A GROUPWARE ENVIRONMENT FOR COMPLETE MEETINGS
We describe several components that can be used to support the entire life-cycle of a distributed meeting. Our design is based on the premise that meetings are comprised of three stages: pre-meeting setup, during meeting activities, and post-meeting teardown. Our prototype contains five components to support these stages. A room organizer is used to configure the meeting room. A roster is used for notifying and organizing the participants, who then track and join distributed meetings through their personal calendar. The actual meeting is held in a virtual meeting room, which collects participants and groupware tools. Finally, key meeting events are recorded using a storyboard capture tool.
