Dear CollabTech community, Due to the worldwide COVID-19 situation, the CollabTech 2020 Chairs and Organizing Committee, after much deliberation, reached the decision to organize CollabTech 2020 fully online. To this end, we will invest our efforts and resources for putting together an online conference that will bring us together and allow us to share and communicate our research. Conference proceedings will be published as planned, the review process will follow the standard procedure and the conference fees will be lower than usual (an update on this topic will follow up soon). We hope you are safe and healthy and we continue looking forward to meeting you in CollabTech 2020 – Online Only The CollabTech 2020 organizing committee

Welcome to CollabTech 2020!

We invite you to participate in the 26th International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Social Computing (CollabTech 2020).

The conference is a major forum for both academics and practitioners to exchange their experiences related to the development and use of collaboration technology, and it has a strong focus on technology design and development. Most published papers propose innovative technical + human + organizational approaches to expand collaboration support, often backed up by theory brought from various disciplines including computer science, management science, design science, cognitive science, and social science. However, the conference also seeks papers with theory, models, design principles, methodologies, and case studies that contribute to a better understanding of the complex interrelations between collaboration and technology. Considering the heterogeneity of research in collaboration and technology, researchers may address the validation of their work through multiple approaches including laboratory experiments, fieldwork, analytic evaluations, case studies, prototyping, and empirical tests. Additionally, a doctoral consortium will be organised during the conference.

This year, the conference will be hosted by the University of Tartu and we look forward to welcoming you all in Tartu, Estonia!
