* Keynote Speaker (confirmed):
Nikolaos Antonopoulos, Professor and Head of School at the University of Derby, UK

* Conference background and goals
The IADIS Collaborative Technologies conference is dedicated to the timely publication of completed and/or work in progress research related contributions to the concepts, theory, modeling, specification, implementation and evaluation of collaborative systems, technologies and their wider applications in the information society.
The conference pays particular attention to the ‘wider’ dimension as a means to diversify it and broaden the applicability and scope of the current body of knowledge in the area of applied collaborative systems and technologies. Thus, the conference covers both technical and non-technical aspects of the collaborative nature of today’s information society. Although its primarygoal is to provide an international forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art practices and empirical research results in collaborative technologies, it also aims prompting future direction for the development of the information society community as a means of promoting and sustaining a network of excellence in the area.
