Welcome to CRIWG 2011!


The CRIWG Conference on Collaboration and Technology seeks scientific papers that inform the design, development, deployment, and use of collaboration technology (groupware) and the work practices they support. Founded in 1995, CRIWG has become a significant forum for researchers and professionals to exchange ideas and experiences about problems and solutions related to collaboration technology.

Most challenges in the collaboration technology field require amultidisciplinary, multi-methodological approach. CRIWG seeks papers on groupware from a wide variety of academic perspectives and epistemologies, ranging from collaborative and exploratory research, to theory building and testing, applied research, design science, engineering, and innovative evaluation methods. Researchers can report their ideas, theories, models, designs and experimental results to CRIWG either by submitting full paper contributions, in case of mature works, and shorter papers reporting innovative work in progress. As in previous years, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions to selected journals. PhD students are invited to present their research in the doctoral colloquium.

The CRIWG conference is supported by the Collaboration Research International Working Group,, an open community of researchers. Traditionally, CRIWG is organized in remote places alternating between the Americas and Europe, with a small number of presentations, fostering critical discussion, team building and collaboration. The location selected for the CRIWG 2011 conference is Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro will organize the conference.
