Over the last two decades, many organization and individuals have relied on electronic collaboration between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and/or autonomous robots to achieve higher productivity and produce joint products that would have been impossible to develop without the contributions of multiple collaborators. Technology has evolved from standalone tools, to open systems supporting collaboration in multi-organizational settings, and form general purpose tools to specialized collaboration grids. Future collaboration solutions that fully realize the promises of electronic collaboration requires advancements in networking, technology and systems, user interfaces and interaction paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and tools.

The 4th International Conference on Collaborative Computing (CollaborateCom 2008) will continue to serve as a premier international forum for discussions among academic and industrial researchers, practitioners, and students interested in collaborative networking, technology and systems, and applications.
