Abstract (Summary)
Several processes, methods, techniques and mechanisms have been growingup in order to support collaboration for work in group. The CSCW (Computer-Supported Co-operative Work) concepts and the groupware mechanisms, forinstance, follow researches in the Software Engineering for collaborationsolutions of work in group. The greater number of companies finds strategies tosupport their members? collaboration. One of the main challenges incollaboration is how to minimize communication problems. The social networkapproach aims at outgrowing these challenges exchanging information throughrelationships inferences. In addition, the social networks proliferation is moreand more clear, mainly in the Web through WBSN (Web-Based SocialNetworks) - as are called the social networks settled in the Web. In the SoftwareDevelopment Organizations, usually there is low interaction among projects,wasting opportunities to change and reuse knowledge among similar projects.In large number of the social networks counts on entities named VirtualCommunities which have the goal of meeting people. The Virtual Communitiesadmit knowledge changes among people with common interests. This thesisproposes automatic virtual communities recommendations of social networks inorder to come near software projects with similar knowledge represented bycommunities into network.
