Groupware Bibliography - Part 2 =============================== Roles in Meetings ----------------- From: lampert@uri.csmil.umich.edu (Robin Lampert) Subject: Literature on Roles in Meetings Date: 18 Jun 92 00:24:34 GMT Organization: Cognitive Science and Machine Intelligence Lab, U. of Michigan --- Purpose of Post A few months ago, I posted asking for for information or references to empirical or observational research on the role or activities that people fulfill in work-group meetings (e.g., recording decisions, avoiding digressions, keeping the agenda). This posting is about some of the information I've found. (There's more, but this was already way to long.) --- About the Literature * Much of the literature on groups comes from the 1950's and 60's. There's a current resurgence of interest in groups and teams. * Much of the work from the '50s & '60 was done by people affiliated with the National Training Laboratories (NTL). * There are several very different definitions of "role" in the literature. McGrath describes five diffent sets of literature about "roles". * There are hundreds, if not thousands, of books with advice on how to hold a meeting. * There is very little empirical work on groups, meetings and roles. (In fact, I probably found as many comments lamenting this fact, as articles or books reporting data and results.) --- What's Included Here Since I'm still making my way through what I'm finding, I can't personally recommend all of the following list. It is an edited list of responses (from both usenet and other sources -- discussions with various faculty members, library searches). I have tried to weight it towards the most frequently/highly recommended books. I have not included the "how to" books. --- Top Three Probably the most commonly mentioned authors were Bales, Hackman and McGrath. (Note: The call numbers may not be exactly right, but they're close. The UofM libraries sometimes use a slightly different call number than the standard.) Some of their works are: Bales , Robert F. _Interaction Process Analysis: A Method for the Study of Small Groups_. The University of Chicago Press; 1950, and 1976?; c1950; ISBN: 0-226-03618-9.

Richard Watson, Gerardine DeSanctis and Marshall Scott Poole Using a GDSS to facilitate group consensus: some intended and unintended consequences September 1987 [draft?] forthcoming, MIS Quarterly Graduate course in CSCW ----------------------- From: saul@cpsc.UCalgary.ca (Saul Greenberg) Subject: Course on groupware Date: 10 Jun 92 07:58:10 GMT I taught a graduate course in CSCW this past fall, in the Department of Computer Science at U of Calgary. I used a reading list instead of a a text (enclosed below), and some students presented their own papers not included in the list. (Videos of systems were also shown). The critical component for learning were the extensive discussions we had. Student assignments were: -presentation and leading discussions of papers in class -critical review of 4 papers -in-depth critical review of an area -a project, usually involving system building or evaluation Projects included things like: -evaluating use of mail, especially on how messages are related to each other -implementation of a system that displays who is around, and connecting appropriate media channels -foundations of a groupware toolkit and so on. The course worked out really well. The readings were also reasonable, although I would probably change some of them. CPSC 601.13 Computer Supported Cooperative Work Conceptual Overviews 1.

The development effort required to produce a network-based virtual world is quite large. The BrickNet toolkit simplifies this development by providing the standard facilities required by a wide range of network-based virtual worlds. It provides support for graphical, behavioral and network modeling of virtual worlds in an object-oriented fashion. BrickNet enables graphical objects to be maintained, managed, and used efficiently, and permits objects to be shared by multiple virtual worlds. In this paper, the architecture and implementation of BrickNet are described. ------------------------------ Benford, S., Ingram, R. and Rodden,T. (1992).

The Proposed standards are loosely called T.12x , where a couple of the standards in the group have already been ratified. The ITU numbers for them are T.123, T.124, T.125. Basically, T.123 covers layer 2-4 (ISO model) and T.124 covers conferencing control. There are currently several vendors of T.12x software stacks which you can buy. regards, jon Groupware from a managerial view point -------------------------------------- From: lubich@switch.ch (Hannes Lubich) Newsgroups: comp.groupware Subject: Re: Wanted: Books of Groupware Date: 31 May 1994 08:17:25 GMT Joshua Kuo (joshua@hntp2.hinet.net) wrote: : Can anyone suggest some good books in discussing the development, trend : use and impact of groupware? I would like to know more about groupware : from a managerial view point. Thanks. : Joshua Joshua et al., as far as I can see, there are very few books in this area (I've just finished writing one myself and have done some survey work). Besides some periodicals (some specific on CSCW, others more related to office automation, and comp. sci.), here's my list of books (sorry for the poor formating, it's just copied from an MSWord document).
