22nd CRIWG conference 2016

Kanazawa, Japan

Sepember 14-16, 2016

Collocated with CollabTech2016

Hosted by: JAIST (Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology)

Cooperation with: IPSJ SIG GN, HIS SIG-CE, VRSJ SIG-CyberSpace


We invite you to participate in the 22nd International Conference on Collaboration and Technology. The Conference is a major forum for academic researchers to exchange their experiences related to the development and use of collaboration technology. The Conference 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 sciences and social sciences. However, the Conference also seeks papers with theory, models, design principles, methodologies, and case studies that contribute to better understand 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. This year, CRIWG 2016 will be collocated with CollabTech 2016.
