RAMSYS is a web-based infrastructure for collaborative data mining. It is being developed in the SolEuNet European Project for virtual enterprise services in data mining and decision support. Central to RAMSYS is the idea of sharing the current best understanding to foster efficient collaboration. This paper presents the design and rationale of Zeno, a core component of RAMSYS. Zeno is a groupware for discourses on the Internet and, for RAMSYS, aims to provide a “virtual data mining laboratory” to aid data miners in collaboratively producing better solutions to data mining problems.
