Computer-Supported Cooperative Work,Introduction to Distributed Applications
This book outlines the significance of computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), points out the numerous opportunities for users of CSCW systems and the risks of applying them. It introduces an interdisciplinary application area of distributed systems, namely the computer support of individuals trying to solve a problem in cooperation with each other but not necessarily having identical workplaces or working times. Thus, the book is addressed to researchers, students and developers of systems where group communication and cooperation are top priorities.

Studies in computer supported cooperative work,theory, practice, and design
Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) is rapidly expanding the horizons of research on the relations between humans and computers. Presented in this book is a selection of studies which, between them, define and discuss many fundamental issues in CSCW. The book offers an overview of research alongside some new contributions which address key issues in the field and which have not previously been published. Readers with many different backgrounds will find this book of interest, including, but not confined to: - computer scientists: particularly those concerned with networks, messaging services and distributed systems; - social scientists: many sociologists and anthropologists have contributed to CSCW research and interest in the design of computing technologies is increasing in the social sciences generally; - psychologists, cognitive scientists, cognitive ergonomists and students of HCI: these researchers may see CSCW as an important extension to HCI, and Artificial Intelligence workers may see important parallels between CSCW and issues in Distributed AI; - educators and advanced students: a number of specialist undergraduate and masters level courses involving CSCW are beginning to start up in Europe and the USA; it is hoped that this book could serve as a resource for teaching; - workers and users in general: as this book contains accounts of the systems being developed to support the kinds of work that many people will be doing in the future, it can serve to help future users and workers know what to expect and plan how they might best exploit or resist these developments.

The Design of Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Groupware Systems,
The phrases the information superhighway and the the information societyare on almost everyone's lips. CSCW and groupware systems are the key to bringing those phrases to life. To an extent that would scarcely have been imaginable a few years ago, the contributions in this volume speak to each other and to a broader interdisciplinary context. The areas of ethnography and design, the requirements and principles of CSCW design, CSCW languages and environments, and the evaluation of CSCW systems are brought together, to bring to light how activities in working domains are really in practice, carried out. The aim above all is to do justice to the creativity and versatility of those whose work they aim to support.

Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design I,8th International Conference, CSCWD 2004, Xiamen, China, May 26-28, 2004. Revised Selected Papers
The design of complex artifacts and systems requires the cooperation of multidisciplinary design teams using multiple commercial and non-commercial engineering tools such as CAD tools, modeling, simulation and optimization software, engineering databases, and knowledge-based systems. Individuals or individual groups of multidisciplinary design teams usually work in parallel and separately with various engineering tools, which are located on different sites, often for quite a long time. At any moment, individual members may be working on different versions of a design or viewing the design from various perspectives, at different levels of detail. In order to meet these requirements, it is necessary to have effective and efficient collaborative design environments. These environments should not only automate individual tasks, in the manner of traditional computer-aided engineering tools, but also enable individual members to share information, collaborate and coordinate their activities within the context of a design project. CSCW (computer-supported cooperative work) in design is concerned with the development of such environments.

Mobile Communications,Re-negotiation of the Social Sphere
Mobile telephony has arrived on the scene.According to statistics of the International Telecommunications Union,in the mid-1990s,less than one person in 20 had a mobile telephone; as of 2003,this had risen to on p- son in five.In the mid-1990s,the GSM system was just being commerci- ized,there were serious coverage and interoperability issues that were not yet sorted out and handsets were only beginning to be something that did not require a car to transport them.In the mid-1990s,if a teen owned a mobile telephone it was likely an indicator of an over-pampered rich kid rather than today’s sense that it is a more or less essential part of a teen’s everyday identity kit. Hence, in less than a decade, this device has established itself tech- cally,commercially,socially and in the imagination of the people.It has changed the way we think about communication,coordination and safety and it has changed the way we behave in the public sphere. The mobile telephone has become an element in our sense of public and private space and in the development of our social and psychological personas.It has become an arena wherein the language is being played with, morphed and extended.Finally,it is reaching out into ever-new areas of commerce and interaction. All of this is,of course,interesting to social scientists.As brought out by Woolgar later,this is,in some ways,a type of experiment writ large that has engendered serious insight into the functioning of the social group and the individual in society.

Application of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) in a Design Group,
This write up suggest a Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) solution to a design group within an organization; this group is made up of four different sub groups. The first two smaller groups are located in the same office; this affords the opportunity to take part in discussion at the same time and in the same place, one of these two sub-groups is coordinating the design project. The third group is located within the same town with the first two groups but not the same office complex; while the last group is in another country entirely, far away from the head office.

Fieldwork for Design,Theory and Practice
This book looks at why ethnographic approaches are popular in the design of computing devices for the workplace, for the home and elsewhere. It presents a history of ethnography, both as it was practiced before computer science picked it up and since, most especially in the CSCW and HCI domains. The focus of the book is on the practical relationship between theory and practice, a relationship that is fundamental to successful design.
