Preliminary Call for DEMOS

(Proposal Submission Deadline: February 09, 2010)

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.

  1. Demo Title
