Abstract

The papers appearing in this volume are the collection of articles and panels presented at the 1995 IFIP 8.2 Working Conference on Information Technology and Changes in Organizational Work. It is widely accepted that work and work-life in the industrialized societies of the late Twentieth Century are undergoing a profound transformation in terms of aspects such as the nature of work and job security at the personal level, changes in practice and instability of structures at the organizational level, and increasing interconnection and globalization at the national and international levels. Information technologies are deeply implicated in these transformations, and the papers in this volume explore some of the relationships between these information technologies and the ongoing and possible future changes in organizational work.
