A Mobile Collaborative System (MCOS) enable the cooperation of the members of a team to achieve a common goal by using a combination of mobile and fixed technologies. MCOS can be enhanced if the context of the group of users is considered in the execution of activities. This paper proposes a novel model for Context-Aware Mobile COllaborative Systems (CAMCOS) and a functional architecture based on that model. In order to validate both the model and the architecture, a prototype system in the… Expand
Towards a Context-Aware Framework for Improving Collaboration of Users in Groupware Systems
TLDR
A context-aware conceptual model and architecture is proposed for CAGS aimed to improve user collaboration and identify advantages/disadvantages of current means of collaboration and social behaviors that arise when players interact face-to-face or remotely. Expand
A context-aware architecture for improving collaboration of users in Groupware systems
TLDR
A context-aware conceptual model and architecture is proposed for CAGS aimed to improve user collaboration and identify advantages/disadvantages of current means of collaboration and social behaviors that arise when players interact face-to-face or remotely. Expand
Conceptual Model to Improve Continuity of the Workflow of Collaborative Activities in Multi-Devices
TLDR
This document shows a proposal for a model that incorporates the continuity attribute in the Groupware Systems (SG) development process, that is, systems that allow users to carry out Collaborative Activities through different mobile devices with the lowest number of possible interruptions, so that the user does not feel frustrated with the implication of excessive additional steps.

Study on Collaborative Awareness Model Based on Working Tree
TLDR
The working tree, priority queue of node information distribution and preferential information multicast tree are established in this model on the respective basis of node functions, node weight and node need degree, which not only ensures the preferential distribution of major node information and preferential reception of information badly needed, but performs an incremental transmission of information.

Requirements Analysis for Tangible User Interfaces for Collaborative Use
TLDR
A process of requirements analysis for Tangible User Interfaces design is presented, specifically for software that are used by a group of people working to achieve a common goal. Expand
Context-Aware Groupware Systems and Video Games: State of the Art
TLDR
This paper surveys the state of the art of CAGS, and particularly of Context-Aware Collaborative Video Games, in order to identify individual and social context information to be used by the next generation of collaborative systems. Expand
FrUtEG: a conceptual framework for utility evaluation in groupware
TLDR
A conceptual framework to evaluate utility of groupwares is introduced and it is shown that if a product does not allow the user to achieve their goals, the user will not want to continue using the product. Expand
An Infrastructure to Enable Lightweight Context-Awareness for Mobile Users
TLDR
A context management infrastructure for mobile environments is presented, aimed at controlling context information life-cycle in this kind of scenarios, with the main goal of enabling application and services to adapt their behaviour to better meet end-user needs. Expand
COLLECT: COLLaborativE ConText-aware service oriented architecture for intelligent decision-making in the Internet of Things
TLDR
A COLLaborative ConText Aware Service Oriented Architecture (COLLECT), which facilitates both the integration of IoT heterogeneous domain context data and easy data delivery among several agents and collaborative participants in the system — making use of an enterprise service bus. Expand
Studying Social Interactions in Groupware Systems
Groupware Systems (GS) support groups of users to, via cooperation, coordination, and communication, achieve a common goal. Technological advance has caused the users requirements become moreExpand

An integrated context model: bringing activity to context
TLDR
The main aim of this research is to provide a context model that covers key elements of context that researchers should take into account in their designs and can then be used as a framework in their implementation of context aware systems. Expand
A Personalized and Context-Aware Adaptation Process for Web-Based Groupware Systems
TLDR
This paper presents a two-fold approach for adapting the informational content delivered to a mobile user by web-based groupware systems: a filtering mechanism which considers both the current context and preferences for this context and an object-based model which takes into account the user's physical context. Expand
Towards a Context Management Framework for MobiLife
Recent advances in the field of context reasoning and in wireless information devices, which allow mobile access and provide a multitude of context information, have enabled the provision of new,Expand
Computer Support of Team Work on Mobile Devices
TLDR
This paper presents a general concept of a mobile access to a groupware and examines existing approaches and defines the specific goal, how to bridge the gap between Mobile Computing and Collaborative Software. Expand
Mobile Context Aware Systems: The Intelligence to Support Tasks and Effectively Utilise Resources
TLDR
Preliminary results from the evaluation suggest important issues for consideration in the continuing development of context aware systems and interfaces, including the need for appropriate representation of contextual data to the user, and maintaining a balance between effective support and intrusion.

Hybrid Approach to Collaborative Context-Aware Service Platform for Pervasive Computing
TLDR
This work presents a collaborative context-aware service platform based on hybrid context management model (enhanced CoCA) that performs reasoning and decisions based on context data, context semantics, and related rules and policies. Expand
A Context-Aware Approach for Modeling Bijective Adaptations between Context and Activity in a Mobile and Collaborative learning
TLDR
An innovative approach for modeling bijective adaptations between learning activities and context because they influence each others in learning processes is presented and a multi-layer middleware that supports tasks for managing and adapting context is proposed. Expand
Cyberguide: A mobile context‐aware tour guide
TLDR
The Cyberguide project is presented, in which the authors are building prototypes of a mobile context‐aware tour guide that is used to provide more of the kind of services that they come to expect from a real tour guide. Expand
Information and Hybrid Architecture Model of the OCP Contextual Information Management System
TLDR
The approach consists of a modelling of contextual information which is based on Semantic Web derived technologies and a description of the structured merging in the form of decision rules to classify situations of interest and subsequently to trigger off the relevant actions at each moment. Expand
Towards an Ontology for Context Representation in Groupware
TLDR
This paper proposes an ontology to formally represent context in groupware systems and presents an example where this ontology is used by a logic-based reasoning mechanism for tool recommendation based on the current context of group members. Expand
