Paper accepted at CHI conference
"Remote Persons Are Closer Than They Appear: Home, Team and a Lockdown" discusses the challenges and opportunities that arose from mandatory remote collaboration.
PEEC is pleased to announce that a research paper has been accepted at the leading conference in the field of Human-Computer Interaction.
In the paper, titled “Remote Persons Are Closer Than They Appear: Home, Team and a Lockdown”, we discuss the challenges and opportunities that arose from mandatory remote collaboration, due to COVID-19-related lockdowns.
In a qualitative empirical study, we analyzed four teams’ (14 participants in total) mandatory remote collaboration over a period of several days to several months. The results, which were derived from questionnaires, logbooks, group interviews, and meeting recordings, point at possible factors which influence quality of task outcome as well as subjective aspects like satisfaction, motivation, and team atmosphere.
Based on an exhaustive literature review, we provide a scheme for categorizing the effects of mandatory remote collaboration, which serves as the foundation of our conclusions.
