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 a
multidisciplinary, 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, www.criwg.org, 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.

For the first time, CRIWG will be held in conjunction with the Brazilian
Symposium on Collaborative Systems (SBSC 2011), fostering collaboration
between communities.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
=====================
Accepted papers will be published by Springer as part of their Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series.

Electronic paper submissions are accepted in two categories: full
papers and work in progress papers. Full papers have a length of up to
16 pages based on mature and finished research while work in progress
papers should have a maximum length of 8 pages, both of them following
the Springer LNCS format. Both full and work in progress papers will
appear in the proceedings.

We will use a double-blind reviewing process. Please, do not include
the author's name and affiliation in the submitted paper itself. As
a result of the reviewing process, the Program Committee may suggest
changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including the
category of the paper. In this case, a paper will be conditionally
accepted. The PC Chairs will decide on the final acceptance or rejection,
based on the analysis of the revised paper.

The format for the final version will be the Springer LNCS format,
following the templates provided for MS Word and Latex.

Springer LNCS templates can be found here:
