The 5th Social Study of IT workshop

Mobile Interaction: Individuals, Organizations and Infrastructures

The Department of Information Systems hosted the fifth annual Social Study of IT (SSIT5) workshop on the 4th and 5th April 2005. The two-day event focused on three key aspects of Mobile Interaction:

  •     The individual managing their interaction at work using mobile technologies. Their experiences and emotions related to the day-to-day work through and with the technology.
  •     Organizational contexts where mobile technologies serve as a means of improving organizational performance through supporting remote and mobile collaboration.
  •     Global infrastructures affording the essential capabilities of mobile technologies through implementing local or global standards in a context of competition, markets and regulation.
