Abstract: The high complexity and diversity of today's design projects requires the participation of various modelers and designers. The participants can influence the design process by sharing their perspective, expertise and resources. The involvement of various designers is often known as collaborative modeling and design. A collaborative modeling environment can encompass various geographical or organizational boundaries. In this paper, we provide a multidimensional framework to study various aspects of this important issue. The framework addresses both model-oriented and artifact-neutral collaboration models and enumerates their features. The paper introduces and classifies several relevant applications based on the proposed framework and suggest some directions for future work in the domain.
