E-Collaboration promotes interaction between people over the Internet, and is vital in virtual organization arrangements where people co-exist or work together, independent of time and location. E-Collaborations and Virtual Organizations covers a broad range of topics, from underlying technological structures to fundamental mechanisms that are relevant to e-Collaboration and virtual organizations. The chapters in this book present some of the current work in the field and represent a resource upon which knowledge, lessons, and views can be drawn upon for consideration and applications in the virtual world.
