Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/323216.323221
We introduce the concept of semantic multicast to implement a large-scale shared interaction infrastructure providing mechanisms for collecting, indexing, and disseminating the information produced in collaborative sessions. This infrastructure...

DISCIPLE: a framework for multimodal collaboration in heterogeneous environments
Ivan Marsic
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/323216.323225
This paper presents a framework for sharing JavaBeans applications in real-time synchronous collaboration. A generic collaboration bus provides a plug-and-play environment that enables collaboration with applications that may or may not be...

Orbit/Virtue: collaboration and visualization toolkits

Creation and performance analysis of user representations in collaborative virtual environments
Kevin Martin
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/323216.323227
In distributed collaborative virtual environments, participants are often embodied or represented in some form within a virtual world. The representations take many different forms and are often driven by limitations in the available technology....

Task-based information management
Michael Wolverton
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/323216.323357
Effective collaboration in fast-changing environment can put great dem ands on a collaborator's time. Therefore, information retrieval and filtering tools for these environments should impose as little on that time as possible. Not only should...
