Computer Supported Multimedia Environment for Collaboration

  • Jože Rugelj
Conference paper


The impact of new technologies on the different aspects of collaboration and cooperation is concerned and some possible applications are proposed. An architectural model for CSCW systems is introduced. The management functions of a distributed conference environment are also proposed and a pilot conferencing system based on the above propositions is presented.
