                  Announcement and Call for Papers


                   Second International Workshop
                      "COOPERATIVE BUILDINGS"

       Integrating Information, Organization, and Architecture

                       1 - 2 October 1999
                         Pittsburgh, USA

                           organized by

                     Carnegie Mellon University
                 GMD - German National Research Center
                       for Information Technology



This workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners
who develop and use innovative work environments by making use of
recent advances in information and communication technology, new
concepts in work organization, and a comprehensive perspective
on (office) building design. Attention will be focussed on ways
and means to enable and support flexible forms of communication and
collaboration for a variety of groups ranging from small local teams
to large distributed organizations, utilizing a seamless integration
of physical and digital objects, of real work spaces and virtual
information spaces embedded in real architectural environments.

The notion of "Cooperative Buildings", introduced and discussed at the
very successful First International Workshop on Cooperative Buildings
(CoBuild'98) held at GMD in Darmstadt in February 1998,
provides a framework to focus and merge a number of currently still
parallel approaches and developments in different disciplines
contributing to the design of the workspaces of the future.

For this workshop, topics include (but are not limited to)
contributions from: information and communication technology
(ubiquitous computing, augmented reality, wireless networks, smart
rooms, roomware, active badges, multimodal interfaces, visualization
techniques, ....), work organization (dynamic teams, virtual
organizations, mobile work, telework, work group models, creativity
techniques,..), architecture (dynamic offices, intelligent buildings,
facility management, sustainable concepts, flexible and ergonomic
interior design (furniture, light, acoustics), transformation of work
spaces to living spaces and vice versa, ...)
