In this video demonstration, we present our collaborative software design tool, Calico, for use at both the interactive whiteboard and the tablet PC. Calico has several unique features to fluidly manipulate sketches and make them into scraps to represent software design notations. Further, a grid helps organize sketches in a design session, and also serves as a metaphor for coordinating a distributed design activity across both drawing spaces and users.

Bortis, Gerald and Hoek, André van der (2011): Teambugs: a collaborative bug tracking tool. In: Proceedings of the 2011 International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering 2011. pp. 69-71.
Bug trackers are considered to be one of the primary coordination tools in software development. Interactions with the bug tracker occur throughout the development process, in different settings, from the meeting room to the developer's desk. In this paper, we look at previous field studies of bug trackers and identify the key challenges in supporting coordination. We then describe through several scenarios TeamBugs, a new bug tracker tool. We conclude by raising several research questions for future work.

Jones, James A., Grechanik, Mark and Hoek, André van der (2009): Enabling and enhancing collaborations between software development organizations and independent test agencies. In: Proceedings of the 2009 International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering 2009. pp. 56-59.
While the use of independent test agencies is on the rise -- currently estimated to be a $25B marketplace -- there are a number of challenges to successful collaboration between these agencies and their client software development organizations. These agencies offer independent verification of software, skilled testing experts, and economic advantages that arise from differential global labor rates. However, these benefits are often offset by difficulties in effectively integrating the outsourced testing into software development practice. We conducted extensive discussions with test managers and engineers at software development organizations. This position paper presents the findings of these discussions that identify key difficulties of integrating independent test agencies into software development practice, and it describes our position on how these findings can be addressed.expand

Al-Ani, Ban, Trainer, Erik, Ripley, Roger, Sarma, Anita, Hoek, André van der and Redmiles, David (2008): Continuous coordination within the context of cooperative and human aspects of software engineering. In: Proceedings of the 2008 International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering 2008. pp. 1-4.
We have developed software tools that aim to support the cooperative software engineering tasks and promote an awareness of social dependencies that is essential to successful coordination. The tools share common characteristics that can be traced back to the principles of the Continuous Coordination (CC) paradigm. However, the development of each sprung from carrying out a different set of activities during its development process. In this paper, we outline the principles of the CC paradigm, the tools that implement these principles and focus on the social aspects of software engineering. Finally, we discuss the socio-technical and human-centered processes we adopted to develop these tools. Our conclusion is that the cooperative dimension of our tools represents the cooperation between researchers, subjects, and field sites. Our conclusion suggests that the development processes adopted to develop like-tools need to reflect this cooperative dimension.
