Title: Facilitating mobile intellectual teamwork
Authors: Belov, Nadya
Keywords: Computer science;Cellular telephones;Virtual work teams
Issue Date: 3-Jun-2005
Abstract: As wireless smartphones accompany increasing numbers of users at all times the devices offer themselves as the medium of choice for improvised synchronous collaboration between two or more participants. However, the small size of smartphones—while necessary for their ubiquity—seems to limit the complexity of collaborative tasks that can be carried out. In order to explore—and push—those limits we investigate how smartphones can support intellectual teamwork. Intellectual teamwork places high cognitive demands on the participants and requires high-quality input and display facilities. In addition, the work of the participants must be coordinated. We present some of the features a virtual collaboration system must support in order to provide efficient and effective collaboration. As a prototypical implementation we present the Wireless Internet Collaborative System (WICS) which incorporates these features.
