Karsenty, Alain (1997): Easing Interaction through User-Awareness. In: Moore, Johanna D., Edmonds, Ernest and Puerta, Angel R. (eds.) International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces 1997 January 6-9, 1997, Orlando, Florida, USA. pp. 225-228.

In the context of CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative work), we aim to ease the interaction between users through the use of user-aware agents. The purpose of those agents is to be aware of the user's state (e.g. is the user typing on the keyboard, meeting with other people, on the phone, etc.). We will first describe an application we developed on top of a Mediaspace, EasyMeeting, based on user-aware agents. Second, we will present the implementation (multi-agent architecture, language) and conclude with a discussion of the various aspects of the agents. We believe, the user-aware agents are a step toward a better communication man-machine. Instead of the usual approach in which users consciously interact with the machine, we make the computer aware of the users and thus make users unconsciously interact with the computer.

Beaudouin-Lafon, Michel and Karsenty, Alain (1992): Transparency and Awareness in a Real-Time Groupware System. In: Mackinlay, Jock D. and Green, Mark (eds.) Proceedings of the 5th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 15 - 18, 1992, Monteray, California, United States. pp. 171-180.

This article explores real-time groupware systems from the perspective of both the users and the designer. This exploration is carried out through the description of GroupDesign, a real-time multi-user drawing tool that we have developed. From the perspective of the users, we present a number of functionalities that we feel necessary in any real-time groupware system: Graphic&Audio Echo, Localization, Identification, Age, and History. From the perspective of the designer, we demonstrate the possibility of creating a multi-user application from a single-user one, and we introduce the notion of purely replicated architecture.
