This dissertation presents a whiteboard-based computational framework to support dynamic team coordination in a distributed environment. Coordination requires awareness of situations and policies. Policies are rules governing team situations in an organization where situations are contextual information. A whiteboard supports awareness by full information sharing. The framework provides a whiteboard-based coordination model that relies on awareness of team situations and organizational policies. It consists of principle components that address the keys issues such as representation, communication, log transfer syntax, and negotiation. A whiteboard component manages contexts and rules, represented with Semantic Web technologies. It provides flexible yet interoperable communications to cope with diverse interactions. A simple line-based scripting language supports the transfer syntax of fully-structured event log messages. A policy-based negotiation protocol allows a team to find a collaboration partner, adaptively coping with dynamic situations and policies.
