Workshop Overview

The advent of computation can be compared, in terms of the breadth and depth of its

impact on research and scholarship, to the invention of writing and the development of

modern mathematics. Scientific Computing has already begun to change how science is done,

enabling scientific breakthroughs through new kinds of experiments that would have been

impossible only a decade ago. Today's science is generating datasets that are increasing

Workshop on context-adaptive interaction for collaborative work (CAICOLL 2010)

========================================================================

ACM CHI 2010 Workshop on

Context-Adaptive Interaction for Collaborative Work (CAICOLL 2010)



April 10, 2010, Atlanta, GA, USA



Submission deadline: January 6, 2010

http://www.caicoll.org

========================================================================



WORKSHOP GOALS



This workshop addresses facilitation of collaborative work by context-adaptive techniques. Context-based adaptation can support users in a variety of ways, e.g., by offering the tools most appropriate for a certain type of collaboration, by providing templates for artifacts to be produced, or by filtering content relevant for a joint activity. While adaptive (single) user interfaces have been an area of research for considerable time adaptation for collaboration is far less investigated.



The notion of context in collaborative work raises a variety of interesting research issues. So far, attempts to structure and classify the multi-faceted concept of context have been mainly directed at individual, rather than cooperative usage scenarios. The importance of common ground, e.g., for electronically mediated communication has been pointed out repeatedly, but theoretical concepts have hardly been translated into explicit models or concrete adaptation mechanisms. We also see a major challenge in integrating 'exogenous' physical context such as location, time or device used with 'endogenous' context factors such as the users' roles, topical interests, experience profiles or used collaboration tools. For this purpose, integrated, coherent representations of these context aspects will be needed, making them explicit and exploitable by adaptation mechanisms. Ontology-based context models promise to provide coherent representations but are still in their initial stages. Other important issues are how to combine individual contexts into shared collaborative contexts, and how to combine folksonomy-based bottom-up approaches with the benefits of standardization that ontologies traditionally provide. Finally, it is largely unresolved how to define effective and acceptable adaptations for groups. While there has been a considerable amount of research into supporting co-located or remote meetings, more general issues of supporting collaboration by adaptations are still open.



The workshop aims at identifying and structuring context factors for collaborative work, trying to elaborate a generalized notion of context including physical and tool-related aspects, common ground related to content and process of the collaboration, and other factors. We will also discuss strategies and methods for making these context aspects explicit by representing them through suitable models, e.g., by ontological models of cooperative context. These models will serve as input for discussions on how to manage and use such context in real-world scenarios. These activities will serve laying the groundwork for an initiative to build a shared context ontology for this area.



TOPICS OF INTEREST



An initial list of research issues discussed at the workshop comprises the following questions:

- How can the multi-faceted concept of context be structured and classified for cooperative situations?

- What are methods for integrating 'endogenous' physical context with 'endogenous' context factors such as the users' roles, activities, topical interests or experience profiles?

Cognitive theories in virtual teams

Call for Papers



AMCIS 2010 Mini-track: Cognitive Theories in Virtual Teams, 16th Americas

Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) Lima, Peru, August 12 - 15,

2010.



(http://www.amcis2010.org/home/)



Description



Mental events such as thinking and feeling are common factors attributed

to cognitive theories. In virtual teams, team member cognitions about

others beliefs, cultures, and abilities play a key role in virtual team

performance. For example, recent research applying social cognitive theory

in virtual teams has established virtual team efficacy as an important

factor influencing a variety of virtual team outcomes. Further, beliefs

about the team's ability to use technology, task-related potency, and

expectations related to cultural factors have all been identified as

important factors influencing perceptions of the team's collective

Le coût humain des pesticides : comment les viticulteurs et les techniciens viticoles français font face au risque

A travers un corpus de 70 entretiens réalisés auprès de viticulteurs et de conseillers viticoles en Languedoc-Roussillon, notre objectif est de comprendre pourquoi les viticulteurs ne cherchent pas à résoudre leurs incertitudes quant aux conséquences sanitaires des maux qu’ils éprouvent en utilisant des pesticides. Notre hypothèse est que c’est la seule stratégie qui s’offre à eux pour tenir leur peur à distance dans leur travail. Nous montrons d’abord qu’ils envisagent de manière ambiguë les maux qui les affectent au cours de leur travail. Puis, nous analysons leurs difficultés à préserver leur santé dans un contexte de travail contraint. Enfin, nous examinons comment des conduites de défi et un déni des situations s’articulent pour permettre la poursuite du travail. Cela, dans un contexte où la déstructuration des espaces et des temps partagés entre pairs entraîne une déliaison des collectifs, tandis que la recomposition de l’espace rural donne au regard public des effets paradoxaux. Ce qui érode les stratégies de défense des viticulteurs et ne modère pas leur usage des pesticides, mais en modifie les modalités.
