A model-based approach to construction of integrated internet CSCW systems

  title={A model-based approach to construction of integrated internet CSCW systems},
  author={M. A. Swaby},
Internet technologies provide ubiquitous infrastructure for Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) applications, many of which share similar fundamental requirements for coordination, collaboration and information management services. However, there is a lack of structured architectural support for building and maintaining these systems. This thesis is directed towards an investigation of development mechanisms for integrated internet CSCW applications which promote reuse and rapid…

Model-Based Construction of Collaborative Systems

This paper proposes an approach to construction of collaborative systems in which a model is used to describe user interaction with core services within an application context, which drives a run-time enactment service which provides integrated access to required services through appropriate user interfaces.

A model-driven architecture for enterprise document management, supporting discovery and reuse

This thesis presents the overall Model-driven Reuse Architecture and preliminary implementation that has been developed to support the specific needs of teaching and learning in higher education, and evaluates the resulting web-base implementation, MRA-HE, in terms of how it performs against a set of realistic scenarios within the domain of higher education.

Investigação de uma Arquitetura para Gerenciamento de Documentos

Um dos grandes desafios no gerenciamento de documentos consiste na identificacao adequada, atraves da especificacao e extracao da informacao, atraves de diversas abordagens e caracteristicas. Definir



Environment Support for Cooperative Working

The components of a CSCW environment are introduced and a possible architecture for the realisation of the environment model is presented and its implication for distributed systems is introduced.

ORBWork: A Reliable Distributed CORBA-based Workflow Enactment System for METEOR2

The design and implementation of ORBWork, reliable and fully distributed a CORBA-based enactment system for the METEOR 2 WFMS is discussed, which supports scalable software architecture, multi-database access, as well as an error detection and recovery framework that uses transactional concepts.

Collaborative working systems to support user interaction within a Virtual Science Park

The paper gives an overview of a generic virtual working system based on X.500 directory services and the World-Wide Web that can be used to support the Virtual Science Park.

A WCCS can then not only support automation of the routine and well defined processes, but also support better human involvement and manage more complex, dynamic, and higher value mission critical processes.

Web*-a technology to make information available on the Web

CERC's Web* (pronounced "WebStar") software, currently released into the public domain, can be used to integrate multiple information sources and allows the exploitation of the World-Wide Web and the CORBA environment.

The InfoSleuth Project: Intelligent Search Management via Semantic Agents

The InfoSleuth project will investigate the use of Carnot technology in a more dynamically changing environment, such as the Internet, where new information sources are constantly being added and for which there is no formal control of the registration ofnew information sources.

Issues of supporting organizational context in CSCW systems

This report documents the work in Strand 1 of the COMIC project concerning the nature and support of what has been termed “organizational context” in CSCW systems. The report provides a variety of

CSCW: Four Characters in Search of a Context

This paper provides a framework for approaching the issue of cooperative work and its possible computer support and the core issues are identified and prospects for the field are outlined.

Mediators in the architecture of future information systems

It is shown that mediation simplifies, abstracts, reduces, merging, merges, and explains data.
