Executive Summary

In today's workplace, there is a continual increase in the size and complexity of the problems that knowledge workers are challenged to solve. This often requires workers with different expertise to come together to collaboratively develop solutions. To facilitate these collaborations, workers often turn to the use of digital information tools (electronic documents, web applications, analysis packages, etc.). While these tools support individual tasks well, existing system frameworks do not provide adequate support for their use in collaborative contexts, limiting their effectiveness. Researchers in the CSCW and HCI communities have proposed the use of Multiple Display Environments (MDEs) as one potential solution for improving collaboration that hinges on the use of digital information.
