Hideyuki Takada-2
Hello All,

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.]

Please let me remind you that the submission deadline of paper and
workshop proposal for C5-07 (The Fifth International Conference on
Creating, Connecting and Collaborating through Computing) is approaching.

Also please check the up-to-date information regularly at the conference
website http://www.cm.is.ritsumei.ac.jp/c5-07/ .
We are preparing information about keynote talks, registration and hotel
reservation, etc.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Kyoto.

Hideyuki Takada


The Fifth International Conference on
Creating, Connecting and Collaborating through Computing (C5 2007)

January 24 - 26, 2007, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan

Organized by
Hewlett-Packard Company
Kyoto University 21st Century COE Program for Knowledge Society
Viewpoints Research Institute


 Computers, networks, and other forms of technology are now pervasive
 in our information-based society. However, most users still function
 as passive consumers of technology. To evolve into a true knowledge
 society, it is critical that we transform computer-based human
 activities to engage users in the active process of creating,
 connecting, and collaborating together.

 The C5 conference is for researchers, technology developers,
 educators, and technology users who are concerned about developing
 and enabling human-oriented creation, connection, and collaboration
 processes. C5 is an international forum for presenting ongoing work
 as well as new work currently under development and for discussing
 future needs and directions in creative computing and multimedia
 authoring environments. We welcome equally the submission of
 technical papers and practitioner/experience reports for paper
 presentations. In addition, we are adding a workshop track for the
 third day of the conference and are soliciting proposals for half-day
 and full-day interactive workshops.


 Topics of interest include but not limited to
 - Development and applications of collaboration tools and environments
 - User collaboration utilizing 3D, multimedia, and animation objects
 - Technologies for creating educational environments
 - Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) and
   Technology-Enabled Learning (TEL)
 - Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), distributed work, and
   virtual teaming
 - Hybrid technology activities, such as scientific experiments,
   instrumentation, robots, and game playing
 - Development of applications/content for non traditional learning
   environments, e.g. mentoring, peer-to-peer, "teacherless"
   environments (in developing countries), e.g., $100 laptop
 - Applications and tools for education from K-12 through higher education


 Original papers concerned with both theory and practice are solicited.

 A full paper with 8 page limit should be submitted by the paper
 submission deadline. The papers are reviewed by the program comittee
 and authors will be notified about acceptance. Accepted authors have
 to submit a camera ready version of the full paper with 8 page limit
 by the camera-ready copy deadline.  Papers should follow the
 formatting instructions provided by 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format of
 "IEEE Computer Society Press - Proceedings Author Guidelines" (please

 Submitted papers and camera-ready papers should be sent
 electronically through our online submission site
 (http://www.cm.is.ritsumei.ac.jp/c5-07/myreview/). The PDF,
 Postscript and MS-WORD formats are acceptable.


 The third day of the conference (Jan. 26, 2007) has been allotted for
 workshops and field trips. The workshop day is intended to offer
 conference participants the opportunity to learn more about
 human-oriented creation, connection, and collaboration processes and
 tools through interactive group experiences. Workshops allow
 conference participants to apply what they have learned in the
 plenary sessions and paper presentations through hands-on activities,
 facilitated discussions, and field trips to schools and sites
 offering technology-enabled learning activities.

 Workshop proposals should include workshop title, description of
 topic, workshop organizers, workshop duration (half-day or full-day)
 and estimated expenses (printing, etc.). Proposals should be sent to
 the conference contact e-mail address indicated at the conference web

 Full paper submission: October 16, 2006
 Workshop proposals: October 30, 2006
 Notification of acceptance: November 30, 2006
 Full paper camera-ready copies: January 7, 2007
 Proposals for demos and posters: January 7, 2007

 Preliminary version of the proceedings will be distributed during the
 conference. The formal version of the proceedings will be published
 by the IEEE Computer Society and sent to authors after the
