Abstract: This paper presents the Collaboration Studio (CS) system, its argumentation and data-structuring models and gives some insights for dealing with information divergence. The system allows discussions among a group of participants that includes a coordinator. The working mechanisms implemented within CS are perfectly transparent to the user, hiding implementation details, giving an appealing and user-friendly environment, and so users do not have to worry about patterns of data distribution, or the details of distribution management. CS shares characteristics with other collaboration computational tools, such as synchronous and asynchronous support and both group working spaces and a local working space. However, its main purpose differs in that, instead of trying to achieve a single document as the outcome of the joint work of several users, CS aims to achieve a broader objective, which is to register (and to demonstrate) the "path" used to obtain certain knowledge.
