The 2016 International Conference on Collaboration 
Technologies and Systems (CTS 2016) is to address, explore 
and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in 
collaboration environments, their modeling and simulation, 
design and use, applications, and their impact. The 
Conference will be held on Oct 31 - Nov 04, 2016 in 
Orlando, Florida, USA.

Real experimentation has proven to be a fundamental 
methodology to evaluate collaboration technologies and 
systems. Early prototyping is an outstanding way to 
understand real user requirements and help adoption of 
technologies by the mass market. In addition, demo 
sessions showing tools, case studies, proofs of concepts, 
and real-systems prototypes at work will naturally 
complement the technical sessions, thus stimulating 
discussions among attendees.

As in every year, the CTS 2016 Conference will feature 
state-of-the-art set of demo presentations and 
experiential showcases. The CTS 2016 Organizing Committee 
invites proposals and ideas for demos to be held in 
conjunction with the Conference. Topics may cover 
different levels, ranging from introductory to highly 
advanced. Demos will address relevant subject areas within 
collaboration. Typically, 30-minute demos are planned but 
others may be considered. Proposals will be evaluated by 
members of the Organizing Committee.
