Call for papers: "Recent Advances in Web Based and Intelligent Collaborative Engineering"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Collaborative Engineering.

The aim of the special issue is to highlight the latest advances, problems and challenges and to present the latest research results in the field of web based and intelligent collaborative engineering with a link to scientific research and its practical implementation. Collaborative engineering is the field which studies the interactive process of engineering collaboration that involves integrating many diverse functional areas. The speed of innovation and competitiveness are linked to the ability to control the entire life cycle of their products and also to work effectively with their entire ecosystem (employees, partners, suppliers, customers, regulators, etc.). The methods and tools of Collaborative Engineering aim in particular to co-design efficiently and to carry out in advance the arbitrations to integrate all the needs and all the constraints. Web based collaborative engineering aims to integrate collaborative design, concurrent engineering and new web technologies to ensure a comprehensive control over the complete life cycle of the product. Clubbed with Intelligent systems they provide a paradigm to sustain a competitive edge in the business market by improving the engineering product development capability and quality.

In the past few decades there has been an interesting rise in the application of web based and intelligent collaborative engineering. The primary objective of this issue is to bring forward thorough, in-depth, and well-focused development in the field of web based and intelligent collaborative engineering.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Recent Advances and Applications in Computer Engineering (RAACE2017) but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
