Tandler, Peter (2008): Synchronous Collaboration in the Age of Ubiquitous Computing. Saarbrcken, Germany, VDM Verlag Dr. Mller

Ubiquitous computing environments offer a wide range of devices in many different shapes and sizes, creating new possibilities for interaction. In the context of meetings and teamwork situations, it is desirable--yet still challenging--to take advantage of their different properties for synchronous collaboration. Besides providing an adapted user interface, this requires the software to be designed for synchronous access to shared information using heterogeneous devices with different interaction characteristics. The handling of these requirements poses challenges on software developers. This book provides guidance and support for developers of synchronous groupware applications for ubiquitous computing environments. The readers are enabled to build applications more efficiently and with the required flexibility and extensibility. This books helps developers when creating models of the applications to be developed, when choosing an appropriate architecture, and when creating the design.

Avgeriou, Paris and Tandler, Peter (2006): Architectural patterns for collaborative applications. In International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology, 25 (2) pp. 86-101.

There is currently little reuse of either design or code in the development of collaborative applications. Though there are some application frameworks for this domain, they tend to be rather inflexible in the functionality they offer. This paper seeks to provide design reuse in the form of architectural patterns that focus on low-level horizontal issues: distribution, message exchange, functional decomposition, sharing data, concurrency and synchronisation. We base these patterns on a number of well-established patterns in the domain of distributed applications, concentrating on the specific issues that are encountered in the domain of collaborative applications. We also outline the relation between these low-level architectural patterns and the high-level functionality that collaborative applications offer. By codifying this knowledge and experience in the form of patterns, we hope for a wider support of low-level architectural design to the community of collaborative applications and thus a further advance of the field.

Tandler, Peter and Dietz, Laura (2005): Cooperation in Ubiquitous Computing: An Extended View on Sharing. In: (ed.). "From Integrated Publication and Information Systems to Information and Knowledge Environments". Berlin-Heidelberg, Germany: Springer LNCS 3379pp. 241-250

Many ubiquitous computing scenarios deal with cooperative work situations. To successfully support these situations, computer-supported co-operative work (CSCW) concepts and technologies face new challenges. One of the most fundamental concepts for cooperation is sharing. By analyzing applications of sharing in the context of ubiquitous computing it can be shown that ubiquitous computing enables an extended view on sharing. In this paper, we show that this extended view seamlessly integrates the view of ldquotraditionalrdquo CSCW and additionally incorporates ubiquitous, heterogeneous, and mobile devices used in a common context.

Guicking, Axel, Tandler, Peter and Avgeriou, Paris (2005): Agilo: A Highly Flexible Groupware Framework. In: Fuks, H., Lukosch, S. and Salgado, A.C. (eds.) Proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Groupware, CRIWG 2005 2005, Porto de Galinhas, Brazil. pp. 49-56.

Today there exist many frameworks for the development of synchronous groupware applications. Although the domain of these applications is very heterogeneous, existing frameworks provide only limited flexibility to integrate diverse groupware applications in a meaningful way. We identify five variation points that a groupware framework needs to offer in a flexible way in order to facilitate the integration of diverse groupware applications. Based on these variation points, we propose a groupware framework called Agilo that tries to overcome the limited flexibility of existing frameworks by offering multiple realizations of these variation points and providing a modular architecture to simplify the integration of applications and the extensibility and adaptability to different application and integration requirements.

Tandler, Peter, Prante, Thorsten, Muller-Tomfelde, Christian, Streitz, Norbert A. and Steinmetz, Ralf (2001): Connectables: dynamic coupling of displays for the flexible creation of shared workspaces. In: Marks, Joe and Mynatt, Elizabeth D. (eds.) Proceedings of the 14th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 11 - 14, 2001, Orlando, Florida. pp. 11-20.

We present the ConnecTable, a new mobile, networked and context-aware information appliance that provides affordances for pen-based individual and cooperative work as well as for the seamless transition between the two. In order to dynamically enlarge an interaction area for the purpose of shared use, a flexible coupling of displays has been realized that overcomes the restrictions of display sizes and borders. Two ConnecTable displays dynamically form a homogeneous display area when moved close to each other. The appropriate triggering signal comes from built-in sensors allowing users to temporally combine their individual displays to a larger shared one by a simple physical movement in space. Connected ConnecTables allow their users to work in parallel on an ad-hoc created shared workspace as well as exchanging information by simply shuffling objects from one display to the other. We discuss the user interface and related issues as well as the software architecture. We also present the physical realization of the ConnecTables.
