Abstract

Mobile technologies and services are playing critical roles in mobile work. One area is mobile collaboration where mobile telephony and data sharing are in high demand. This paper explores and demonstrates that enabling meetings for the mobile context to support “anywhere and anytime” collaboration poses new opportunities, challenges, and tools. EasyMeet incorporates four novel additions, compared to traditional, electronic, meeting tools that support these scenarios and opportunities. They include s60 widget, synchronous voice and data sharing, remote content access, and access to mobile phone platform capabilities through web services. Initial feedback from a pilot has provided insights and improvements about usability and system performance.
