Workshop on Adaptive Collaboration (AC 2010)


As part of
The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS 2010)

Submission Deadline:  January 18, 2010

Adaptation is a special property of human beings as highly intelligent creatures. It is also an emerging requirement for contemporary collaboration-related and computer-based applications, such as Service Computing (SC) systems, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) systems, Man-Machine (MM) systems, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) systems, Sensor Network (SN) systems, Social Networks (SN) and production systems. Adaptive Collaboration (AC) is to provide general methodologies and mechanisms to support adaptivity of collaboration so as to improve the group performance of collaboration. Adaptive collaboration is significantly challenging. For instance, user/agent modelling, user/agent information acquisition, environment information acquisition, group structures, role/task models, user/agent evaluation, and dynamic role/task assignment must be addressed in order to facilitate adaptive collaboration.

The workshop will present techniques, methodologies, algorithms, system integrations, and architectures issues related to Adaptive Collaboration.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
Solicited topics are welcomed to address adaptation from the viewpoint of collaboration and include, but are not limited to:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Adaptive Collaboration. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 10 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged at additional fee. Some papers can be accepted as short papers, with a total length reduced to 5 pages. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizer at and . Paper reception will be acknowledged by e-mail within 2 days.

Only PDF files will be accepted, sent by email to the workshop organizers. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the Symposium proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2010 Symposium web site later. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed accordingly.
