    Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


    Evolving from parallel computing, cluster computing, grid computing, to nowadays cloud computing, the distributed computing paradigm has been shifting from parallelization, distribution, sharing, to be able to support full-scale collaboration between systems and people. This new computing paradigm can be called collaborative computing, composing of technologies and techniques to facilitate people, software, and hardware working together via computer-assisted means. A number of well-known technologies are contributing to the emergence of this new computing paradigm, including computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) and groupware, software agents and multi-agent systems, web services and semantic web, social networks and ad-hoc networks. This collaborative computing paradigm and related technologies have seen wide applications in many areas. At the same time, it also offers a lot of research and development opportunities across a number of disciplines and has attracted a lot of attention of many researchers around the world. This Special Issue includes original research papers that report recent advances in collaborative computing technologies and applications.
