Prof. Dr. W. Prinz Summary of the STREP session 13. April 2005 Wolfgang Prinz The following slides summarize the presentations and discussion of the STREP session at the IST Call 5 Preparatory Workshop on Collaborative Working Envrionments Chairman: Wolfgang Prinz. Fraunhofer FIT EC contact person: John Nolan
Seite 2 Introductory presentations Service oriented architectures and flexible reorganisation of work processes Material matters! P2P beyond music sharing Robotics: Open R&D Robotics Lab Collaboration and Gaming Ubiquitous Collaboration. Schahram Dustdar. Vienna Technical University (TUWIEN). Virtualisation. Breakthrough innovations. Preben Holst Mogensen. University of Aarhus (Daimi). P2P Collaboration Michele Angelaccio. University of Rome. Robotics at work Gerard McKee, Dept of Computer Science at the University of Reading. Game Structures & Collaborative Environments Leonie Schaeffer DG INFSO/F4.
Seite 3 Validating Applications Core (crucial) Services for distributed collaboration at work Tools for collaborative tasks Three layered tasks following a systems approach: Innovative conecpts and methods for collaborative work
Seite 4 Collaboration Application Areas Collaborative Support for co-creating regulations How to aligns norms? Cross border legal issues on a European Level Gap between digital/real world and mobile sensor systems collaborative embodiement loosly coupled service oriented network P2P-Tools.com as a validation environment scalability validation Save lives in industries ambient intelligence, aware of users and situations, machines, and risks Knowledge management for the production site
Seite 5 New tools for collaborative tasks Advanced video conferencing system multiple sites and participants; based on virtual rooms metaphor Ontology-guided meaning negotation in communities of practice Semantic web technologies to improve information management in collaborative systems reuse of information developed in collaborative processes 24/7 communication and collaboration tools Collaborative working environment for people on the move location, context of use, info access level distributed work management seamless work access travelling worker support
Seite 6 New tools for collaborative tasks Co-located collaboration contexts combination of mobile phones and e-collaboration to enhance co-located collaboration Shared presence Smart collaboration using agents Support to avoid e-collaboration traps e-collaboration for distributed management simulations games for training cooperation skills of managers Social solution technologies architectures for semantic integration and continuity creativity does not have an appointment with you: ad hoc use dynamic workflow service composition Thinking together instead of dividing work Tools to advise remote users/ experts and to provide knowledge to these users Combining the real and physical environment with the digital mixed reality approaches Tools for creativity
Seite 7 Middelware and Service Layer Issues Software plattform for collaborative environments why is the engineering of CW software different from traditional SE? synchonisation, replication, … non-repudiable interactions plattform that is aware of these aspects Adaptive and aspect oriented programming Active knowledge model base Visual knowledge modelling Friendly and easy to use workplace services Integrated simulation services Collaboration services that respect the dynamics of group work Context awareness Scalability
