Conference Call for Papers

Promoting productive collaborative interaction in varied contexts requires studying the interdependencies of the complex ecosystems in which collaborative learning takes place (e.g. school, museums, work, play). In Cognitive Science, research under the banner of 4E cognition favors newer paradigms that take into account the role of the body (embodied), the interactions between an organism and its environment (enactive), and the elements and aspects in the environment itself (extended and embedded). At this year’s CSCL, we propose 4E learning as our theme. Submissions that present results on collaborative learning regarding some combination of embodied, enactive, extended, and embedded learning are welcome. Such a focus translates to studies of various interdependencies in the learning process: social, emotional, cultural, linguistic, cognitive, and technological. Finally, treating 4E learning as inherently collaborative means that as a CSCL community, we need to understand this phenomenon in settings both with and without technology. It is important that as CSCL researchers, we build on work that while not computer-supported has implications for design and research in computer-supported collaborative learning settings. In considering collaborative learning as the interplay of factors in a complex system, we aim to create novel interdisciplinary integrations and thereby extend and reinforce the CSCL Learning Sciences community with new ideas.

Overview

Top Research Topics at Computer Supported Collaborative Learning?

  • Collaborative learning (25.14%)
  • Knowledge management (23.07%)
  • Mathematics education (15.24%)

The conference primarily focuses on research topics in Collaborative learning, Knowledge management, Mathematics education, Human–computer interaction and Pedagogy. The Collaborative learning works featured in the conference incorporate elements from Context (language use), Educational technology, Multimedia and Team learning. The conference explores topics in Educational technology which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Cooperative learning, Teaching method, Synchronous learning and Experiential learning.

Research on Cooperative learning addressed in it frequently intersections with the field of Computer-mediated communication. Knowledge management research is the primary subject tackled in the event with a focus on Knowledge building.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • A systemic and cognitive view on collaborative knowledge building with wikis (436 citations)
  • Technology affordances for intersubjective meaning making: A research agenda for CSCL (424 citations)
  • Exploring foundations for computer-supported collaborative learning (358 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Computer Supported Collaborative Learning:

The most cited publications investigate studies in Educational technology, Collaborative learning, Cooperative learning, Knowledge management and Computer-mediated communication. Educational technology, which is essential to research in the topics of Pedagogy and Mathematics education, is the main topic in the most cited papers. The works on Collaborative learning tackled in the conference publications bring together disciplines like Social psychology, Team learning, Human–computer interaction, Scripting language and Coding (social sciences).

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2015 edition, 10.13% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 35.21% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 18.31% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 23.24% of all publications and 23.24% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
