Computers and the Internet are becoming increasingly important mediums
for social interaction. Many types of relationships including business,
casual, and intimate are formed and maintained through the use of
computer-mediated communication (CMC). The CSI 2K3 conference is an effort to bring together leading researchers in the field of CMC to discuss the psychological implications of technology on social
relationships. The conference will feature presentations by:

Tom Postmes (University of Amsterdam)
Susan Weisband (Case Western Reserve University)

We also invite individuals to submit proposals for poster or 10 minute
oral presentations on topics related to the area of computer-supported
social interaction. The poster/paper sessions will be scheduled around
the featured presentations. We welcome proposals from any discipline
relevant to the theme of the conference; submissions can be of an
empirical nature or a theoretical/conceptual paper. Students are
particularly encouraged to submit poster proposals.

*Electronic team performance
