Networks and user applications have evolved from centralized computing platforms to distributed collaborative
computing services. Collaboration as a fundamental capability of networks represents a significant step forward.
Collaborative network nodes can jointly achieve advanced networking goals beyond relaying packets. Collaborative
user applications enable people and computers to work together more productively. Collaboration computing techniques
can also support intelligent reconfiguration and performance tuning of software, systems, overlay network architectures
and topologies to meet diverse and evolving application requirements.
The First International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2005) is being launched to serve
as a premier international forum for discussions among academic and industrial researchers, practitioners, and
students interested in collaborative networking, worksharing, and applications.
Contributions addressing all areas related to collaborative networking, applications and worksharing are solicited.
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Architectures, protocols, and enabling technologies for collaborative computing networks and systems
- Theoretical foundations and algorithms for collaborative networks, applications, and worksharing
- Peer-to-peer and overlay networks, systems, and applications
- Collaborative mobile networks, sensor networks, unmanned air and ground vehicle networks, and applications
- Collaborative technologies for fast creation and deployment of new mobile services
- Workflow technology and workflow management for collaborative network management
- Web services technologies for collaborative networking and applications
- Multi-agent technology and software technologies for collaborative networking and applications
- Data management and middleware support for collaborative information systems
- Trustworthy collaborative business processing in virtual organizations
- Security and trust management in collaborative networks, systems, and applications
- Autonomic computing and quality of services in collaborative networks, systems, and applications
- Energy management for collaborative networks
- Collaborative e-education, e-learning, and collaborative computing in large scale digital libraries
- Collaboration in pervasive computing applications
- Software design, testing, and experimentation technology for collaborative networking and applications
- Simulation, performance evaluation, experiments, and trials of collaborative networks and applications
- Visualization techniques and visual languages for collaborative networks and applications

December 19th - 21st, 2005
Conference in San Jose.
All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite. The proceedings will be a IEEE Publication
and the papers, including workshop, will be listed on the IEEE Xplore
and IEEE digital library. A selected number of best papers will be considered for publication in a leading journal.
We are steadily getting more relevant information on our web pages. Check the news page to get an overview of the latest conference events and new information on the conference web site.
On the web pages, you will also find information about the conference hotel and venue and some travel and tourist
information which will enable you to start planning for an exciting CollaborateCom 2005 experience. We look forward to
being your hosts at CollaborateCom 2005 in San Jose.
