Over the last two decades, many organization and individuals have relied on electronic collaboration between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and/or autonomous robots to achieve higher productivity and produce joint products that would have been impossible to develop without the contributions of multiple collaborators. Technology has evolved from standalone tools, to open systems supporting collaboration in multi-organizational settings, and form general purpose tools to specialized collaboration grids. Future collaboration solutions that fully realize the promises of electronic collaboration requires advancements in networking, technology and systems, user interfaces and interaction paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and tools. 

Scope

The 4th International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2008) will continue to serve as a premier international forum for discussions among academic and industrial researchers, practitioners, and students interested in collaborative networking, technology and systems, 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 mobile services
  • Computer Supported Collaborative Work with distributed systems
  • Data management and middleware support for collaborative information systems
  • Distributed technologies and architectures to support group collaboration, activity, and awareness
  • Empirical studies on distributed collaboration
  • Energy management for collaborative networks

Publication

All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite. All accepted papers will be published be a well-recognized publisher, 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.

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 2008 experience. We look forward to being your hosts at CollaborateCom 2008 in Orlando, Florida, USA.
