Design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams. The 20th IEEE International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design (CSCWD 2016) provides a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in different but related domains to confront research results and discuss key problems. The scope of CSCWD 2016 includes the research and development fields of collaboration technologies and their applications to the design of processes, products, systems, and services in industries and societies. Collaboration technologies include theories, methods, mechanisms, protocols, software tools, platforms, and services that support collaboration and coordination among people, software and hardware systems. Related fields of research include collaborative workflows, collaborative virtual environments, collaborative workspaces, collaborative wireless sensor networks, interoperability, ontology and semantics, security and privacy, as well as social aspects and human factors related to collaboration. Application domains include, but are not limited to, aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, logistics, transportation, power and energy, healthcare, infrastructure, administration, social networks, and entertainment.
