Call For Papers

Collaborative systems became a norm due to the globalization of services and infrastructures and to multinational corporation branches. While organizations and individuals relied on collaboration for decades, the advent of new technologies (Web services, Cloud computing, Service-oriented architecture, Semantics and Ontology, etc.) for inter- and intra- organization collaboration created an enabling environment for advanced collaboration.

As a consequence, new developments are expected from current networking and interacting technologies (protocols, interfaces, services, tools) to support the design and deployment of a scalable collaborative environments. Innovative systems and applications design, including collaborative robots, autonomous systems, and consideration for dynamic user behavior is the trend.

COLLA 2011 initiates a series of events dedicated to advanced collaborative networks, systems and applications, focusing on new mechanisms, infrastructures, services, tools and benchmarks.

We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions.
