(More to come)


The Internet has revolutionized the globalized society and enabled the growth of infrastructures, applications, and technologies that significantly enhance global interactions and collaborations that have significant impact on society. Unprecedented cyber-social and cyber-physical infrastructures and systems that span geographic boundaries are possible because of the Internet and the growing number of collaboration enabling technologies. Individuals and organizations have increasingly relied on electronic and/or Internet-enabled collaboration between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and/or autonomous robots to achieve higher productivity and produce collaboratively developed 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 platforms. Future collaboration and Internet computing solutions that further the goal of achieving the full potential of global level collaboration require advancements in networking, technology and systems, user interfaces and interaction, cooperation and collaboration paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and tools.

IEEE CIC has been conceived as the key venue to serve as a premier international forum for discussion among academic and industrial researchers, practitioners, and students interested in Internet technologies, applications and services, collaborative networking, technology and systems, and applications.

Several Special Issues in Journal are being planned
(For IEEE CIC2016, special issues were for
- IEEE Internet Computing
- Int'l Journal of Cooperative Info. Systems

Important Dates

Full Paper submission deadline: 20 May 2017
Notification of acceptance: 25 July 2017
Camera Ready Submission: 10 August 2017

Industry Track Papers

We would like to solicit papers that focus on design, implementation and deployment of solutions related to Collaboration and Internet Computing within the industrial or government environments. The papers submitted to this track are expected to advance practical and applied research focused on the use of CIC technologies, and real world CIC relevant networks, systems applications. Applications, such as: Internet enabled collaborative e-commerce, medical and pharmaceutical, defense, critical cyber-physical infrastructures, public policy, finance, engineering, environment, manufacturing, telecommunications, and government.

The Industry/Government Track will include papers selected through separate set of reviewers. Authors must clearly indicate sub-areas their papers are to be evaluated in because distinct criteria may be used for reviewing different category of submissions:


Deployed systems that are aim to provide real practical value to industry, Government, or other organizations, or communities. The papers should point out how the deployed system explicitly leverage CIC technologies or describe either qualitatively (lessons learnt, deployment experiences, etc.) or quantitatively the effect of use of CIC relevant technology in operational environments.


Newer applications that use collaboration and internet computing as central themes are expected here. The authors should clearly demonstrate value and interest to Industry, Government of society (e.g., scientific or medical professions; critical infrastructures). Papers that describe infrastructure development and deployment that enables the large-scale deployment of CIC technologies or their validation are also in these areas.


IEEE CIC 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 no longer than 10 pages in two-column IEEE proceeding format. The papers can be submitted in regular track or Industry/Application track.

Workshops Proposals:

Proposals for half-day or full day workshops that focus on IEEE CIC 2016 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 relevant to Collaboration and Internet Computing 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).
