Grouped Team Formation in Social Networks
Given an expert collaboration social network and a task, the team formation problem in social networks aims at forming a team which satisfies the skill requirements of the task with efficient collaboration. Different communication cost functions have been proposed in the existing work, but the grouped organization structure inside the team is not considered. With a novel communication cost function as objective function, we define the Grouped Team Formation problem. We propose an exact algorithm for solving the problem, and evaluate it by experiments.
