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
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
research and case studies from all disciplines contributing to the field
cooperative systems design, including but not limited to: Computer
(Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, Information Systems, Group
Support Systems, Knowledge Engineering, Human-Computer Interaction,
Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Multi-agent Systems);
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
work, guidelines for modeling collective activities, methodological
for cooperative systems design and innovative and technological

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
interaction, coordination practices of mobile actors, novel technologies
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

This list of hot topics is not exclusive.

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