  1. 1. Social Awareness Support for Cooperation : Design Experience and Theoretical Models

    Author : Ovidiu Sandor; Yngve Sundblad; Cristian Bogdan; Steven Benford; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HCI; CSCW; social awareness; user-centred design; Spatial Model; Aether Model; communities; knowledge; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the research question of how social awareness support in computer systems for groups and communities can be designed in a successful way. While the field of human-computer interaction has been working with similar questions for more than 20 years, many aspects of people’s cooperation and the way those should be considered in system design still need further consideration and research.

  2. 2. Hedonic prices, economic growth, and spatial dependence

    Author : Krister Sandberg; Lars Westin; Bernard Fingleton; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; business and economics; hedonic prices; spatial econometrics; co-operative flats; spatial dependence; SAR-GM; Single-family Homes; Heterogeneity; China; Convergence; Provincial Economic Growth; Ekonomi; Business and economics; Ekonomi; nationalekonomi; Economics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three papers on econometric modeling of spatial dependence. The awareness of interactions between actors is fundamental for understanding property markets as well as the growth of regions. In both cases, neighbors and neighboring markets may stimulate or hamper growth of values. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigations of neural attractor dynamics in human visual awareness

    Abstract : What we see, how we see it and what emotions may arise from stimuli has long been studied by philosophers, psychologists, medical doctors and neuroscientists. This thesis work investigates a particular view on the possible dynamics, utilizing computational models of spiking neural attractor networks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sea cages, seaweeds and seascapes : Causes and consequences of spatial links between aquaculture and ecosystems

    Author : Nils Hedberg; Tedengren Michael; Nils Kautsky; Barry Costa-Pierce; Stockholms universitet; []
