Along with the rapid development of Internet technology, new network-based computing modes represented by cloud 

computing have emerged. They expand the computer systems in space by means of networks, improve the adaptability of 

clients in the aspect of services, and make a big step towards the ultimate goal of on-demand services and resource 

sharing. However, in the highly dynamic network environment where user requirements are increasingly changeable, 

existing computing modes cannot meet the requirements of businesses, due to some limitations. When facing massive 

service requests, the mainstream cloud computing mode is vulnerable to the performance bottleneck at the server 

side, due to the intensive demand for computing, storage and network bandwidth resources in the open service mode of 

network computing. Moreover, the security problem is becoming more serious along with the increasing complexity of 

the software and hardware components in network computing. Therefore, it is urgent to study new service modes of 

network computing, give full play to the advantages of various computing models, and provide users with efficient 

and secure services through collaboration of cloud and clients.

Cloud-client collaborative computing is one of the most popular research fields in network computing. Although the 

new computing modes including cloud computing are widely applied and rapidly developed in recent years, there is 

still large room for us to improve our understanding of the architecture of these computing models and combine them 

with applications. In order to provide more competitive and distinctive products and technology solutions, we must 

try to solve core technical difficulties, develop key products, master core technologies of software and hardware in 

cloud-client collaborative computing platform, implement its industrialization, and fundamentally improve the level 

of development and information security in Internet, especially in mobile Internet.

The C4W 2018 topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

- Collaborative Computing
- Collaborative Networks
- Collaborative Artificial Intelligence
- Collaborative Big Data
- Collaborative Clouds
- Collaborative Clouds, Edges and Clients
- Collaborative Internet of Things
- Collaborative Resource Sharing
- Collaborative Service Sharing
- Trust, Security and Privacy in Collaborative Computing
- Trust, Security and Privacy in Collaborative Networks
