Over the last two decades, many organizations 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 from general purpose
tools to specialized collaboration grids. Future collaboration solutions
that fully realize the promises of electronic collaboration require
advancements in networking, technology and systems, user interfaces and
interaction paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific
components and tools.The eighth International Conference on Collaborative
Computing (CollaborateCom 2012) will continue to serve as a premier
international forum for discussion among academic and industrial
researchers, practitioners, and students interested in collaborative
networking, technology and systems, and applications.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-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 and cloud computing environments
-Collaboration in data-intensive scientific discovery
-Collaboration in health-care environments
-Collaborative e-education, e-learning, and collaborative computing in
large scale digital libraries
-Collaborative mobile networks and infrastructures
-Collaborative technologies for fast creation and deployment of new mobile
-Collaborative, location-aware mobile systems/applications
-Collaboration techniques in data-intensive computing and cloud computing
-Collaborative sensor networks, unmanned air and ground vehicle networks &
-Collaborative, context-aware infrastructure
-Collaborative social networks & web-based collaboration
-Computer supported collaborative work with distributed systems
-Distributed collaborative workflows
-Data management and middleware support for collaborative information
systems -Energy management for collaborative networks
-Group-driven composition of systems from components
-Human-robot collaboration
-Human-centric ubiquitous collaboration
-Methodologies and tools for design and analysis of collaborative user
-Models & mechanisms for real-time collaboration
-Multi-agent technology and software technologies for collaborative
networking and applications
-Peer-to-peer and overlay networks, systems, & applications
-P2P platforms for supporting collaboration
-Security, privacy and trust management in collaborative networks,
systems, and applications
-Simulation, performance evaluation, experiments, and case studies of
collaborative networks and applications
-Software design, testing, and experimentation technology for
collaborative networking and applications
-Theoretical foundations and algorithms for collaborative networks,
applications, and worksharing
-Tools for collaborative decision making processes
-Trustworthy collaborative business processing in virtual organizations
-Visualization techniques, interaction devices and visual languages for
collaborative networks and applications
-Web services technologies and service-oriented architectures for
collaborative networking and applications
-Workflow management for collaborative networks/systems

We invite original research papers that have not been previously
published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Contributions addressing all areas related to collaborative networking,
technology and systems, and applications are solicited. The submitted
manuscript should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the
Proceedings. Submitted papers should be 10 pages in two-column IEEE
proceeding format. The papers can be submitted in regular track or
Industry/Application track.


All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed. All
accepted papers will be made available in IEEE Xplore and other external
indexing services (DBLP database, ZB1Math/CompuServe, IO-Port, EI, Scopus,
INSPEC, ISI proceeding - pending approval). Approval is being granted for
a special issue on CollaborateCom'12 to be published on ACM/Springer
MOBILE NETWORKS & APPLICATIONS (MONET). 4-6 papers on the themes related
to MONET will be selected for publication on this issue. Springer MONET
and IJCIS special issues have been confirmed.


The conference will include a poster session that highlights recent and
on-going research, experiments, and provocative ideas that have not been
published elsewhere. Poster submissions will be reviewed and one page
summaries of accepted posters will appear in the conference proceedings.

[Workshops proposals]

Proposals for half-day or full day workshops that focus on
CollaborateCom 2012 related themes are solicited. Workshop proposals
should be at most five pages, including a biographical sketch of each
instructor, and submitted to the Workshop Chairs. Proposals will be
evaluated based on the expertise and experience of the organizers and the
relevance and importance of the subject matter. Please refer to call for
workshop proposals for details.

[Panels proposals]

Proposals for panel discussions that focus on future visions for
collaborative networking, applications, and worksharing are preferred.
Potential panel organizers should submit a panel proposal of at most five
pages, including biographical sketches of the proposed panelists to the
Panel Chairs.

[Tutorial proposals]

Proposals for full and half-day tutorials are solicited. Tutorials are
intended to enhance the technical program, and as such they should be
relevant to collaborative computing, networking, worksharing, and
applications. Potential tutorial presenters should submit a tutorial
proposal of at most three pages, including: description of potential
audience and background knowledge expected from the audience, if any;
tutorial description; biographical sketch of presenter(s).

[Paper submission]

All paper, poster, panel, and workshop submissions will be handled
electronically. Please visit the conference website
www.CollaborateCom.org for detailed submission requirements and procedures.
