    Abstract : Robotic telepresence systems enable humans to be present physically and socially in a distant environment. Robotic telepresence technology is the latest in the line of communication technology development. The unique feature of such technology is that its users can act in a distant environment and interact with other people through these systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Striking a balance : Managing collaborative multitasking in computer-supported cooperation

    Author : Rikard Harr; Victor Kaptelinin; Mikael Wiberg; Oskar Juhlin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Computer-supported Cooperative Work; articulation work; individual task execution; balance; interruptions; availability; awareness; interaction; information technology; multitasking; task switching; Informatics; computer and systems science; Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis is a collection of six papers and a cover paper reporting an exploration of how to strike a balance between individual task execution and work articulation in Computer-supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). The interest in this theme is motivated by an increased reliance of IT-supported cooperative work arrangements in modern organizations, the fragmented layout of work for multitasking individuals and reports on various forms of overload, increased level of stress and anxiety experienced by workers active in these organizations.
