Submission by e-mail: cscwd2009@nce.ufrj.br



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.
