Our Goal

The Technical Committee on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design (CSCWD) is an international special interest group of researchers working in the fields of collaboration technologies and applications to the design of processes, products, systems, and services in industries and societies. Collaboration technologies include theories, methods, mechanisms, protocols, software tools, platforms, and services that support collaboration and coordination among people, software and hardware systems. Related fields of research include collaborative workflows, collaborative virtual environments, collaborative workspaces, collaborative wireless sensor networks, collaborative processing of Big Data, interoperability, ontology and semantics, security and privacy, as well as social aspects and human factors related to collaboration. Application domains include aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, construction, logistics, transportation, power and energy, smart home and intelligent building, healthcare and homecare, infrastructure, administration, social networks, and entertainment. We provide a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in different but related fields to confront research results and discuss key problems.
