Unifying Formal and Informal Collaboration through Continuous Coordination
University of California, Irvine

In many fields, researchers have juxtaposed the concepts of formal and informal to generate new ideas about interaction and design. The general area of coordination has been ripe with such proposals, but these have not made the transition into the discipline of software development. There, formal tools and approaches still dominate. We indeed see a need for formal process support, but wish to augment them with informal mechanisms inspired by research on awareness. We introduce a conceptual framework termed continuous coordination to frame the approach. We have developed software tools that begin to illustrate this approach and have received positive feedback from developers. However, many open questions remain.

Sponsored by the Center for Lifelong Learning & Design.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
