    Effective regulation of joint activity requires awareness of and coordination with partners at many levels. Our research focuses on understanding and supporting awareness in relatively large and complex activities such as emergency management, software development, information analysis, and education. We describe patterns and issues in the development of activity awareness, and approaches to suppo... View full abstract»

    Trust relationships occur naturally in many diverse contexts such as ecommerce, interpersonal interactions, social networks, sensor web, etc. As agents providing content and services become increasingly removed from the agents that consume them, the issue of robust trust inference and update become critical. Unfortunately, there is neither a universal notion of trust that is applicable to all doma... View full abstract»

    New technology can disrupt existing social processes, especially those formed within the workplace email habitat. Recent abundance of sharing tool choices and disruption of practices makes for a lack of agreement and coherence in the use of information sharing tools. At work, email remains the primary way for sharing information, despite years of knowledge management research. We examine the desig... View full abstract»

    Despite popular use of IM, Email, and other social software (e.g., blogs and wikis) in collaborative work, the maintenance of project status awareness among team members remains a critical research problem. The lack of timely project status sharing in teams can critically limit task coordination efficiency, expertise sharing opportunities, and development of other social components in teamwork (e....

    The Climate CoLab is a system to help thousands of people around the world collectively develop plans for what humans should do about global climate change. This paper shows how the system combines three design elements (model-based planning, on-line debates, and electronic voting) in a synergistic way. The paper also reports early usage experience showing that: (a) the system is attracting a cont... View full abstract»

    We present an intelligence-based mobile solution addressing product life cycle and overall network management functions. Traditional network and service management systems rely on basic inventory information periodically collected from the network in order to establish the basic “Install Base” network view. Such collection systems, however, still require manual human manipulations gi... View full abstract»

    Wikis, such as Wikipedia, have become increasingly popular in recent years. They allow anyone to easily contribute to collaboratively written content. To better organize content, users in Wikipedia assign categories to articles, or create new categories if needed. The resulting semantic coverage of a wiki's articles over its categories is worth studying but not easy to obtain. To provide a better ... View full abstract»

  • The Snoopy Concept: Fighting heterogeneity in semistructured and collaborative information systems by using recommendations

    The collaborative creation and manipulation of semistructured data imposes the major problem of structure heterogeneity. The more users enter information, the more heterogeneous the structure of information becomes. This proliferation of the schema has a significantly negative impact on the performance of querying facilities as structured, unified access of data is no longer possible. In this pape...

    How do people search for information in group settings? Many assumptions are made about collaborative search from surveys and laboratory studies. Yet we have little evidence that explains how groups manage the process as our understanding is based on individual search. Using video and logfiles of groups working on complex projects, we extracted 21 episodes in which groups identified a need, search... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces an open collaboration framework called SAVOIR, which supports collaboration for distributed groups to work together with open sets of heterogeneous resources. This framework is built on the concept of service computing and cloud computing with focus on the openness and accessibility. The set of resources managed in this framework is open; it includes infrastructure services, ... View full abstract»

    Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD), as any scientific experimentation in e-Science, is a complex and computationally intensive process aimed at gaining knowledge from a huge set of data. Often performed in distributed settings, a KDD project usually involves a deep interaction between tools and several users with specific expertise, which can be either a co-located group or a geographically di...

    Work is becoming more collaborative in business and public enterprises. The goal of enabling collaboration is to share knowledge and develop new innovative outcomes. Enterprises are increasingly faced with providing communication systems to support the collaboration and for people to share knowledge to work collaboratively. Collaboration now often goes beyond supporting small teams but increasingl... View full abstract»

    Researchers in Group Support Systems (GSS) and facilitators of group meetings recognize that implementing convergence processes in group is a challenging task. Voting, when used properly, can be a great aid in the convergence process. To reap the full benefit of voting in GSS, the processing and communication capability in GSS must be used when building voting tools. In this paper, we describe the... View full abstract»
