This paper explores the use of social awareness support as a potential solution to alleviate informal care al, and emotional load habitually associated with their duties. This is a preliminary contribution of the Vienna University of Technology to TOPIC project that is currently under development. In this paper we report on relevant literature, identify and consider technological and interaction challenges, and suggest mobile and ubiquitous computing for ambient solutions. We illustrate our… 

SIG: Work life balance in HCI

This SIG will discuss the challenges and possible interventions to maintain work life balance for HCI researchers and practitioners.

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.

Interactional Resources for the Support of Collaborative Activities: Common Problems in the Design of Technologies to Support Groups and Communities

This paper will explore how in work settings, individuals use various resources including talk and visual conduct to move into participation with others around an artefact, revealing that in everyday work settings participation and interaction can be amorphous and diverse.

Computer-supported cooperative work: history and focus

The people and the work found under the CSCW umbrella are described, issues considered include: research and design areas, software development, office automation, small-group versus systems approach, US and European differences; and the history of groupware.

From Groupware to Social Media - A Comparison of Conceptual Models

A conceptual model is proposed that identifies major elements and concepts of cooperative systems to provide a basis for their comparison and illustrates that social media systems apply the same basic concepts as other collaborative systems but with a different adoption creating a different user experience.

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

Social Aspects of Place Experience in Mobile Work/Life Practices

This chapter examines the importance of “where” mobile work/life practices occur, and focuses on three analytical themes: place as an essential component of social/collaborative work, place as expressive of organizational needs and characteristics, and place as facilitating a blending of work/ life strategies and relationships.

Designing ubiquitous computing environments to support work life balance

How effective mobile workers from a cross section of industries employed mobile devices to manage work life boundaries is investigated to investigate how effective they were in achieving greater work-life balance.

Taking CSCW seriously

This paper sets out an approach to CSCW as a field of research which it is believed provides a coherent conceptual framework for this area, suggesting that it should be concerned with the support requirements of cooperative work arrangements.

Collaboration and interference: awareness with mice or touch input

It is suggested that it is more important that resources are available to negotiate interference rather than necessarily to attempt to prevent it, and higher levels of awareness for the multi-touch condition accompanied by significantly more actions that interfere with each other.
