We are pleased to invite you to submit your work to this IJHCS special issue. This special issue will focus on investigating the dimensions related to mediation that should be considered when designing new collaborative systems involving representations of shared objects.

In particular we invite contributions on requirements definition, system design, implementation, etc., of support for “information translation” in collaborative activities. Information translation here refers to (at least) two (related) capabilities:

  1. Help users access/understand the information/knowledge/resources made available for the activity         according to the users’ level of expertise and objectives and
  2. Help users having possibly different perspectives to collaboratively use, and even possibly enrich the information/knowledge/resources.

We particularly welcome contributions that consider all the aspects of the creation and maintenance of the information/knowledge/resources including empirical investigations and characterisation of shared representations involved in computer supported collaborative activities.

Important dates:
Deadline for submission: 15 January 2011
Special issue publication expected later 2011
