However, as the number and complexity of these interactions\ud increases, so too does the need for task support tools. This extended abstract describes our research into support for\ud mixed-initiative (that is, involving both human and computer agents) collaborative tasks in distributed environments. At the heart of this approach is the I-X technology. This is introduced in section 2, while section 3 illustrates the nature of the task support it offers through the description of two applications. Section 4 outlines some future directions that this work will pursue and the final section provides a summary\ud and some conclusions
