In this paper we present ongoing research about a supporting framework that improves Group Support Systems (GSS) for Collaboration Engineering (CE). CE uses a pattern design approach which allows groups with no design skills, and only limited facilitation skills, to design and execute efficient and effective collaboration processes. Our research tries to use Web-based GSS technologies to support the CE approach. We assume that Social and Semantic Web technologies could enhance CE providing relational (formal rules) and shared information (community experiences). This leads to a new GSS approach that supports groups in designing and executing a collaboration process considering users contributions for a structured collective knowledge sharing process.
