This is made explicit in the subtitle of the dissertation: Contributions to the conceptual foundations of CSCW. What has been achieved then? 1.  ...  Or it may be a system of preprinted artifacts, such as a kanban system for horizontal coordination in manufacturing. (2) The artifact supports a specific protocol of coordination, a set of rules regulating  ...

From The Matrix to a Model of Coordinated Action (MoCA)

Charlotte P. Lee, Drew Paine
2015 Proceedings of the 18th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work & Social Computing - CSCW '15  
This paper both reviews the CSCW literature to examine existing models of collaborative work and proposes a new, expanded conceptual model: the Model of Coordinated Action (MoCA).  ...  Finally, we discuss some ramifications of MoCA for our understanding of CSCW as a sociotechnical design space.  ...  This work has been supported in part by National Science Foundation grants IIS-0954088, ACI-1302272, OCI-1220269, IIS-0712994, and OCI-0838601.  ...

How is it that groups of people can complete joint tasks without the expected observable markers of "successful" coordination?  ...  Some satisfied groups talked a lot but other satisfied groups did not. Talk was diagnostic of satisfaction but lack of talk was not diagnostic of dissatisfaction.  ...  We also thank Stacy Branham and Meg Kurdziolek for comments on an earlier draft of this paper. This work was supported by NSF Grant. IIS-1018607 HCC-Small.  ...

Coordination components for collaborative virtual environments

Alberto B Raposo, Adailton J.A da Cruz, Christian M Adriano, Léo P Magalhães
2001 Computers & graphics  
Initially a generic study of possible interdependencies between collaborative tasks is presented, followed by the formal modeling (using Petri Nets) of coordination mechanisms for those dependencies.  ...  In order to implement such mechanisms, an architecture of reusable and pluggable coordination components is also introduced. These components are used in an implementation of a multi-user videogame.  ...  Acknowledgements The first author is sponsored by FAPESP (Foundation for Research Support of the State of S* ao Paulo, Brazil), grant number 00/10247-3. The second author is sponsored by CAPES/PICD.  ...

From Care Plans to Care Coordination

Ofra Amir, Barbara J. Grosz, Krzysztof Z. Gajos, Sonja M. Swenson, Lee M. Sanders
2015 Proceedings of the 33rd Annual ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '15  
The paper builds on a computational teamwork theory to identify opportunities for technology to support increased plan-based complex-care coordination and to propose design approaches for systems that  ...  It revealed the complex nature of teamwork in complex care, which poses challenges to team coordination that extend beyond those identified in prior work and handled by existing coordination systems.  ...  The work was funded in part by the Nuance Foundation, a Sloan research fellowship and a CIMIT student award.  ...

A framework for the analysis of coordination in global software development

Gamel O. Wiredu
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 international workshop on Global software development for the practitioner - GSD '06  
This paper attempts a conceptualization of coordination in Global Software Development (GSD) by arguing that distribution is a significant conditioner of software development that engenders distance-related  ...  The resultant is an analytical framework that will hopefully proffer a theoretical foundation for research on coordination in GSD.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This paper is a product from research that is funded by Science Foundation Ireland.  ...

Effects of awareness on coordination in collaborative information seeking

Chirag Shah
2013 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Communication and coordination are considered essential components of successful collaborations, and provision of awareness is a highly valuable feature of a collaborative information seeking (CIS) system  ...  We argue that appropriate and adequate awareness support is essential for a CIS system for reducing coordination costs and keeping the collaborators well coordinated for a productive collaboration.  ...  In other words, we are not comparing two different system designs or trying to provide a better way of supporting awareness.  ...

Governing open source software through coordination processes

Maha Shaikh, Ola Henfridsson
2017 Information and organization  
Second, we articulate a view on the conceptual relationship between governance and coordination where these concepts are understood as a duality, both working together to give rise to efficient and dynamic  ...  First, we enhance the open source governance literature by advancing a new theoretical perspective in which governance is seen as a configuration of coordination processes.  ...  Each coordination process is predicated on a specific authority structure that provides the foundational legitimacy for action.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
And, how is that curatorial work coordinated across the organization?  ...  Data curation is the process of making a dataset fit-for-use and archiveable.  ...  We consequently ask: given a view of curation as craft rather than rotely mechanical labor, what changes might we imagine for ticketing systems like Jira --ones that might lead the management system to  ...
