Where did my Office go? Is it in the Cloud!?: Workshop on Spatial and Social Connectedness in Virtual and Mediated Work Environments
2016 (English)In: Proceedings of the 19th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing Companion / [ed] Darren Gergle, Meredith Ringel Morris, New York: ACM Digital Library, 2016, 457-464 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
The physical workplace, a hub for communication, collaboration and co-located interaction can no longer be taken for granted. Today, the design of intelligent interactive media, physical products and ubiquitous environments has passed the phase of being technology-driven. Meaning, insight and experience are now the key design drivers for the bridging of digital and physical design. We foresee how new interconnected knowledge systems – objects/devices, buildings and even cities created from web-based services and IoT – thoroughly transforms CSCW. A wide spectrum of services already invites users to seamlessly move between real and virtual workspaces, using a range of previously separated media channels. This interdisciplinary workshop welcomes researchers and practitioners to a day-long exchange targeting User eXperience (UX) and, specifically, the relationship between social and spatial connectedness in mediated and virtual work environments. Examples from ongoing research and developments informs a discussion on how the borders between the virtual and real become increasingly obsolete.
