[ba-ohs-talk] CoAKTinG project


thought some of you might be interested to see how we're thinking about a new project just started here, integrating Compendium with presence information, video conferencing/virtual meetings, and workflow/coordination:

CoAKTinG (Collaborative Advanced Knowledge Technologies in the Grid)

http://www.aktors.org/coakting

CoAKTinG (Collaborative Advanced Knowledge Technologies in the Grid) is a project that will start in June 2002 and run for 24 months. It is funded by the UK e-Science Programme. An introductory paper on CoAKTinG submitted accepted for presentation at WACE-2002 is available:

Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Advanced Collaborative Environments, Eleventh IEEE Int. Symposium on High Performance Distributed Computing (HPDC-11), July 24-26, 2002, Edinburgh, Scotland. [

The Objective is to advance the state of the art in collaborative mediated spaces for distributed e-Science collaboration through the novel application of advanced knowledge technologies such as:

       Ontologies to enhance multi-modal and multi-media time phased group discussions and problem solving
       Knowledge-based planning and task support to enhance issue-based process/activity discussions
       Scholarly discourse and argumentation to enhance collaborative meeting structures
       Presence and visualisation to enhance group peripheral awareness at a distance
