PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 2016 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2016) is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in collaborative environments, their modeling and simulation, design and use, and their impact. The conference will include a session for poster presentations.
CTS 2016 is soliciting poster papers and posters, both technical and industry based, on all CTS related topics for the posters session. The posters session is an effective and interactive forum for presenting works addressing preliminary results, innovative ideas, work in progress, late-breaking results, collaboration tools, platforms and products, and other works, possibly not suitable for a formal full paper. Posters will be held in a special session where presenters will demonstrate their work directly to conference attendees, and will remain in place during the remainder of the Conference.
TOPICS INCLUDE (but are not limited to):
All CTS related topics.
