Coordination mechanism is a critical issue in the cooperative work. However, there are no universal and efficient coordination mechanisms that are fit for the collaborative graphic designing system accounts for it's special characteristic and properties. In this paper we propose a novel intelligent coordination mechanism, which enable members to concentrate on the most of controversial part of the cooperative work by utilizing human awareness information. Related algorithm that includes two key concepts: expectation and convergence is proposed. The mechanism and algorithm have been realized in our prototype system and are proved significantly promote the coordination efficiency.
