Donato Impedovo, Giuseppe Pirlo, Erasmo Stasolla


This paper presents Co.S.M.O.S. (Social and Collaborative Multimedia Operating System), a prototype of a virtual environment to support real-time collaborative activities developed with the aim to meet the growing needs of users in terms of Knowledge Management, Collaboration, and Socialization. More precisely Co.S.M.O.S. is an integrated environment consisting of a WebOS, an environment for the realization of collaborative activities and a social network which can efficiently support real-time collaboration and thus facilitate the development of social communities through advanced sharing and cooperation in the process of Knowledge Management. Co.S.M.O.S. is easily accessible via a Java applet, embedded in a web page, offering users all its features.
