Workshops and Special Sessions
The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS 2010) Organizing
Committee invites proposals for workshops and special sessions to be held in conjunction with the
CTS 2010 Symposium.
Workshops and special sessions provide an opportunity for researchers to present results and
participate in focused discussions of timely topics on various areas of collaboration computing
systems and technologies. They are to establish a common understanding of a certain aspect, to
share experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other, to identify open
problems and/or to explore future directions of research.
A workshop will typically be a full day (10-16 papers). A special session will typically have
4-6 papers. Workshops and special sessions will be published as part of the CTS 2010
The workshops and special sessions are considered part of the overall CTS Symposium and hence
included in the symposium registration. For each workshop or special session, at least one
organizer must commit to attending and running the workshop or session.
Requirements for submission of a
workshop or special session proposal:
All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail as a .doc attachment. Samples of previous
proposals can be found on the CTS 2010 web site at
