    CollabTech 2016 will be the eighth international conference on
collaboration technologies. Due to marked advances in networking,
computing and interaction technologies, we are at the cusp of
collaboration technologies being a part of an intricate network of various
types of everyday collaborative processes. The conference will provide a
platform for the international collaboration technology community to
showcase, discuss and deliberate on state-of-the art, emerging new
technology developments and understanding the social use of these
technologies to improve collaborations.

Joint with CRIWG 2016 in Japan
    This year CollabTech will be co-located organized with CRIWG 2016
which means that participants registered for one conference can get both
proceedings and can attend both sessions. CRIWG and CollabTech
communities have similar research topics and goals, but have been
geographically located in different regions. This will be an interesting
opportunity to meet each other.
    The conferences will be held in Kanazawa, which is known in its
culture, history, seafood, a castle, gardens, etc. in Japan.
