Please Note: The intention of the organizing committee is to hold CollabTech 2022 as a hybrid conference with the possibility to alternatively attend it physically or virtually. If the pandemic is not attenuated, CollabTech will take place in a fully blown virtual conference format.
CollabTech is a major forum for both academics and practitioners to exchange their experiences related to the development and use of collaboration technology and social computing. It has a strong focus on technology design and development. Most published papers propose innovative technical + human + organizational approaches to expand collaboration support, often backed up by theory brought from various disciplines including computer science, management science, design science, cognitive science, and social science. However, the conference also seeks papers with theory, models, design principles, methodologies, and case studies that contribute to a better understanding of the complex interrelations between collaboration and technology. Considering the heterogeneity of research in collaboration and technology, researchers may address the validation of their work through multiple approaches including laboratory experiments, fieldwork, analytic evaluations, case studies, prototyping, and empirical tests.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Collaboration frameworks, toolkits and design patterns
Mobile/Web collaboration devices and systems
Physically-embodied collaboration devices and systems
VR/AR for collaboration
Multi-agent/AI systems supporting collaboration
Collaboration through social media

Accepted papers will be published by Springer as part of their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Electronic paper submissions are accepted in the following categories: full papers, work in progress papers, and poster abstracts.
Full papers have a length of up to 16 pages while work in progress papers have a maximum length of 8 pages. Both formats follow the Springer LNCS template. Both full and work in progress papers appear in the proceedings. Poster abstracts have a maximum length of 4 pages.
We use a double-blind reviewing process. Please, do not include the author’s name and affiliation or any other type of information that may disclose the authors in the submitted paper itself. As a result of the reviewing process, the Program Committee may suggest changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including the category of the paper. In this case, a paper will be conditionally accepted. The Program Committee Chairs will decide on the final acceptance or rejection based on a second analysis of the revised paper.
