The range of topics covered in Emerging E-Collaboration Concepts and Applications are broad and representative of the state-of-the-art discussion of conceptual and applied e-collaboration issues. Business organizations in the last 10 years have increasingly relied on distributed collaborative processes to maintain their competitiveness. E-collaboration technologies are at the source of something that underlies most business, political, and even societal developments – intense human collaboration.

Emerging E-Collaboration Concepts and Applications is organized in three main parts: conceptual and methodological issues, applied research and challenges, and research syntheses and debate.
