Almost all activities in a software development process are usually cooperative, and largely influenced by the human factors. We have several computer tools to support the cooperative works\cite{winog-book,cscw88-gibis,colab}, but some of them did not improve performance of the activities because they were too general to apply the software development processes. To support the software development processes effectively, we should observe and analyze the cooperative activities in the real world. In this paper, we focus on software specification processes. Cooperative specification processes are usually performed in a face-to-face session, e.g. meetings. The efficiency and quality of the meetings result in efficient development of specifications of high quality. So we should clarify the characteristics of ``good'' meetings and ``good'' cooperation in them.
