As CSCWD (Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design) has involved the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams, traditionally the communication among different design teams has been facilitated by the Intranet or Extranet, which makes the applications of CSCWD more expensive and hardly accessible to most organizations, especially small and medium enterprises. The Internet which can be accessed anywhere and at anytime has changed the whole world as well as CSCWD communities. The phenomenon of Internet has significantly reshaped the research of CSCWD. The universal and nearly free accessibility has made it much easier for people to coordinate and do collaborative design jobs without any physical location boundaries. The new technologies and applications from CSCWD have significantly contributed to the multidisciplinary design teams. Over the past thirteen years, CSCWD communities have been actively involved in the dynamic researches and practical developments from both academia and industry. In order to address the new challenges that CSCWD communities are facing, we carefully selected 15 manuscripts from 198 papers (from 360 original submissions) presented at the 12th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design (CSCWD 2008), Xi�an, China on April 16-18, 2008, to forge this J.UCS special issue. It is intended for researchers and practitioners interested in CSCWD Technologies, Applications and Challenges. All selected papers have been revised and extended into current versions by three rigorous review rounds.
