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 2nd International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2006) 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
- Autonomic computing and quality of services in collaborative
networks, systems, and applications
- Collaboration in pervasive computing applications
- Collaborative e-education, e-learning, and collaborative computing
in large scale digital libraries
- Collaborative mobile networks, sensor networks, unmanned air and
ground vehicle networks & applications
- Collaborative technologies for fast creation and deployment of new
- Computer Supported Collaborative Work with distributed systems
- Data management and middleware support for collaborative information
- Distributed technologies and architectures to support group
collaboration, activity, and awareness
- Empirical studies on distributed collaboration
- Energy management for collaborative networks
- Methodologies and tools for design and analysis of collaborative user
- Multi-agent technology and software technologies for collaborative
networking and applications
- Peer-to-peer and overlay networks, systems, and applications
- Security and trust management in collaborative networks, systems, and
- Simulation, performance evaluation, experiments, and trials of
collaborative networks and applications
- Software design, testing, and experimentation technology for
collaborative networking and applications
- Theoretical aspects of distributed collaboration
- Theoretical foundations and algorithms for collaborative networks,
- Trustworthy collaborative business processing in virtual
- Visualization techniques and visual languages for collaborative
networks and applications
- Web services technologies for collaborative networking and
- Workflow technology and workflow management for collaborative
All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite. All accepted papers will be made available in IEEE Xplore
, and then be indexed by Engineering Information (EI). 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 2006 experience. We look forward to
being your hosts at CollaborateCom 2006 in Atlanta.
