[CSCW Group, Institute for Applied Information Technology (GMD FIT) German National Research Centre for Information Technology Schloss Birlinghoven D-53754 Sankt Augustin Germany] The emergence and widespread adoption of the WWW offers... potential in supporting cross-platform cooperative work within widely-dispersed working groups. The Basic Support for Cooperative Work (BSCW) project at GMD is attempting to develop Web-based tools which provide cross-platform collaboration services to groups using existing Web technologies. This paper describes one of these tools, the BSCW Shared Workspace system--a centralised cooperative application integrated with an unmodified Web server and accessible from standard Web browsers.
