Conference Track: eCollaboration and Web2.0

September 12-14, 2010
Tel-Aviv-Yafo (Israel)


eCollaboration and Web2.0: Technologies, Applications and Services for
Next-Generation Collaboration in Organizations and Society

Internet collaboration technologies and Web2.0 have profoundly changed
the way in which individuals, institutions and organisations interact with each
other. Novel collaborative arrangements in business and society realize
scenarios that integrate end-users as active co-producers of information,
products and services beyond social and organisational boundaries. Typical
applications facilitate user-generated value creation, communication,
interaction and the development of social relationships between different
social, organizational and commercial realities.

Enabling technologies for such approaches range from easy-to-use Web2.0
tools (e.g. wikis, blogs, messaging and social networking platforms) to
sophisticated cloud computing and software as a service platforms, to novel
user interfaces and mobile devices. This track welcomes submissions that
build on these developments and further state-of-the-art knowledge on
effective design, development, evaluation and deployment of collaborative
arrangements, systems, tools and services in different domains and branches.

Topics include (but not limited to):
– eCollaboration success factors and adoption case studies
– eCollaboration in global teams
– eCollaboration in social networks
– eCollaboration service platforms and marketplaces
– HCI for eCollaboration
– Group support systems and ideation
– User-generated content
– Online communities and Web2.0
– Web2.0 awareness techniques and applications
– Web2.0 value creation networks
– Enterprise 2.0 – corporate applications of Web2.0
– Integration of Social Software and Semantic Web
