A virtual team consists of a dynamic collection of individuals, a set of collaborative activities and network facilities that ensure a flexible and secure coordinated resource sharing. In the Multimedia and Mobile Agent Research Laboratory we have developed the V-Team system, an agent-based multimedia collaborative environment to support virtual teams. V-Team aims to provide a set of team services for better collaboration between a virtual team participants, facilities for managing virtual teams with fully customized team services such as the context management service, and a simpler interface to network services such as the mobility location. This paper describes the components of V Team, team services customization and their configuration via policies.
