Shared-workspace systems with structured graphical representations allow for the free user interaction and the joint construction of problem solutions for potentially open-ended tasks. However, group modelling in shared workspaces has to take on a process-orientated perspective due to the reduced system control in shared workspaces. This text is defined as the monitoring of user actions and the abstraction and interpretation of the raw data in the context of the group interaction and the problem representation. Formally based on plan recognition and the situation calculus, an approach has been developed that incorporates an operational hierarchy for generally modelling activities. The system performs an automatic inline analysis of group interactions and the results are visualized in different forms to give feedback and stimulating self-reflection.
