GROUP 2001:
International Conference on Supporting Group Work

September 30 - October 3, 2001
Boulder, Colorado, USA

Early Registration Deadline: September 1, 2001


GROUP 2001 is a forum for researchers and practitioners who
are interested in computer-based systems that support
groups, organizations and other social networks. Relevant
issues include the design, implementation, deployment, and
evaluation of the effects of these systems.

The expanding functionality of group support systems creates
new use opportunities. However, the integration of
technology with social practices can be challenging.
Additionally, the growing influence of the Internet, mobile
and ubiquitous computing, agent systems, and virtual reality
also influence group/organizational structures and
processes. These technologies are exciting, but their
technological and social integration raises many questions
for a challenging new research agenda.

GROUP 2001 integrates two themes of research: modeling and
implementation issues, and the organizational and behavioral
considerations for supporting group work.  We invite
participation from researchers and practitioners interested
in these issues.

The conference will take place in beautiful Boulder,
Colorado, at the base of the Rocky Mountains.  In addition
to an exciting papers program, plenary speakers include Stan
Deetz, author of _Democracy in an age of corporate
colonization: Developments in=A0 communication and the
politics of everyday life_.

Conference Chair:
Clarence (Skip) Ellis
