Description

Computer-supported cooperative work is a field devoted to understanding group work processes and developing tools to enhance collaborative efforts. This book provides a comprehensive view of this dynamic area through a collection of articles from its diverse contributing fields, with introduction and analysis by the editor.

Part 1 provides a concise history of the field, defining its early goals and seminal projects. In Part 2, current projects and their underlying technologies, including hypertext and database technologies for information sharing, are presented and evaluated. Finally, Part 3 outlines the theories and empirical studies guiding system design based on understanding human dynamics as well as system dynamics. Each section includes reprints, attractively re-typeset, of important papers from the seminal conferences and publications laying the foundations for the field.
