Call for Tracks, Symposia, Workshops and Special Sessions
The 2014 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems
May 19-23, 2014
The Commons Hotel
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
(Proposal Submission Deadline: October 30, 2013)
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 15th International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2014) Organizing Committee invites proposals for tracks, symposia, workshops and special sessions to be held in conjunction with the CTS 2014 Conference.
Tracks, symposia, 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, theoretical or applied. 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 track or symposium will typically go for more than one day. A workshop will typically be a full day (10-16 papers). A special session will typically have 4-6 papers. Tracks, symposia, workshops and special sessions may also have invited speakers, panels or forums, demos, etc. Tracks, symposia, workshops and special sessions will be fully refereed by at least three qualified reviewers and their accepted papers will be published as part of the CTS 2014 proceedings.
The tracks, symposia, workshops and special sessions are considered part of the overall CTS Conference and hence included in the Conference’s registration. For each track, symposium, workshop or special session, at least one organizer must commit to attending and running the respective track, symposium, workshop or special session.
Requirements for submission of a Track, Symposium, 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 2013 web site at http://cts2013.cisedu.info/ under the Symposia, Workshops & Sessions menus.
Tracks proposals will be reviewed by CTS 2014 Tracks Chairs based on criteria such as: the likely interest and relevance of the track to CTS and its attendees; the breadth and depth of the topic proposed, its timeliness, and objectives: the expertise and credential of the organiser(s) and the program committee; and the overall plan of the track.
If approved, the organizers agree to strictly follow all professional standards and ethics in performing their role as well as abide by the CTS 2014 rules and policies, including its program and activities.
