Articles: Showing

Self-Organization and Identification of Web Communities ( Gary William Flake, Steve Lawrence, C. Lee Giles, Frans M. Coetzee ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2002-03)

- Millions of individuals operating independently author the Web's information. Despite its decentralized nature, the authors' work shows that the Web self-organizes and its link structure allows efficient identification of communities. This is significant because no central authority or process governs hyperlink formation and structure.A Web community is a collection of Web pages in which each member page has more hyperlinks within the community than outside it. Compared to previous methods of finding related Web pages,the authors describe an approach that retains the transparency of methods such as cocitation and bibliographic coupling in explaining why pages belong to a community,yet can identify Web communities of arbitrary dimensions. Applications of their method include creating improved search engines, content filtering, and objective analysis of Web content and the relationships between Web communities.

Realizing the Benefits of Virtual Teams ( Charles Steinfield ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2002-03)

Enhancing E-Communities with Agent-Based Systems ( Simon Case, Nader Azarmi, Marcus Thint, Takeshi Ohtani ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-07)

- Traditionally, the term community refers to a location where people with common interests gather to share experiences, ask questions, or collaborate. Because they are present in the same locale, members can meet easily to learn from each other by sharing their explicit knowledge and revealing information about their successes and failures. E-communities can use Web technologies to provide geographically disparate groups with the same sense of community. To thrive, these virtual communities require software agents that perform many of the functions that print resources and membership services provide to traditional communities. The authors' studies have shown that intelligent software agents, in the role of personal agents, can effectively provide data sharing, personalized services, and pooled knowledge while maintaining user privacy and promoting interaction in e-communities. Future research should include further investigation of several topics, including automatic learning of short- and long-term user interests, improving information retrieval accuracy, and ontology management. Successful deployment of multi-IDIoMS systems requires addressing ontology management--an issue that generally plagues the Internet. However, recognizing and efficiently collating information about similar topics within heterogeneous data sources remain difficult issues to resolve. Using XML and other standards can mitigate some concerns, but it does not provide a solution to other key issues, especially with regard to legacy data. Nonetheless, the authors believe that their agent-based information management system provides a powerful application for use in complex, distributed Internet e-communities.

Developing Groupware for Requirements Negotiation: Lessons Learned ( Barry Boehm, Paul Grünbacher, Robert O. Briggs ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-05)

- The authors discuss the lessons they learned while developing four generations of a distributed groupware system called WinWin.

Tactical Approaches for Alleviating Distance in Global Software Development ( Erran Carmel, Ritu Agarwal ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-03)

- The authors describe three tactical approaches to reducing intensive collaboration, national and organizational cultural differences, and temporal distance.

An Experience in Collaborative Software Engineering Education ( Jesús Favela, Feniosky Peña-Mora ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-03)

- Development of large-scale systems often requires interaction among geographically distributed specialists. Highlighting tool use and team integration, the authors describe a project-oriented software development course in which students in two countries collaborate on a software project in an Internet-based groupware environment.

Globalization by Chunking: A Quantitative Approach ( Audris Mockus, David M. Weiss ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-03)

- Distributing software development over many sites—often located in different countries—can cause productivity-reducing coordination difficulties. This article introduces methods for assessing and minimizing coordination problems by identifying tightly coupled work items or chunks as candidates for independent development.

Using Different Communication Media in Requirements Negotiation ( Daniela E. Herlea Damian, Armin Eberlein, Mildred L.G. Shaw, Brian R. Gaines ; IEEE Software Magazine 2000-05)

- Contrary to traditional wisdom, the authors found that when it comes to requirements negotiations, groups meeting face-to-face perform no better than those using video conferencing and computer support. Furthermore, their study identified a particular distributed group configuration that significantly improved performance and was more conducive to negotiation than face-to-face meetings.

Visualization in Teleimmersive Environments ( Jason Leigh, Andrew E. Johnson, Maxine Brown, Daniel J. Sandin, Thomas A. DeFanti ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-12)

- In teleimmersion, collaborators at remote sites share the details of a virtual world that can autonomously control computation, query databases, and gather results. They don't meet in a room to discuss a car engine. They meet in the engine itself.

Developing Educational Software Components ( Jeremy Roschelle, Chris DiGiano, Manolis Koutlis, Alexander Repenning, Jonathan Phillips, Nicholas Jackiw, Dan Suthers ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-09)

- Having component developers collaborate with domain experts to build applications may be the future of software development. A group of component developers discuss what they've learned in collaborating with educators on educational software components.

Leveraging Distributed Software Development ( Junichi Suzuki, Yoshikazu Yamamoto ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-09)

- As the complexities of distributed collaborative-development environments increase, frameworks specifically designed for such environments will become increasingly essential. The authors describe one such framework—called SoftDock—and the new technologies it exploits.

Collaborative Computing: The Next Millennium ( ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-09)

- With ubiquitous connectivity on the horizon, collaborative computing promises to become one of the next century's core applications.

Architectures, Coordination, and Distance: Conway's Law and Beyond ( James D. Herbsleb, Rebecca E. Grinter ; IEEE Software Magazine 1999-09)

- Geographically distributed development teams face extraordinary communication and coordination problems. The authors' case study clearly demonstrates how common but unanticipated events can stretch project communication to the breaking point. Project schedules can fall apart, particularly during integration. Modular design is necessary, but not sufficient to avoid this fate.

Engineering on the Internet for Global Software Production ( Jerry Z. Gao, Cris Chen, Yasufumi Toyoshima, David K. Leung ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-05)

- How can Internet technology change software engineering? Fujitsu has taken the first steps in constructing an enterprise-wide, Internet-based infrastructure that allows teams around the world to collaborate on every phase in the life cycle of a global software product.

The Role of Government in IT Standards ( Jim Isaak ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1998-12)

Information Visualization for Collaborative Computing ( Hsinchun Chen, Jay Nunamaker Jr., Richard Orwig, Olga Titkova ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1998-08)

- A prototype tool classifies output from an electronic meeting system into a manageable list of concepts, topics, or issues that a group can further evaluate. In an experiment with output from the GroupSystems electronic meeting system, the tool's recall ability was comparable to that of a human facilitator, but took roughly a sixth of the time.
