Supporting virtual team collaboration

Charles Steinfield, Chyng-Yang Jang, Ben Pfaff
1999 Proceedings of the international ACM SIGGROUP conference on Supporting group work - GROUP '99  
The paper begins by outlining some of the needs of virtual teams.  ...  In this paper, we describe a collaborative system specifically designed to address problems faced by distributed (or virtual) teams.  ...  When team members are spread across distant time zones, this scheduling problem is exacerbated by the limited windows for real time collaboration. l Virtual teams need help in facilitating spontaneous  ...

2007 Parallel, Distributed and Network-based Processing, Proceedings of the Euromicro Workshop on  
In this paper we propose a novel model of resource sharing that is a viable alternative to that commonly adopted in the grid community.  ...  Our model shifts the resource virtualization and aggregation responsibilities to software at the client side, taking these burdens away from resource providers.  ...  As a result, cost-effectiveness of resource sharing is dependent upon, and constrained by, long-term agreements between large institutions, discouraging spontaneous collaborations between smaller groups  ...

virtual communities can emerge spontaneously and share data with the appropriate quality of service for business applications (persistence, synchronization, security, etc.).  ...  The POPEYE framework offers collaborative services for applications that aim to enable spontaneous collaboration over P2P wireless ad hoc groups, where fixed infrastructure is not a prerequisite, where  ...  A shared space is a virtual space composed of all the data shared among a group of users, applications and internal modules. A shared space is therefore mapped to a "group".  ...
