CSCW - Monday evening

This was the poster and demo session. There were demos of some interesting software such as CoWord and CoPowerPoint, which enable multiple people to simultaneously edit a document, as opposed to the control switching that happens with NetMeeting. But for the most part, I enjoyed the interactive posters more. Various researchers, many of them doctoral students, summarized their research on posters, which they'd then discuss with whomever wandered by. My best conversations:
  • The user experience of instant messaging with Amy Voida of Georgia Tech
  • The effects of interruptions and how they differ based on organizational culture and individual differences with Laura Dabbish of Carnegie Mellon.
  • Ubiquitous mobile collaboration with Davor Cubranic of the University of British Columbia.
  • The use of instant messaging on large displays with Elaine Huang of Georgia Tech.
  • Information architecture with Sam Harvey of the University of Technology, Sydney.
  • Feedback acceptance by virtual teams with Matt Bietz of Michigan.
