Preliminary Call for Poster Papers and Posters
(Paper Submission Deadline: December 1, 2009)
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS 2010) is to address, explore
and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in collaborative enterprises, their modeling and simulation,
design and use, and their impact. The conference will include a session for poster presentations.
CTS 2010 is soliciting poster papers and posters on all CTS related topics for the posters session. The posters
session is an effective and interactive forum for presenting works addressing preliminary results, innovative ideas,
work in progress, late-breaking results, collaboration tools, platforms and products, and other works, possibly not
suitable for a formal full paper. Posters will be held in a special session where presenters will demonstrate their
work directly to symposium attendees, and will remain in place during the remainder of the symposium.
TOPICS INCLUDE (but are not limited to):
All CTS related topics.
POSTER PAPERS AND POSTERS SUBMISSION
Poster papers and posters should be submitted using the conference software system on the CTS 2010 web site.
Poster papers and poster proposal submissions are due December 01, 2009. Please specify clearly in the Notes
section of the submission form as well as on the submission that you wish your submission to be considered
strictly as poster paper or poster. This is very important. Apart from that, please note that the Program
Committee may decide that a regular paper will be accepted as a poster paper rather than a regular paper. Authors
would be informed in such a case.
Poster paper submissions are at least 3 pages in length and up to 6 pages, without additional fees charged. They
are reviewed through the same procedure that regular papers are reviewed. Poster paper submission should
include a cover page with title, authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, and email
addresses. Please indicate clearly the corresponding author. Include up to 6 keywords from the topics list and an
abstract of no more than 450 words describing your work. Please submit an electronic copy of your full draft
manuscript (at least 3 pages in length and up to 6 pages in the posted IEEE format, single-spaced, double-column,
including figures, tables, and references) using the conference web site submission link at
http://cisedu.us/cis/cts/10/main/callForPapers.jsp. Please make sure to indicate on the manuscript that the
submission is for poster paper under names and affiliations. CTS will provide award to the Best Poster Paper.
Poster proposals require only one page abstract submission with title, authors and their affiliations, addresses,
and email addresses. Please indicate clearly the corresponding author. Please submit an electronic copy of your
full draft manuscript in the posted IEEE format, single-spaced, double-column, including figures, tables, and
references using the conference web site submission link at http://cisedu.us/cis/cts/10/main/callForPapers.jsp.
Please make sure to indicate that the submission is for poster under names and affiliations.
Electronic submissions will be accepted only in PDF format, uploaded to the web site above. Consistent with
standard practice, each submitted poster paper or poster proposal will receive a minimum of three reviews. Poster
papers and posters will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. All accepted poster papers and posters in the Symposium are required to be presented and will be
included in the conference proceedings. If accepted, the work will be presented using a poster format, which will
be made available at the web site too, to develop the poster for presentation at the symposium.
