The 17th IEEE International Workshop on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructures for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE) will be held in Rome, Italy, from 23 to 25 June.

WETICE is an annual international forum for state-of-the-art research in enabling technologies for collaboration, consisting of a number of cognate workshops. Organisers try to keep the
workshops small enough to promote fruitful discussions on the latest technology developments, directions, problems and requirements.

Each workshop includes paper presentations, workgroup discussions, keynote sessions and a final joint session to summarise each group’s findings. This year, the following topics will be
covered:
– Agent-based Computing for Enterprise Collaboration (ACEC);
– Distributed and Mobile Collaboration (DMC);
– Emerging Technologies for Next Generation GRID (ETNGRID);
– Collaborative Peer-to-Peer Systems (COPS);
– Agile Cooperative Process-Aware Information Systems (ProGility);
– Coordination Models and Applications: Knowledge in Pervasive Environments (CoMA)
– Security Technologies for Collaborative Architectures (ST);
– Evolution of Collaborative Enterprises (ECE).

WETICE 2008 also includes invited presentations by experts from academia, industry and government. Moreover, a showcase session will be incorporated, presenting the different views introduced
by European projects in the area of information society technologies (IST) in the context of collaborative working technologies.
