Towards a New Approach to Tightly Coupled Document Collaboration

Stijn Dekeyser
2004 Australasian Document Computing Symposium  
In this speculative short paper we describe a novel approach toward tightly coupled document collaboration, involving database-style synchronous client-server collaboration tailored to semi-structured  ...  On the side of tightly coupled distributed collaborative work, emerging XML databases are employing database-type concurrency control techniques, but unfortunately tend to lock entire documents preventing  ...  We list some of them here, and give a very brief indication of some of their individual drawbacks. Then we proceed with outlining a new approach to document collaboration.  ...

Task Dependent Group Coupling and Territorial Behavior on Large Tiled Displays

Anton Sigitov, Anton Sigitov, André Hinkenjann, Ernst Kruijff, Ernst Kruijff, Oliver Staadt
2019 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
In this paper, we investigated the effects of task conditions on group behavior regarding collaborative coupling and territoriality during co-located collaboration on a wall-sized display.  ...  We could detect that participants tended to subdivide the task to approach it, in their opinion, in a more effective way, in parallel. We describe the subdivision strategies for both task conditions.  ...  That caused the transition to a new coupling.  ...

Supporting collaborative writing of hyperdocuments in SEPIA

Jörg M. Haake, Brian Wilson
1992 Proceedings of the 1992 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work - CSCW '92  
We feel that both synchronous and asynchronous cooperation are extremely important aspects of working in groups, and to ignore one or the other is to supply only half a solution to users.  ...  First, hypertext systems [7] allow for concurrent and incremental modification of documents as well as organizing and clustering documents as contexts of work.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work was supported by a special grant from GMD-IPSI to Brian Wilson as a visiting scientist from Stanford University.  ...

Take CoVer

Anja Haake, Jörg M. Haake
1993 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '93  
This leads to a versioned data management and an extended user-interface enabling concurrent users to select a certain state of their work, to be aware of related changes, and to cooperate with others  ...  documents, or reuse of document parts.  ...  Since authors may also want to modify the same version of a document, the loosely-coupled and tightly-coupled mode should also be supported in a versioned system.  ...

1992 Proceedings of the ACM conference on Hypertext - ECHT '92  
Furthermore, we describe the extensions and modifications necessary to support multiple authors with the cooperative version of SEPIA.  ...  This is done by reporting about the design, development, and implementation of SEPIA and presenting results on dedicated and comprehensive authoring functionality addressing also the new rhetoric of hypermedia  ...  Acknowledgements We like to thank B. Bokowski, L.Kirchner, J. Schümmer, and Ch. Schuckmann helping us to implement SEPIA and DOLPHIN.  ...

Querytogether: Enabling entity-centric exploration in multi-device collaborative search

Salvatore Andolina, Khalil Klouche, Tuukka Ruotsalo, Patrik Floréen, Giulio Jacucci
2018 Information Processing & Management  
We present the design and implementation of QueryTogether, a multidevice collaborative search tool through which entities such as people, documents, and keywords can be used to compose queries that can  ...  However, fairly little attention has been devoted to the design of ubiquitous computing approaches for spontaneous exploration of large information spaces enabling co-located collaboration.  ...  Also, this approach only supported a form of loosely coupled collaboration, while it lacked support for tightly coupled collaboration.  ...

Aligning Work Practices and Mobile Technologies: Groupware Design for Loosely Coupled Mobile Groups [chapter]

David Pinelle, Jeff Dyck, Carl Gutwin
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This forces designers to start from scratch each time they develop a system for loosely coupled groups, and they must approach new work settings with little information about how work practices are organized  ...  In this dissertation, I present a design framework to improve the groupware design process for loosely coupled workgroups.  ...  Writers periodically collaborate in a tightly coupled fashion in order to merge their work, to divide tasks, and to develop new plans.  ...

Beyond Presentation: Shared Slideware Control as a Resource for Collocated Collaboration

Debaleena Chattopadhyay, Francesca Salvadori, Kenton O'hara, Sean Rintel
2017 Human-Computer Interaction  
This paradigm limits group interactions, curtailing opportunities for attendees to use slides to participate in a collaborative discourse.  ...  We report on a detailed naturalistic case of using presentation in a design meeting, where participants used Office Social, an experimental slideware technology that enabled open access to shared interaction  ...  The authors would like to thank the Microsoft Office Remote team for the original design and source code that underpinned Office Social, Gavin Smyth for aiding in the development of Office Social, and  ...

Distortion-oriented Workspace Awareness in DOME [chapter]

Philip Weir, Andy Cockburn
