If it's a premier venue for research, you can bet Cornell University will be there. The annual ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing – CSCW – is no different; it is the venue for research in the design and use of technologies that affect groups, organizations, communities, and networks. 

This November, Cornell scholars – nearly 50 of them, from across University departments and spanning Big Red's two campuses – converge on Austin, Texas, for a formidable showing at CSCW. All told, Cornell's CSCW contributions this year include 15 refereed papers, a Best Paper, three Honorable Mentions, and much more. Of course, we are particularly proud of the impressive assemblage of Information Science faculty, students, and alumni represented in this year's conference.

Saddle up, Cornellians. We're Texas-bound.
