About this book

This book is concerned with the associated issues between the differing paradigms of academic and organizational computing infrastructures. Driven by the increasing impact Information Communication Technology (ICT) has on our working and social lives, researchers within the Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) field try and find ways to situate new hardware and software in rapidly changing socio-digital ecologies.

Adopting a design-orientated research perspective, researchers from the European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET) elaborate on the challenges and opportunities  we face through the increasing permeation of society by ICT from  commercial, academic, design and organizational perspectives.

Designing Socially Embedded Technologies in the Real-World is directed at researchers, industry practitioners and will be of great interest to any other societal actors who are involved with the design of IT systems.

Reviews

“This book is quite interesting in presenting the role of ICTs in shaping social traits organizational cyber infrastructure, and services. … The book will certainly attract practitioners, tool developers, academics, and researchers because of its discourse on the social dimensions of embedding ICTs, identifying policy design gaps and ways to address these gaps.” (Harekrishna Misra, Computing Reviews, November, 2015)
