Recent technology directions have highlighted the remarkable commercial
developments in the cloud arena combined with a suite of Web technologies
around mashups, gadgets and social networking. These technologies have
clear relevance to collaborative systems and sensor grids that involve
evolution of grid architectures to clouds or to fresh approaches such as
social networking for building virtual organizations. This workshop
explores this area and invites exploratory papers as well as mature
research contributions.

CSWC Possible topics include but are not limited to:
 - Clouds and Web Technologies to Support Collaboration and Shared Services
and Activities
 - Architectures and Platforms for Business through Collaboration, Data
Management and Workflows
 - Models for Managing Clouds of Clouds, including Inter-networking
 - Mobile clouds -- Architectures, Performance, Applications
 - Clouds and Web Solutions to Support People, Product & Process
 - Collaborative Cloud Services and Applications
 - Relation between Grids and Clouds in their application to Sensors
Systems for Collaboration
 - Data driven applications and use of emerging technologies like Mashups,
Gadgets and Hadoop
 - Clouds for Social Networking and Virtual Organizations
 - Sensors, Internet of Things and Clouds for Collaborative Activities and
 - Web Services & Technologies for Collaborative Work and Applications
 - Performance and Experiences using Web and Cloud Technologies for
 - Security, Privacy, and Trust issues in Clouds and Web Collaboration
 - MapReduce
 - Virtualization
 - Interoperability and Standardization
 - e-Science
 - Supply Chain Collaboration and Inventory Tracking

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the CTS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings
formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of
the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE
Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should
include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax
numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate
clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally
responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers
and posters (please refer to
http://cts2016.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers/call-for-posters for posters
submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of
submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary
submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the workshop EasyChair paper
submission site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cswc2016.
Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. If the
