Call For Papers

EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the event.


Throughout the year 2020, people around the world have witnessed the spreading of Covid-19 pandemic and the life losses at every corner of the world. The pandemic has changed the way people work, live and socialize with friends and family members. In order to support the change, new technologies and facilities are required to facilities people’s need, including how collaborative computing is designed and implemented. The theme of this year’s conference is “Collaboration for the Changing World”. New technologies, particularly non-contact communication, networking and worksharing technologies are encouraged to be investigated and disseminated in the academic and industry sectors. This would allow the professionals and industry to provide new solutions to support the medical care, smart manufacturing, intelligent logistics, legally sharing of data, and wisely use of unmanned vehicles to deliver the services to the points of needs.

The 17th International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2021) will be held in Suzhou, China, and 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.

Suzhou is famous for her artistic design of gardens and an international hub of intelligent manufacturing. She is ranked one of the top ten cities in the world leading the way to Industry 4.0. Suzhou is also a historical city in China with 2500 years history. It is called the paradise city of China, along with Hangzhou. It is the host of dozens of higher education institutions. It is a city with collaboration opportunities and plenty of resources for individual and family leisure.

Welcome to CollaborateCom 2021! Welcome to Suzhou!
