Six Issues in Which IS and CSCW Research Communities Differ
It is hoped this paper will promote diplomacy and understanding between these research communities, so that scholars may consider cross-disciplinary IS-CSCW publication strategies. Expand
Re-Infrastructuring for eHealth: Dealing with Turns in Infrastructure Development
The findings show how the work of re-infrastructuring revolves around addressing two key design concerns: a) bringing novelty without being trapped in the existing arrangements or harming what is in place, and b) bringing changes that are within a specific direction although they happen through distributed decision taking.

From the Internet of Things to an Internet of Practices
This exploratory paper focuses on the potential of IoT technologies for supporting collaborative appropriation within Communities of Practice (CoP) from a practice-oriented perspective and outline the vision of an Internet of Practices (IoP), by adding integrated support for the documentation of practices and the sharing of relevant representations.

Challenges of CI Initiatives in a Political Unstable Situation - Case Study of a Computer Club in a Refugee Camp
The research around computer clubs in Palestinian refugee camps and the various lessons learned during the establishment of this intervention such the importance of the physical infrastructure, soft technologies, social infrastructure and social capital are described. Expand
A Critical Lens on Dementia and Design in HCI
This paper presents a case analysis of technology design in art therapy involving people with dementia aimed at challenging conventional narratives and calls attention to and helps solidify an agenda for how the CHI community approaches dementia, design, and technology. Expand


The Concept of ‘Work’ in CSCW
  • K. Schmidt
  • Sociology, Computer Science
  • Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
  • 2011
It is time to reconsider CSCW: to rethink what it is and why it might be important, and a critical appraisal of prevailing myths about the realities of work in the contemporary world is ended in an attempt to position CSCw in the context of technological development more broadly. Expand
From Artefacts to Infrastructures
This paper hopes to facilitate greater CSCW attention to Information Infrastructures through offering a re-conceptualisation of the role and nature of ‘design’, and discusses two such forms of constraint: standardisation and embeddedness. Expand
Global software development in a CSCW perspective
The goal of this workshop is to bring together research-ers and practitioners who have studied GSD from a CSCW perspective, and provide an overview of current findings and future challenges. Expand
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. Expand
Does Distance Still Matter? Revisiting the CSCW Fundamentals on Distributed Collaboration
It is argued that in working remotely, closely coupled work tasks encourage remote workers to spend the extra effort required in articulation of work to make the collaboration function, and collaboration technology readiness takes a different shape in this setting. Expand
Reality is our laboratory: communities of practice in applied computer science
It was found that especially the differences in cultural background and different historical experiences between the two distinct groups of ‘students’ and ‘entrepreneurs’ might make processes of social identification more difficult and, therefore, successful community-building less likely’. Expand

The possibility of utilising recent developments within sociology, in particular the naturalistic analysis of organisational conduct and social interaction, as a basis for the design and development of tools and technologies to support collaborative work is discussed. Expand
Creating Conditions for Participation: Conflicts and Resources in Systems Development

  • 1996
It is suggested that new alliances between groups in organizations-with due concern for their diversity of resources, and with constructive use of the conflicts inherent in the organization-can be a way forward in empowering organizations, making room for groups and individuals within them to act. Expand
Supporting the social context of technology appropriation: on a synthesis of sharing tools and tool knowledge
An understanding of appropriation as a social and collaborative activity is developed, design principles for appropriation support are suggested that are grounded in the practices found in the field, and a prototypical implementation of the concept is presented. Expand
Supporting cooperative applications
The relationship between cooperative applications and the supporting techniques of distributed systems and database technology are investigated and the need to consider alternative approaches to the provision of systems support is considered. Expand
