Collaborative Development Group

Laboratorio di Ricerca per la Collaborazione in Rete

As a research group we address those challenges that must be overcome in collaborative environments, even if distributed by time or distance, to accomplish a common task.

More specifically, we are focused on collaborative environments for software development. Software development is a inherent collaborative activity involving teams of engineers who work together in their task of designing, implementing and maintaining high-quality software systems on time and within budget.

The importance of effective collaboration is higher when developers are physically separated and make use of the Internet as the basis for their interactions. This scenario has now become commonplace thanks to offshore development and open source software projects.
