COSDA2007: The First International Workshop on Collaborative System Design and Applications
(In conjunction with ISDA'2007: http://www.isda07.eng.uerj.br/)
Joan Manuel Marquès
* SUPPORTED and CO-ORGANIZED by:
*SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES:
Collaborative systems have caused a drastic change in the way people focus work and learning, especially at a distance. P2P and grid middleware and applications have opened new interesting possibilities for collaboration and learning. P2P allowed collaborators to share their own resources, whereby grid facilitated the access to remote resources not affordable locally as well as the increase of the participants’ capacity to carry out specific tasks. Special emphasis is given to systems and applications that focus on participants that provide their own resources for the achievement of their goals. Another influencing issue concerns the analysis of both the systems performance and group interactions. The latter constitutes an important factor for group monitoring, support and performance.
This workshop aims at providing a forum for academic researchers, professionals and practitioners to exchange their experiences and their ideas about problems and solutions related to the design, development and use of groupware systems and applications. Researchers can report their ideas, models, designs and experiences on the proposed topics.
*TOPICS OF INTEREST:
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
· P2P and grid-based applications for collaboration/collaborative learning
· P2P and grid middleware for collaboration
· P2P and grid systems performance analysis
· Semantic grid and ontologies for collaboration/collaborative learning
· Collaborative applications and case studies
· Case studies and experiences in learning grid
· Nomadic and mobile collaborative work
· Multi-agent systems to support collaborative work
· Monitoring and analysis of group interactions
· Group awareness and scaffolding
· Self-properties in collaborative systems
· Distribution and replication of shared information

* Instructions to Authors
The manuscripts should closely reflect the final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings, which will be maximum 6 pages in IEEE double column format. Please format your paper, as described in the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines where you can find instructions (Word, PDF, Postscript).
See details at main conference website http://www.isda07.eng.uerj.br
All accepted papers (presented orally or as a poster) with paid registration will be included in the Proceedings of ISDA'07. COSDA 2007 papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
After the conference, authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for possible inclusion in special issues of a selection of international journals.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
All papers should be submitted electronically via the Online Paper Submission System.
The format of the initial submissions can be PDF. The file of the final accepted papers should be in either Word or Latex. After uploading the paper through the conference web site, please also send a copy of the paper to <email@example.com>
