Abstract: E-Collaboration focuses on virtual teams, where members are spread across different time zones and space (e.g., towns, countries, or continent). Current applications that support such teams mostly target a subset of collaboration problems and issues and are limited in their applicability, adaptability, and extensibility. Although a service-oriented approach to ecollaboration promises decoupling and flexibility in the choice of components, new methods and approaches are needed to enable the combination of individual elements. Understanding human interactions establishes the foundation for context-aware e-collaboration systems. This chapter introduces three emerging team forms that serve as a starting point for the analysis of human interaction patterns. Together with a context meta model, such patterns determine how services in our service-oriented e-collaboration architecture are selected, used, and adapted.
