In order to develop future tools that start at the state-of-the-art, it is necessary in a first step that we can describe the type of cooperation between people. Based on the preparatory work in Thomas Neumayr's dissertation project, which was published at ACM CSCW 2018, the framework introduced there should now be further refined. It is initially an 18-month collaboration between the team (consisting of Johannes Schönböck (Communication, Knowledge, Media), Werner Kurschl (Human-Centered Computing) and Thomas Neumayr (Communication, Knowledge, Media), under the direction of Mirjam Augstein (Communication, Knowledge, Media) on the topic of "Supporting Hybrid Collaboration for the Teams of Tomorrow" in the context of the research group PEEC (Personalized Environments and Collaborative Systems) with the main contact person Sean Rintel from Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK). A prototype is designed and created that enables a more detailed analysis of the working styles used. There have already been several discussions with Microsoft experts on how - partly experimental - Microsoft technology can be integrated into the prototype. During the first activities in this environment, the team supports an intern from Belgium who has a deeper interest in topics such as artificial intelligence or machine learning. An in-depth user study should then help to raise the framework to the next level and thus lay the foundation for support measures in the tools of tomorrow.
