The SYSCO Conference is a scientific event that aims to bring together researchers and industrialists to present and discuss new research venues in the design and the use of information and communication technologies for “Collaborative Systems”. Collaborative systems encompass both technical and social challenges to support the collaboration among organisations. Since a few years, these systems have become crucial in different areas and situations such as e-health, social networks, crisis management etc. SYSCO aims at defining methods, architectures and techniques to design and carry out high quality collaborative systems. It will provide a forum to report the development and the application of new technologies that offer new ways of working together and coordinating activities.

The third edition of this conference will be held on November 28-29 in Casablanca, Morocco. Original contributions as well as experience papers on the principles, design, implementation, modelling, analysis, verification, and application of collaborative systems are solicited. Specific concepts common to different forms of such systems are most welcome.

All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by EI.

Papers of particular merit will be published (with an extention) in a special issue in IJARAS: http://www.igi-global.com/journal/international-journal-adaptive-resilient-autonomic/1154

The third international conference on systems of collaboration is dedicated to professor Lotfi Bouzguenda who passed away a few months ago.

May God have his soul in blessed mercy.
