    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; command; control; cooperative; collaboration; decision-making; effectiveness; human-computer interaction; microworld; network-centric; military; team; beslutsfattande; effektivitet; ledning; mikrovärld; militär; människa-datorinteraktion; nätverkscentrerad; samarbete; team; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot människa-datorinteraktion; Computer Science with specialization in Human-Computer Interaction;

    Abstract : In response to technological advances, especially in the field of information and communication technology (ICT), the so called revolution in military affairs (RMA) and later the concept of network-centric warfare (NCW) emerged as a theory to further utilize technology for military command and control (C2). Advocates of the Swedish ROLF 2010-vision and the concept of NCW have made claims and assumptions that future technology will improve mission effectiveness by, for example, increasing the understanding of a current situation and its development, the speed of command, and providing means to utilize more efficient forms of organizations.

  2. 2. Technology Encounters : Exploring the essence of ordinary computing

    Author : Mareike Glöss; Annika Waern; Mats Edenius; Paul Dourish; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Everyday life; ICT; phenomenology; ethnography; cultural analysis;

    Abstract : As computing technology has become a vital part of everyday life, studies have increasingly scrutinized the underlying meaning of computational things. As different devices become interwoven with daily practices and routines, there is a growing interest in understanding not only their functional meaning in computational terms but also their meaning in relation to other non-computation artefacts.

  3. 3. Social Order of the Co-Located Mobile Phone : Practices of collaborative mobile phone use

    Author : Moira McGregor; Barry Brown; Christian Licoppe; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Human-computer interaction; Mobile phones; Ethnography; Video analysis; Collaborative interaction; Field studies; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis examines mundane practices of everyday phone use to make conceptual, empirical and methodological contributions to ongoing research on mobile technology. It argues that we do not yet have a clear understanding of how the mobile phone is used–who does what, when and why. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quality of Experience on Smartphones : Network, Application, and Energy Perspectives

    Author : Selim Ickin; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
