CENT 2012 2nd International Symposium on Collaborative EnterprisesInnovation is driven by knowledge, perception of and responsiveness to dynamic environments, effectiveness, and the ability to develop and engineer change in a pro-active way. Increasing complexity in business, science, technology, and society adds another crucial factor, that of collaboration. In many respects, collaborative endeavors addressing current and future needs are fundamental for sustainable, innovative solutions.
Most work on collaboration treats the collaborative platform and tool suite, or standards for interoperability and exchange, or short-lived ad hoc collaborations between business enter-prises working toward a common goal. However, it is equally important to find models for collaboration in complex, long-lived projects, resulting in complex and evolvable products or self-sustaining communities. These projects often require deeper requirements analysis, risk analysis, and knowledge management; richer collaboration-aware structures and policies; and more complex, complicated, interactive, and intricate interactions between partners and partner-developed components.
Collaborative enterprises build on new modes of collaboration, advanced practices of development, and enhanced processes in engineering. The broad range of collaborative efforts comprises knowledge sharing, user involvement, risk monitoring and management, and interoperability. They are facilitated by inter-enterprise systems and collaborative infra-structures that need to inter-operate not only in the technical sense, but also in that of composite practice and personal interaction.
This symposium seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners who are exploring the definition, engineering and implementation of these infrastructures, the development of methods and tools supporting the related processes, and the composition and application of suitable modes of interaction, as well as the associated benefits, risks and challenges.
