Candidate Breakout Groups

        The candidate breakout group topic areas are the same as the
challenge areas identified above:
        1.      Groupware technology base;
        2.      Models of collaboration and application domains;
        3.      People factors
Other breakout group areas can be suggested before and during the workshop.
For each selected area, the breakout group will discuss such topics as the
most critical issues in the area; the most promising opportunities; and
suggestions and priorities for USC-CSE and other research.  The group's end
product will be the summary briefing, including notes and priorities.  USC
graduate students will be available as breakout group scribes.
