To meet the requirements of dynamic, multiform team working, current Internet-based Collaboration Working Environments must evolve towards large-scale, loosely-coupled, trusted service-oriented systems, with increased emphasis on P2P capabilities. inContext will develop a novel scientific approach focused on a new blend of human collaboration and service-oriented systems that explores two basic research strands: efficient and effective support for human interactions and collaboration in various teams through dynamically aggregated software services; use of human-to-human or human-to-service interactions in applying intelligent mining and learning algorithms that can detect interaction patterns for pro-active service aggregation.
