Special Session on Fuzzy Logic and Computational Intelligence applications for Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW)


Call for Papers


The recent increase on the use of mobile and wearable devices, and emerging technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, the internet-of-things, among others, have opened up possibilities for Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW); fostering participation, collaboration, creativity and engagement; and creating huge opportunities for integration and research. This has stimulated the need of Computational Intelligence applications in CSCW. Particularly, Fuzzy Logic (FL) when combined with other soft computing techniques and computational intelligence methods, it has been used as a base to model, simulate, and create hybrid dynamic systems for collaborative telework, learning and training environments for skills transfer, and knowledge management.

Therefore, the aim of this Special Session is to explore recent advances and applications of fuzzy logic, machine learning, and computational intelligence in the field of computer-supported collaborative work, with the aim to provide a forum to disseminate and discuss recent and significant research efforts in this field.

Main topics (but not limited to):

• Collaboration systems based on emerging technologies, including (but not limited to) mobile and ubiquitous computing, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, context-aware computing, internet-of-things, cyber-physical systems, and HCI.

• Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL), including (but not limited to) personalised learning, adaptive educational systems, intelligent tutors, game-based learning, lifelong learning and transfer learning.

• Mining and Modelling studies, analyses and infrastructures for making use of large and small-scale data, including structured and unstructured type of data.

• Social and crowd computing. Studies, theories, designs, mechanisms, systems, and/or infrastructures addressing social media, social networking, wikis, blogs, online gaming, crowdsourcing, collective intelligence, virtual worlds or collaborative information behaviours.

• Domain-specific collaborative applications, including applications to manufacturing, scheduling, tele healthcare, tele homecare, transportation, sustainability, education, accessibility, global collaboration, facilities services, high security operations, or other domains.

• Innovations, challenges and advancement of solutions for real-time support, collaboration and training, knowledge discovery.
