This week's job: paper for COOP2006

I am currently writing a paper for COOP 2006, not because it's in south of france but rather because it seems relevant with what I do:

The conference aims at bringing together researchers who contribute to the analysis and design of cooperative systems and their integration in organizational settings. The challenge of the conference is to advance on :
  • Understanding and modeling of collaborative work which is mediated by technical artefacts;
  • Design methodologies for cooperative work analysis and cooperative systems design ;
  • New technologies supporting cooperation;
  • Concepts and socio-technical solutions for the application of cooperative systems.

Our contribution will be geared towards the influence of new technologies (mobile Computing, ubiquitous computing, etc.) on cooperation, exemplified with our CatchBob! experiment. I will explain how strategies to achieve the catchbob game are influenced by the presence of the location awareness tool.
