CABS 2014: Call for Papers
5th ACM International Conference on Collaboration Across Boundaries (CABS): Culture, Distance and Technology 
August 20-22, 2014, Kyoto, Japan

Collaboration across Boundaries: Culture, Distance, & Technology 2014 (CABS 2014) is an international and interdisciplinary conference focused on exploring the nature and ways to facilitate intercultural collaboration, including improvements enabled by technology. CABS 2014 is the 5th international conference in the series formerly held as International Conference on Intercultural Collaboration (ICIC). CABS aims to be a multidisciplinary forum that integrates the socio-cultural and technical perspectives, with the objective of exchanging the latest results of studying and supporting intercultural collaboration.

Full Papers
Full papers must present original work with contributions to research and practice of intercultural collaboration. All full papers will be evaluated using a double-blind review process. Accepted authors have the option of having their paper included or NOT to be included in the ACM digital library (http://portal.acm.org/). If the authors choose not to have their full paper included, only the abstract of the paper will be included in the ACM Digital Library. Those unpublished papers can be re-submitted and published at other conference proceedings (including ACM conferences) or journals. Full papers can be up to 10 pages long. Submission for a full paper should be thoroughly anonymized and formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI Publications Format using the SIGCHI Papers Template. Papers should be submitted through the Precision Conference System (www.precisionconference.com/~cabs). Please see the SIGCHI author instruction page (http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform) for more information and the downloadable templates.

To facilitate the interdisciplinary reviewing process, authors of full papers are asked to categorize their papers by theme (one of three themes) to help us direct papers to the most appropriate reviewers. The three themes are: Communication & Management,
Computer-Mediated Collaboration, and Cross-linguistic Collaboration. Although some papers will fit within multiple themes and others may not be an ideal fit for any of them, we ask the authors to choose the closest theme. We will strive to recruit the most appropriate reviewers for all papers. Below are examples of types of contributions a paper in any of the three themes can make to CABS:

● DESCRIPTIONS of intercultural and multilingual experiences: Dynamics of global teams, social networks and communities of practice, globally distributed work in virtual context, language use in multicultural and global teams.
● METHODOLOGIES and frameworks for studying global collaboration: Developing instruments for measuring culture including surveys, experimental paradigms, computational frameworks, etc..
● THEORIES and models for understanding cultures such as modeling culture, intercultural collaboration, and language varieties.
● EMPIRICAL INVESTIGATIONS of intercultural collaboration: Field studies of intercultural collaboration in global organizations and/or in local communities, ethnographic studies on different infrastructure and media use across nations, laboratory studies on the use of technologies, etc..
● TRANSLATION and transition of language and practice: Use of language on the Internet, translating different norms and shaping new practices in global teams, issues of Translating language and practices, effects of e-learning on culture diversity.
● DOMAIN-SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS for collaboration across boundaries: Education/learning, global enterprise, information and knowledge management/sharing.
● INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES for collaboration across boundaries: HCI technologies, robots, conversational agents, language and speech technologies to overcome culture and language barriers.

Late-Breaking Papers (Work in Progress)
Authors are encouraged to submit their late-breaking papers to present as posters during the conference. Late-breaking papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library, if the authors wish to do so (see above). Late-breaking papers should be no longer than 4 two-column pages in length, formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI template. Please see the SIGCHI author instruction page (http://www.sigchi.org/publications/chipubform) for more information and downloadable templates. Late-Breaking Papers should be submitted through the Precision Conference System (www.precisionconference.com/~cabs). Late-breaking papers will not be blind reviewed. Authors should include their complete names and contact information at the top of their submitted PDF file. Submitted late-breaking papers will not be divided into three subcommittees. They will be reviewed by a panel of distinguished researchers in the area of intercultural collaboration.
