The 4th International Conference on Collaborative Computing:
Networking, Applications and Worksharing
Sponsored by, Create-Net and the International Communication Sciences and
Technology Association (ICST))

The Regal Sun Resort, Orlando, FL, USA, November 13-16, 2008


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 Fourth International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2008) 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.

PAPERS: 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 a maximum of ten pages in IEEE 
double column format.

POSTERS: 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 for half-day or full day workshops that focus on CollaborateCom08 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 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.

INDUSTRY SESSION: We are soliciting industry papers describing innovative applications, case studies and best 
practices with a goal of fostering collaboration between the research community and the private sector. Industrial 
submissions may be either full-length papers or extended abstracts up to 4 pages, and should be submitted to the 
Industrial Program Chairs.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: All paper, poster, panel, and workshop submissions will be handled electronically. 
Please visit the conference website for detailed submission requirements and procedures.

PUBLICATION: All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members 
and the reviewers they invite. Accepted papers and posters will be published by the IEEE in the conference 
proceedings and placed on IEEE Xplore. They will also be indexed by DBLP and the Engineering Information (EI). 
A selected number of best papers will be considered for publication in a leading journal.
