"Collaboration in Real Environments" Springer Book CFP

CFP for the Book of Post-Proceedings based on a selection of papers of the London-2011 and Paris-2011 EWG - DSS Workshops & special invitations.


Collaboration can be defined as the way companies are actively working together towards common objectives, where sharing information with multiple participants is a key activity. Thus, integrated and collaborative environments require the appropriate use of technologies to make relationships among partners stronger in order to capture and store the transactions and also the environment events and proposals. These proposals must be then analysed from a local planning perspective to support a joint creation of information sharing processes. Thereafter, systems under this collaborative environment must take into account matters such as the geographical dispersion among customers and suppliers, product demand patterns as well as product characteristics. In addition, an effective collaboration leads to collaborative advantages and also to a better partnership performance. Hence, the main implication of those relationships are that partners are oriented to create win-win situations, in which all the participants of one particular environment collaborate to be more competitive against other environments. In order to understand and visualise this better, different perspectives of collaborations in real environments are required to summarize and validate the wide range of solutions for the decision making process in those environments.

Topics Selection

Collect high quality papers, which cover academics, practitioners and enterprises’ points of views, as well as real problems and issues from the implementation of collaborative perspectives in different kinds of environments. Hence, subjects as: Distributed Group Support Systems, Collaborative Decision Making, Supply Chain Management, Information Technologies and Simulation to support real collaborative environments are particularly welcome. In addition, real applications are highly expected. The selection will be based on Full Papers and some high quality short papers from the London and Paris EWG-DSS 2011 workshops.
