SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
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 adaptability 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.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Adaptation Methods & Techniques
Adaptive Group Structures
Adaptive Networks for Collaboration
Adaptive Man-Machine Systems
Dynamic Role/Task Assignment
Environment Information Acquisition
Individual Performance Models
Group Performance Models
Role Models for Adaptation
Role Engine Design for Adaptive Collaboration
Evaluation of Group Performance
Optimization of Group Performance
Adaptive User Interfaces
Infrastructures for Adaptive Collaboration
Support for Adaptive Collaboration
Adaptive Social Networks
User/Agent Information Acquisition
Adaptive Collaborative Learning
Adaptive Supply Chains and Logistics
Adaptive Production Systems
Measures and Monitors for Adaptive Systems
Adaptation for e-Business Processes and Operations
Application and Extension of the E-CARGO Model
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Adaptive Collaboration.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 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://cts2013.cisedu.info/home/posters for the posters submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Only PDF files will be accepted, sent as email attachment to the email above. 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 Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2013 Conference web site. 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 in major indexing services accordingly.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
