Abstract : This project investigated characteristics of collaborative problem- solving by multiple human agents, determined the properties needed by a computer system to participate in collaborative plan-based activities, and designed formalizations for representing and reasoning about multi-agent actions and collaborative plans. They defined a set of core action relations, designed an action representation language and a representation that provides for incrementally building action representations from partial information, and significantly modified the SharedPlan model of collaborative activity GS90 to provide for a greater variety of action relations and more complex act-types. Copies of technical papers reporting work supported by this project are included with this report. We have also appended to this report descriptions of our work on mutual beliefs, negotiation in collaborative activity, and modelling of intentions all of which have not yet been published. The report itself summarizes our results.
