Abstract: Participants in current team collaborations belong to different organizations, work on multiple objectives at the same time, and frequently change locations. They use different devices and infrastructures in collaboration processes that can last from a few hours to several years. All these factors pose new challenges to the development of collaborative working environments (CWEs). Existing CWEs are unable to support emerging teams because diverse collaboration services are not well integrated or adapting to the team context. We present the inContext approach to providing a novel pervasive CWE infrastructure for emerging team forms. inContext aggregates disparate collaboration services using Web services and Semantic Web technologies and provides a platform that captures diverse dynamic aspects of team collaborations. By utilizing runtime and historical context and interaction information, adaptation techniques can be deployed to cope with the changes of emerging teams.
