Paper Abstract

Collaboration technologies represent a new approach for performing distributed experiments using multiple and disparate simulations. While Collaboration technologies provide potential solutions, there is also a problem in understanding the capabilities of the many technologies in existence, technologies under development, and new concepts. The problem now is keeping up with the rapidly evolving products and concepts within the collaboration community. A new non-commercial web site ( has just come on-line to support the collaboration community. This unique web site is designed exclusively by and for the collaboration community. The web site has three primary goals: 1) to be the portal for all information about electronic collaboration. For example, the site includes links to most other related web sites, lists of conferences, and a list of collaboration tools. 2) To promote collaboration as a way of doing business. This web site, will educate industry and the Department of Defense on the tremendous gains that can be realized through proper implementation of electronic collaboration. 3) To support organizations in the development and incorporation of collaboration technology into their enterprises. This may take a variety of forms such as learning from others who have used and commented on a collaboration tool, linking tools vendors with collaboration experts, on-line teaching, and more. The web site itself is a collaboration. Most of the sections within the site itself is a collaboration. Most of the sections within the site offer the user the opportunity to participate by providing their knowledge, experience, and opinions. The site also offers on-line discussion forums where users can discuss a variety of different topics in a free from discussion format. Topics range from getting started in collaboration to advanced collaboration science research. Get on-line and join us in this collaboration of collaborators.
