Abstract

In this work, we present a distributed event-based awareness approach for P2P groupware systems. Unlike centralized approaches, several issues arise and need to be addressed for awareness in P2P groupware systems, due to their large-scale, dynamic and heterogenous nature. In our approach, the awareness of collaboration will be achieved by using primitive operations and services that are integrated into the P2P middleware. We propose an abstract model for achieving these requirements and we discuss how this model can support awareness of collaboration in mobile teams. We present a fuzzy-based model, in which every member has the task accomplishment according to four parameters: state of workflow, number of exchanged messages, available resources and sustained communication time. This model will be implemented in MobilePeerDroid system to give more realistic view of the collaborative activity and better decisions for the groupwork, while encouraging peers to increase their reliability in order to support awareness of collaboration in MobilePeerDroid Mobile System.
