		 Call for Conference Track Proposals

     Proposals for new conference tracks due by October 28, 2011.
  WETICE is an annual IEEE co-sponsored International Conference on
  Collaboration Technologies and Infrastructure with its Proceedings
  published by the IEEE CS Press. WETICE-2012 will consist of a number
  of conference tracks (including a number of ongoing tracks) on
  various topics related to collaboration technology.  WETICE
  conference promotes fruitful discussions on the latest technology
  developments, directions, problems, and requirements. Each
  conference track will include paper presentations and group
  discussions. In addition, there will be keynote sessions and a final
  joint session to summarize each groups findings.

Proposals should be different from the Ongoing Tracks to avoid duplication.
