Developments in mobile and ubiquitous computing are opening up whole new possibilities of how users can access and interact with information. Instead of focussing solely on the digital desktop, it is important to consider the various forms of information and devices within the user's environment as well as how they interact with and influence other users.
Within the global information systems group, we are developing new methods, tools and platforms for collaborative information environments. These include advanced database technologies with integrated support for personalised and context-dependent information delivery, a framework for mixed-media information and customisable collaborative editors. Paper is a pervasive medium that receives special attention in many of our projects as we seek to provide it equal footing with digital media in the modern world of hyperlinked information spaces.
