PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 12th International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2011) Organizing Committee invites proposals for symposia, workshops and special sessions to be held in conjunction with the CTS 2011 Conference.
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. 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 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. Symposia, workshops and special sessions may also have invited speakers, panels, or forums. Symposia, workshops and special sessions will be fully refereed and their accepted papers will be published as part of the CTS 2011 proceedings.
The symposia, workshops and special sessions are considered part of the overall CTS Conference and hence included in the Conference’s registration. For each symposium, workshop or special session, at least one organizer must commit to attending and running the respective symposium, workshop or special session.
