  author={Huawei Hou and Ji-zhou Sun and Jiawan Zhang},
With the lucubrating of the research in Computer Supported Collaborative Work, shortening CSCW, people can find the effect of the CSCW in supporting cooperative works in many aspects. But in the design course of an ERP system which is related to a broad range of specialities, and an assembly of capricious members, together with frequently changed system goals, the concept of the CSCW is still not attained enough recognition. As a result, the software in ERP system does not support group-work… 
Genetic algorithm-based image preprocessing for volume rendering optimization
This paper focuses on the processing of the original data-set images and adopts the stochastic search algorithm to optimize the filters in early stage of the volume rendering pipeline.


Mastering Transfer Function Specification by using VolumePro Technology
A new user-interface paradigm for the specification of transfer functions is presented, enabling users with different levels of experience or demanding time restrictions to choose an appropriate approach for their needs.
A Flexible Architecture to Support Awareness in Heterogeneous Collaborative Environments
An architecture that provides awareness under different types of heterogeneity, such as differences in data semantics and disparities in device capabilities, is presented and a consistency model for data sharing in heterogeneous systems is introduced and applied to shared awareness information.
The DISCIPLE system for collaboration over the heterogeneous Web
This work presents a system based on a distributed repository of shared data objects and a client-server based infrastructure that is robust to intermittent connections, and a mixture of slow and fast links.
Design galleries: a general approach to setting parameters for computer graphics and animation
This paper describes the use of DG interfaces for several parameter-setting problems: light selection and placement for image rendering, both standard and image-based; opacity and color transfer-function specification for volume rendering; and motion control for particle-system and articulated-figure animation.
Automating transfer function design for comprehensible volume rendering based on 3D field topology analysis
This paper describes initial results of a 3D field topology analysis for automating transfer function design aiming at comprehensible volume rendering and proposed procedure for designing appropriate color/opacity transfer functions.
Semi-automatic generation of transfer functions for direct volume rendering
It is demonstrated that for a large class of scalar volume data, namely that where the regions of interest are the boundaries between different materials, a transfer function which makes boundaries readily visible can be generated from the relationship between three quantities.
Generation of transfer functions with stochastic search techniques
A novel approach to assist the user in exploring appropriate transfer functions for the visualization of volumetric datasets that shields the user from the complex and tedious "trial and error" approach and demonstrates effective and convenient generation of transfer functions.
The contour spectrum
The authors introduce the contour spectrum, a user interface component that improves qualitative user interaction and provides real-time exact quantification in the visualization of isocontours. The
Footprint evaluation for volume rendering
A forward mapping rendering algorithm to display regular volumetric grids that may not have the same spacings in the three grid directions is presented, which can support perspective without excessive cost, and support adaptive resampling of the three-dimensional data set during image generation.
Latecomer and Crash Recovery Support in Fault-Tolerant Groupware
In a real-time collaborative system, one user's actions must be instantaneously propagated to all the other current participants, and state-full collaborative applications must offer latecomer and crash recovery support.
