With the recent advances in computing and information technologies, we are seeing unprecedented opportunities for increased electronic collaborations among individuals and distributed teams of humans, computer systems and applications, and/or a highly heterogeneous set of computing devices. Computing technologies have continued to evolve from standalone tools, to open systems and from general purpose tools to specialized collaboration grids and infrastructures that facilitate intensive collaboration in multi-organizational settings, as well as in the context of global scale social interactions and worksharing.
Such collaborations are enabling large and globally dispersed organizations to achieve a much higher level of productivity and jointly produce innovative and powerful products that would be impossible to develop without the contributions of multiple collaborators. Novel collaboration solutions that fully realize the promises of electronic collaboration, and pushes the limits of human endeavor, productivity and discovery require innovations and advancements in broad areas of computing including networking, systems and applications, user interfaces and interaction paradigms, and seamless interoperation among system, network and application-specific components and tools.
The goal of this journal is to serve as a premier international venue for publishing innovative and cutting edge research results in theory as well as applied systems, applications and networking areas that enable intensive and efficient collaboration across and among networked cyber-physical and social systems and applications, individuals as well as enterprises.

Prof. Wang is currently the Head of the Department of Mechatronics and Robotics. He is an IET Fellow and a senior member of IEEE. He has broad academic working experience in China, England, Wales, and Scotland for more than 20 years. He has extensive research experience in Internet of Things (IoT), wireless mesh networks, indoor positioning, big data analytics, and applications for smart cities. Along with nearly 30 research projects sponsored by EU, UK EPSRC, Innovate UK, China NSFC, and industry, his research in each area has led to an impactful industrial product. For example, the smart trolley, which has been deployed at more than 10 airports in China, he has developed with partners is the first in the world to provide an IoT solution aiming at providing intelligent services for passengers. His collaborative research in acoustic localization with Zhejiang University has won first place in Microsoft Indoor Localisation Competition in sound group. His current research interests include tactile Internet, indoor positioning and data services, acoustic localization, communications and sensing, and networking mechatronic systems. A team with collaborators inside and outside the university, including Oxford University and Zhejiang University is working on these areas. If you would like to collaborate with me on research or study with me for a Ph.D. degree, feel free to contact me.
