The latter was the subject of the Third IEEE International Workshop on Distributed and Mobile Collaboration (DMC) at WETICE 2005, summirized here. The DMC Workshop included 10 full papers on topics grouped into four areas: Web-based collaboration, Formal description and consistency checking of collaborative processes, Models and architectures for collaborative services, and P2P collaborative infrastructures. The discussions at the workshop outlined several important issues regarding the field of distributed collaborative applications.
