Abstract

Before one could start investigating various aspects and issues of CIS, or developing solutions to address them, it is important to have ways to think about them. Several frameworks are found in the relevant literature, which form the basis for the current chapter. It starts with the most common and probably the longest established framework with time and space as the primary dimensions, and moves to more complex and comprehensive frameworks of group activities. Next, it extends space–time framework with the additional dimension of users. Then it discusses the issues of control, communication, and awareness in CIS environments. Finally, the chapter introduces a more comprehensive model of group activities with twelve different dimensions.
