    Students working on team-based design courses often have difficulty tracking the evolution of their design. Student teams seldom have complete meeting notes and frequently backtrack on previous decisions, wasting substantial time and resources. As documents are generated by different team members at different times during a project, not everyone is aware of what is in all the documents. Locating t... View full abstract»

    In the last few years, several Web-based conference management systems have been developed and used by many international conferences. However, almost all of them were built on stand-alone Web servers. Their fault-tolerance, scalability and ability of responding to dispersed users are limited. Aimed at addressing these problems, this paper presents a collaborative conference management system, who... View full abstract»

    Business process modeling is expensive and time consuming. It depends very much on the elicitation method and the person in charge. The model needs to be shared in order to promote multiple perspectives. This paper describes a group storytelling approach as an alternative to the traditional individual interviews to elicitate processes. The form of information gathering is the stories told by proce...

    Collaborative graphics design systems allow users, spread across different locations, to work together designing common patterns. One key element that, in most cases, is poorly supported in such systems is semantic preservation. To make the real-time collaborative graphics design system more efficient, it is essential that the semantic violation problem be well solved. In this paper we present the... View full abstract»

    Consistency maintenance is a fundamental issue in real-time cooperative editing systems. Generally, GOT algorithm is more capable to maintain consistency of documents due to its independence of C2, while other operational transformation algorithms may rely on C2 which is difficult to verify. But GOT algorithm doesn 't refer to cursor position maintenance which is very important in an editing syste... View full abstract»

    Node churn is one hurdle to using peer-to-peer (P2P) networks as anonymous networks, which makes the anonymous path fragile and results in message loss and communication failures. A collaboration scheme including friendly neighbor-based incentive (FNI) and re-encryption mechanism is proposed to deal with the high node churn (changes in system membership) characteristic of unstructured P2P networks...

    Materialized view maintenance is an important research area in the database and data warehouse area. Currently, most of the view maintenance methods are based on the C/S model, which will lead to overload and even crash at the end of data warehouse. A model of P2P-based collaborative view maintenance is proposed, which can not only exploit the potential merits of P2P and CSCW, but also overcome th... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a hybrid and cooperative browser-level web caching system based on chord. Each node in this system contacts with each other for web cache sharing. As a result, when a miss occurs in local web cache and web cache server, the request would be sent to a remote node in the chord or its web cache server. So workload of server would decrease and hit ratio would increase through... View full abstract»
