The mediation role of shared representations in cooperative activities: new challenges. COOP'10 workshop organised by XRCE.
In a globalized world, where cooperation happens more and more across boundaries, the need for mediation in cooperative work is growing and we believe that there is an opportunity as well as a challenge in thinking about the design of mediation support. In many cooperative activities related to problem framing or solving, shared representations of the object of the work are manipulated by the participants.
This workshop is aimed at contributing to characterize the dimensions related to mediation that should be considered when designing new cooperative systems involving representations of shared objects.
This workshop is organised in conjunction with the International Conference on the Design of Cooperative Systems.
