CoAKTinG (Collaborative Advanced Knowledge Technologies in the Grid) is a project that started in June 2002 and runs for 24 months. It is funded by the UK e-Science Programme.

The Objective is to advance the state of the art in collaborative mediated spaces for distributed e-Science collaboration through the novel application of advanced knowledge technologies such as:

  • Ontologies to enhance multi-modal and multi-media time phased group discussions and problem solving

  • Knowledge-based planning and task support to enhance issue-based process/activity discussions

  • Scholarly discourse and argumentation to enhance collaborative meeting structures

  • Presence and visualisation to enhance group peripheral awareness at a distance
