Preliminary Call for
(Proposal Submission Deadline: February 09, 2010)
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 environments, their modeling and
simulation, design and use, and their impact. The Symposium
will be held on May 17-21, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Real experimentation has proven to be a fundamental methodology to
evaluate collaboration technologies and systems. Early
prototyping is an outstanding way to understand real user requirements
and help adoption of technologies by the mass market. In
addition, the demo session showing real-systems prototypes at work will
naturally complement the technical session, thus stimulating
discussions among attendees.
As in every year, the Symposium will feature state-of-the-art set of
demo presentations. The CTS 2010 Organizing Committee invites
proposals and ideas for demos to be held in conjunction with the
Symposium. Topics may cover different levels, ranging from
introductory to highly advanced. Demos will address relevant
subject areas within collaboration. Typically, 30-minute
demos are planned but others will be considered. Proposals
will be evaluated by members of the Organizing Committee.
If you are interested in presenting a demo at this symposium or you
have an idea for a demo you would like to see offered please contact
the Demos Co-Chairs.
(but are not limited to):
All CTS related topics.
