The conference will be hierarchically structured into 5 areas:
- Collaborative applications
- Collaboration technology and systems
- Ubiquitous collaboration
- Interfaces and protocols for team and man-machine collaboration
The vice chairs that we choose to lead these areas will further refine the scope of the conference.
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 DBLP and Engineering Information (EI). A selected number of best papers will be considered for publication in a leading journal.
