Web information

The main goal of the COOP conferences is to contribute to the solution of
problems related to the design of cooperative systems and to the integration
of these systems in organizational settings. The conferences are aimed at
helping to improve:
∑ The comprehension of human interaction through and with cooperative
systems and other computational artifacts;
∑ The development of models of cooperation and cooperative work from
different perspectives;
∑ The development of appropriate design methodologies and of new
technologies for cooperative work.

The COOP conferences are predicated on the conviction that cooperative
systems design requires deep understanding of cooperative work of groups and
organizations, involving both artifacts and social practices.

We encourage submissions from researchers and practitioners in academia,
industry, consulting firms, and government and welcome papers reporting on
research and case studies from all disciplines contributing to the field of
cooperative systems design, including but not limited to: Computer Sciences
(Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, Information Systems, Group Decision
Support Systems, Knowledge Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction,
Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Multi-agent Systems); Organizational
and Management Sciences; Sociology; Psychology; Ergonomics; Linguistics.

The previous COOP conferences (1995, 1996, 1998, 2000) solicited both
theoretical and empirical contributions on such topics as analysis of
complex work situations, conceptual frameworks for understanding cooperative
work, guidelines for modeling collective activities, methodological elements
for cooperative systems design and innovative and technological solutions.

For COOP 2002 the following issues are particularly topical:
∑ The gap between ‘virtual’ and ‘material’ artifacts in human
How to bridge it, conceptually as well as technologically.
∑ Collaboration among mobile actors: The coordinative
challenges of mobile
interaction, coordination practices of mobile actors, novel technologies to
support mobile interaction.
∑ The WWW as a platform for cooperative systems: How to overcome the
limitations of current web technologies.
∑ Changing work practices and organizations is the wake of cooperative
systems: Real-world exploitation and impact of cooperation technologies
(web-based communities, organizational uses of groupware, intranet etc.)

This list of hot topics is not exclusive.

COOP 2002 conference will be held at the French Riviera, in Saint RaphaŽl,
France, 4-7 June 2002.
