As culture now becomes a critical issue, developers and designers have begun to realize the role of culture in the method and process on applying cultural factors design in collaborative application. By adopting cultural dimension introduced by Trompenaars, this paper reports about on-going research on how culture influence the design of a synchronous groupware application as an intercultural collaboration tools aimed for global virtual team which consist of multicultural users. As individuals are conditioned by their culture, it will try to analyze how culture influences the way users prefer to interact using a groupware so that we can understand the mechanism by which cultural differences could explain user’s behavior toward the acceptance to a groupware application as a remote collaboration tool for global virtual team.
