    CollaborateCom 2009
    The 5th International Conference on Collaborative Computing:
            Networking, Applications and Worksharing
 Sponsored by, Create-Net and the Institute for Computer Sciences,
    Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering
        (Pending Sponsorships: IEEE CS and ACM SIGCHI)
    Crystal City, Washington D.C., USA, November 11-14, 2009
    

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 Fifth International Conference on Collaborative Computing
(CollaborateCom 2009) 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
proceedings. 

WORKSHOPS: Proposals for half-day or full day workshops that focus on
CollaborateCom09 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). 

INDUSTRY PROGRAM: 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 www.CollaborateCom.org 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. All accepted papers will be published as IEEE proceedings
(pending approval of technical sponsorship from IEEE CS) and made
available in IEEE Xplore. Best Papers will be invited for publication in
an international journal (TBD).
