Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) is an interdisciplinary research area devoted to exploring the issues of designing computer-based systems that enhance the abilities to cooperate and integrate activities in an efficient and flexible manner for people in cooperative work situations.
This volume is a rigorous selection of papers that represent both
practical and theoretical approaches to CSCW from many leading
researchers in the field. As an interdisciplinary area of research,
CSCW brings together widely disparate research traditions and
perspectives from computer, human, organisational and design
sciences. The papers selected reflect a variety of approaches and
cultures in the field.
Audience: Of interest to a wide audience because of the
huge practical impact of the issues and the interdisciplinary
nature of the problems and solutions proposed. In particular:
researchers and professionals in computing, sociology, cognitive
science, human factors, and system design.
