We propose an approach for collaborative workspace management in medical conferencing. A collaborative workspace is a virtual data space shared between medical experts for working out solutions collaboratively while conferencing. Our approach provides medical users with an integrated view of various kinds of multimedia patient data and a unified control over the workspace. For data navigation and conferencing, a tree-like navigation tool, which we named the patient record tree, is provided. And we classify patient data, which is the object of medical collaborative works, into six basic types, and provide a view template for displaying each of these types.
