Bio: Susan Williams is a Professor of Enterprise Information Management at the Institute for IS Research, University of Koblenz. She is a founder member of the Center for Enterprise Information Research (CEIR) and leads the Enterprise Information Management / Social Informatics Research Group. She is an interdisciplinary researcher with expertise in the areas of social and organisational informatics. Her work focuses on information ecologies and the design of the digital workplace. With an academic background in computer and information science, her research examines complex socio-technical change (STC) and human-centred technology design. Her long-term research programme investigates the challenges associated with understanding how new information infrastructures are shaping work and work practices and the design of digital workspaces and workplaces to support distributed collaborative work.
Abstract: The seminar introduces our long-term research programme into collaboration technologies and the support of distributed collaborative work. Our work brings together researchers and industry practitioners to investigate collaborative work in large-scale enterprise collaboration systems. First, we examine the research motivations and theoretical foundations and how these have shaped our research environment and research infrastructure. We then look at two research projects that illustrate i) aspects of how we engage with our industry partners and ii) how we make use of large-scale, real-world trace data to examine collaborative work in large-scale enterprise collaboration systems.
