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 Tenth International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2014) 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:

- Participatory sensing, crowdsourcing, and citizen science
- 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 social media
- Big data and spatio-temporal data in collaborative environments/systems
- Collaboration techniques in data-intensive computing and cloud computing
- Collaborative e-education, e-learning, and collaborative computing in large scale digital libraries
- Collaboration in health-care environments
- Collaborative information seeking
- Collaborative mobile networks and infrastructures
- Collaborative technologies for fast creation and deployment of new mobile services
- Collaborative sensor networks, unmanned air and ground vehicle networks and applications
- Collaborative, context-aware infrastructure
- Collaborative, location-aware mobile systems/applications
- Computer supported collaborative work with distributed systems
- Cyber-physical 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-centric ubiquitous collaboration
- Human-robot collaboration
- Internet of Things (IoT) and collaboration
- Methodologies and tools for design and analysis of collaborative user applications
- Models and mechanisms for real-time collaboration
- Multi-agent technology and software technologies for collaborative networking and applications
- Peer-to-peer and overlay networks, systems, and applications
- 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

[Industry Track Papers]

The Industry/Government Track solicits papers describing implementations of Collaborative Computing solutions
relevant to industrial or government settings. The primary emphasis is on papers that advance the understanding of
practical, applied, or pragmatic issues related to the use of Collaborative Computing technologies in industry and
government and highlight new research challenges arising from attempts to create such real applications.
Applications can be in any field including, but not limited to: e-commerce, medical and pharmaceutical, defense,
public policy, finance, engineering, environment, manufacturing, telecommunications, and government.

The Industry/Government Track will consist of competitively-selected contributed papers. Submitters must clearly
identify in which of the following sub-areas their paper should be evaluated as distinct review criteria will be
used to evaluate each category of submission.
- Deployed: Deployed systems that are providing real value to industry, Government, or other organizations or
professions. These deployed systems should point out how they explicitly leverage Collaborative Computing
technologies or describe either qualitatively (lessons learned, deployment experiences, etc.) or quantitatively
the impact of using Collaborative Computing technologies for enhancing operational systems.
- Emerging: Emerging applications and technology must have clear user interest and demonstrable value to Industry,
Government, or other users (e.g., scientific or medical professions) to distinguish them from research track papers,
or they must provide insight into issues and factors that affect the successful use of Collaborative Computing
technology and methods. Papers that describe infrastructure that enables the large-scale deployment of Collaborative
Computing techniques or external validation of Collaborative Computing technologies are in this area.


As in previous years, CollaborateCom 2014 will feature a best paper award and a best student paper award (to be
selected by the program committee). A paper is eligible for the best student paper award if the first author is a
full-time student at the time of submission. A partial travel grant will be offered to the winner student.

[Paper Submission]

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.
Please visit the conference website for detailed submission requirements and procedures.

[Workshops Proposals]

Proposals for half-day or full day workshops that focus on CollaborateCom 2014 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.

[Tutorials 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).

[Important Dates]

Abstract submission: 1 July 2014 (highly recommended)
Paper submission deadline (EXTENDED): 7 July 2014 (FIRM)
Notification of acceptance: 14 August 2014
