Computational Artefacts (CompArt)

Towards a design-oriented theory of computational artefacts in cooperative work practices

PURPOSE: the objective of the CompArt research project is to develop a systematic, conceptual foundation for understanding, designing and implementing computational  artefacts in cooperative work settings.

METHOD: conceptual development based on empirical studies of how practitioners conceive of, develop, and exploit the material properties of computational artefacts in actual work processes within health care, design, and administration.

PARTICIPANTS: the Departments of Computer Science and Media, Cognition and Communication at the University of Copenhagen, Department of Organisation at Copenhagen Business School, and the research group of Process and System Models at the IT University of Copenhagen. 

FUNDING: the Velux Foundation and the participating universities.

CONTACT: Professor Jørgen P. Bansler,, tel. +45 23811332.
