Description & Coverage
Description:

New information technologies enable us to interact with each other in totally new ways. The Interaction Society: Theories, Practice and Supportive Technologies provides readers with a rich overview of the emerging interaction society enabled by these new information and communication technologies (ICT). Readers will gain a theoretically deep understanding of the core issues related to the character of the emerging interaction society, be exposed to empirical case studies that can help to understand the impact of this emergence through analysis of concrete examples, and benefit from descriptions of concrete design projects aimed at designing new novel information technologies to support activities in the interaction society.

Coverage:
Reviews and Testimonials

Using a combination of highly theoretical chapters and case studies...the book creates a picture of the emerging interaction society. Recommended.

Editor Biographies
Dr. Mikael Wiberg is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics at Umeå University in Sweden. He is currently director for graduate studies and chair for the advisors group at the department. He received his Ph.D. in Informatics at Umeå University in 2001. The topic for the thesis was design of mobile CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) systems with a special focus on design for informal communication and ongoing interaction. In his current research he is focused on the emerging Interaction Society with related issues including e.g. mobile CSCW, mobile meetings, knowledge management in mobile settings, proximity based interaction, mobile pervasive and ubiquitous computing, and session management for sustained and dynamic interaction across physical and virtual arenas. In 2000 he founded the Mobile business research group and currently Mikael Wiberg is leader for the ITL – Interaction Theory Lab that he founded in 2002. The research at ITL typically includes empirical user studies (e.g. ethnographic studies and naturalistic studies), theoretical work, and design and evaluations of prototype systems. He is also project manager for a EU-funded research project called Meetings where he is doing research on design of novel IT-support for co-located social interaction. Mikael Wiberg has published several articles and presented several papers about design of mobile, pervasive and ubiquitous IT-use.
Mikael Wiberg, PhD has previously contributed to a book published by IDEA-group (e.g. Wiberg, M. & Ljungberg, F. (2000) Exploring the vision of “anytime, anywhere” in the context of mobile work, in: Knowledge management and Virtual organizations: Theories, Practices, Technologies and Methods, Yogesh Malhotra (Ed.)).
