Associate Professor and NeXGSD’s PI Pernille Bjørn has recently been appointed Chair for CSCW2015 Student Reviewing Program. As the Chair she has contributed to a new concept called CSCW Reviewer Mentor Program and appeals to the CSCW community, including potential mentors as well as student reviewers. to sign up. Deadline is June 1st 2014.
The CSCW Reviewer Mentor Program is intended to create an opportunity for students to participate in the CSCW review process while getting guidance from senior reviewers. The idea is that a small pool of students within the CSCW field are matched with CSCW review mentors, who agree to support the student in writing good reviews. This has three purposes:
1) PC members who choose a student reviewer within the mentor program will know that the student will do a good review, since the mentor will see to that.
2) Students will have the opportunity to get feedback and discuss the reviewing process with the mentor and therefore become a better reviewer.
3) The students will become expert reviewers for future CSCW conferences!
At the CSCW conference, all participants in the reviewing mentoring program will be acknowledge for their work and efforts. Read more about how to sign-up as student/mentor and how mentors are assigned etc.
The 18th ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW 2015) will be held March 14-18, 2015 in Vancouver, Canada.
CSCW is the premier venue for presenting research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks. Bringing together top researchers and practitioners from academia and industry who are interested in the area of social computing, CSCW encompasses both the technical and social challenges encountered when supporting collaboration. The development and application of new technologies continues to enable new ways of working together and coordinating activities. Although work is an important area of focus for the conference, CSCW also embraces research and technologies supporting a wide variety of recreational and social activities using a diverse range of devices.
