Computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) is a new multi-disciplinary field with roots in many disciplines. Due to the area's youth and diversity, few specialized books or journals are available, and articles are scattered amongst diverse journals, proceedings and technical reports. Building a CSCW reference library is particularly demanding, for it is difficult for the new researcher to discover relevant documents. To aid this task, this article compiles, lists and annotates some of the…

Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Groupware : An Introduction to the Special Edition

This two-edition series on computer supported cooperative work and groupware contains sixteen original articles, selected from over forty submissions, and will help the new reader gain some insight of what this field is about.

Easing the writing task : designing computer based systems to help authors

MILO is described, a system that does not feature embedded models of writers or the writing task, and it is shown that MILO successfully meets the stated requirements, and that it compares favourably with existing collaborative writing systems along several dimensions.

Computer Support for Collaboration

This paper is a journey through the enthusiasm towards groupware and CSCW along with the set-backs and scepticism towards the computer-support, and ends up with a discussion on the elements of a platform for collaboration through the use of computers.

Survey of collaborative drawing support tools

The survey indicates that there are currently at least three different strategies of developing collaborative drawing support tools, which reflect the existence of diversified understanding and technological responses to what and how human collaboration in design may be supported.

Groupware design : principles, prototypes, and systems

This thesis presents four design principles that promote the development of successful groupware and forcefully demonstrate the use of the design principles, and substantiate the claim of their utility.

A Survey of Empirical Studies of Conflict

Conflict is a common phenomenon in interactions both between individuals, and between groups of individuals. As computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) is concerned with the design of systems to

Reframing Taxonomy Development in Collaborative Computing Research: A Review and Synthesis of CSCW Literature 2003-2010

This study builds upon earlier work and adopts Mittleman et al.

GroupSketch : A multi-user sketchpad for geographically-distributed small groups

Recent research observations of small group meetings have identified factors critical to the design of computer tools supporting real time collaborative design . In particular, group activity

An integrated framework for office information systems design and management

This work proposes a model that allows a better understanding between the managerial and the technical world, offering a coherent, complete and integrated perspective of both, and builds up a map of Office Automation to be use by managers but also by technicians.

Scientometric analysis of scientific publications in CSCW

This paper provides a quantitative assessment of the scientific literature for mapping the intellectual structure of CSCW research and its scientific development over a 15-year period (2001–2015).



Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Groupware: An Introduction to the Special Issues

An open-systems model for computer-supported collaboration

MOSAIC (multimedia open system for augmented interactive collaboration), a model for CSCW systems, is described in detail and it is suggested that this model can provide a development framework much as the ISO reference model has in the development of standardized protocols for communication systems.

Computer-support cooperative work

At CHI'86 it was a general impression that the area of several people working together using computers was starting to become the next hot topic as a research area. At the same time the European

User support: illustrating computer use in collaborative work contexts

A theoretical framework for the realization of context support systems for hypermedia as a potential environment of implementation is presented and some examples are presented.

A Language/Action Perspective on the Design of Cooperative Work

This article examines research collaborations as a particularly informative example of group work and proposes a framework for describing research collaboration that should provide guidance to those developing technology to support collaborative work.

Computer-supported cooperative work: examples and issues in one federal agency

The increasing computerization of office work raises a number of questions about the technology's effect on individuals as well as the nature and organization of work. Organizations grapple daily

Technology for Computer-Supported Meetings

Plans for the Collaboration Technology project, a joint venture between Andersen Consulting, The University of Michigan and Steelcase, Inc., include flexible and friendly computer support for meetings and for other aspects of group work.

Computer support for cooperative design (invited paper)

The theoretical perspective on design as cooperative work is outlined, the historical roots of the program are sketched — the Scandinavian collective resource approach to design and use of computer artifacts, and some critical reflections on the rationality of computer support for cooperative work are made.

The author argues that CSCW (computer-supported cooperative work) is a renewed recognition of user needs for extensions to current communication media. The argument is based on the fact that the most

Computer Support for Real Time Collaborative Work

The potential of the computer as a tool to further enhance the group work process through direct support of real time communication needs and the specific collaboration requirements of the group is concerned.
