Collaborative computing (Shen et al., 2008; Yong et al., 2009) over the Internet has been involving in multidisciplinary research cooperation. This special issue will focus on collaborative computing technologies and systems over networked environment. Computer supported cooperative work in design (CSCWD) involves the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams. Previously computer supported communication amongst designers was typically via intranets or extranets but over the last decade the use of the Internet has become much more prevalent in supporting
collaborative work. Thus the Internet phenomenon has
significantly reshaped the research of CSCWD. The universal and nearly free accessibility has made it much easier for people to coordinate and carry out collaborative design jobs without any physical location boundaries. It has also created a number of challenges especially in information security and privacy. This special issue devotes itself to the consideration of the such challenges and opportunities.
