Abstract

Knowledge of the actions of other users is essential to the design of an effective collaborative authoring system. The reasons for this are rooted in the concept of awareness of individual and group activities. This paper identifies the most common problems in collaborative authoring, and a prototype system, CAWS, is presented as a solution to these problems. The system is compared with existing collaborative authoring systems to demonstrate how it aims to improve workspace awareness, and the document development activity as a result.
