Extending Collaboration to Mobile Environments

Collaboration, Software agents, Mobility


Most collaborative systems assume that users have access to workspaces through which they can access the entire collaborative context. This is often not the case with mobile users in global environments. Such users can often be disconnected from their contexts and their contribution in the collaboration can be less effective. Mobile environments provide an opportunity to improve connectivity to the collaborative context. However, limited capabilities of mobile devices often restrict such connectivity to disconnected messages, which users must attempt to relate to their memories of the context.
