The 7th International Conference on Collaborative Computing: Networking,
Applications and Work sharing
                Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society (pending), Create-Net and
        the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and
Telecommunications Engineering
                                Orlando, FL, USA, Oct 15-18, 2011


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

The Seventh International Conference on Collaborative Computing
(CollaborateCom 2011) 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 10 pages in two-column IEEE
proceeding 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
WORKSHOPS: Proposals for half-day or full day workshops that focus on
CollaborateCom 2011 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 panellists to the
Panel Chairs.
TUTORIALS: 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).
SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: All paper, poster, panel, and workshop
submissions will be handled electronically. Please visit the conference
website www.CollaborateCom.org for detailed submission requirements and
PUBLICATION: All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed
by technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite. All
accepted papers will made available in IEEE Xplore. Approval has been
granted for a special issue on CollaborateCom'11 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.
Other Journal venues are being pursued.
