Development in collaborative networks maintains displaying progressively more manifestations and has resulted in the reputation of Collaborative Networks (CN) as a brand new medical self-discipline. Contributions to CN coming from a number of reference disciplines has been generally investigated. in reality advancements in CN have benefited from contributions of a number of parts, specifically machine technological know-how, machine engineering, communications and networking, administration, economic system, social sciences, legislation and ethics, and so on. moreover, a few theories and paradigms outlined in different places were steered by way of a number of learn teams as promising instruments to aid outline and represent rising collaborative organizational types. even supposing nonetheless before everything of far to head, there's a growing to be know-how within the learn and educational global, for the necessity to identify a far better theoretical origin for this new self-discipline and a few contemporary works are contributing to this goal.From a utilitarian viewpoint, agility has been mentioned as some of the most beautiful features of collaborative networks to stand the demanding situations of a quick altering socio-economic context. although, over the last years it turned extra obtrusive that discovering the ideal companions and developing the mandatory preconditions for beginning a good collaboration technique are either expensive and time eating actions, and for this reason an inhibitor of the aimed agility. between others, stumbling blocks comprise lack of awareness (e.g. non-availability of catalogs with normalized profiles of companies) and shortage of preparedness of organisations to affix the collaborative approach. Overcoming the mismatchesresulting from the heterogeneity of power companions (e.g. transformations in infrastructures, company tradition, tools of labor, and company practices) calls for significant funding. development belief, a pre-requisite for any powerful collaboration, isn't effortless and calls for time. accordingly the powerful construction of really dynamic collaborative networks calls for a formal context within which power participants are ready to quickly get engaged in collaborative strategies. the idea that of breeding atmosphere has hence emerged as an incredible facilitator for wider dissemination of collaborative networks and their functional materialization. The PRO-VE'05 held in Valencia, Spain, keeps the sixth occasion in a sequence of profitable operating meetings on digital organisations. This booklet comprises chosen papers from that convention and will develop into a useful device to all of these drawn to the advances and demanding situations of collaborative networks.

Finally some important open challenges are addressed. 1. INTRODUCTION Collaboration among autonomous and geographically disperse entities is a process that is clearly facilitated by the advances in computer networks and related technologies. A growing number of collaboration networks, including the "classical" virtual enterprises [11],[3], virtual organizations [10], and professional virtual communities [1],[6], as well as new organizational forms [2], are emerging. As a result of intense R&D in this area, new operating and governance rules as well as support environments are being developed.
