Collaborative computing can effectively foster collaborations in a workforce optimize the productivity, and, the most importantly, foster innovations by collaborative thinking and sharing applications. 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. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been witnessed as one of the fastest growing technologies in our life to optimize the resources and make our daily life more convenient. However, there are still several challenges for implementing AI algorithms in collaborative computing. A number of well-known technologies are contributing to the emergence of this new computing paradigm, including computer supported cooperative work and groupware, software agents and multi-agent systems, web services and semantic web, social networks and ad-hoc networks, IoT, Artificial Intelligence and cloud computing, which further promotes the applications of collaborative computing. This collaborative computing paradigm and related technologies have seen wide applications in many areas and solve complex tasks at present and it will create more impact on future generation computer systems. 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.

The objective of this special issue is to explore recent advances in the collaborative computing field, which can address the theoretical and practical challenges for modern services and applications. This special issue will bring together leading researchers and developers to present their latest research on algorithms design, system framework, collaborative network modeling, and architecture, as well as optimization in different layers.
