Workshop Theme:
The recent advances in networking have determined an increasing use of information technology to support distributed cooperative applications. Several novel applications have emerged in this area, like computer supported collaborative work (CSCW), large scale distributed virtual world, collaborative recommender systems, collaborative learning systems.
The definition of these applications requires to afford several challenges, like the definition of user interfaces, of coordination protocols, and of proper middle-ware and architectures supporting distributed cooperation. Collaborative applications may greatly benefits also from the support of cloud and P2P architectures. As a matter of fact, with the emergence of readily available cloud platforms, collaborative applications developers have the opportunity of deploying their applications in the cloud, or by exploiting a hybrid P2P/Cloud architectures with dynamically adapting cloud support. This brings possibilities to smaller developers that were reserved for the big companies until recently. The integration of mobile/Cloud platforms for Collaborative Applications is another challenge for the widespread of these applications. This track aims to provide a venue for researchers to present and discuss important aspects of P2P/Cloud collaborative applications and of the platforms supporting these applications. The track's aim is to investigate open challenges for such applications, related to both the applications design and to the definition of proper architectures. Some important challenges are,for instance, collaborative protocols design, latency reduction/hiding techniques for guaranteeing real time constraints, large-scale processing of user information, privacy and security issues, state consistency/persistence.
The track will both present assessment of current state and introduce further directions.

We invite original papers previously unpublished. Full papers should not exceed 12 pages and follow the
Springer LNCS Style. We solicit the submission of papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity of exposition. Papers should be prepared as the .pdf files and submitted electronically to the LSDVE 2014 online submission system. Submission of the paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors must register and present the paper at the workshop. Alla accepted and presented papers will be included in the Workshop proceedings that will be published in a separate LNCS Europ-par 2014 Workshop volume. A selection of the papers submitted at the workshop will be included in Special Issue of Springer Journal Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications (PPNA).
