Summary on Grant Application Form
This proposal outlines a programme of work within the EPSRC Advanced Knowledge Technologies Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (the AKT IRC). It has been evoked in the context of the UK e-Science initiative. The objective of the proposed project is to advance the state of the art in collaborative mediated spaces for distributed e-Science collaboration through the novel application of knowledge technologies. In particular, we aim to harness our work on ontologies to enhance media-rich annotations of group problem solving. We will develop and deploy our work on planning and knowledge-based task support to enhance issue-based process/activity discussions. We will utilise work on scholarly discourse and argumentation to enhance collaborative meeting structures, and our work on presence and visualisation to enhance group peripheral awareness at a distance.
