 The emergence of network facilities and the increased
availability of personal computer systems over the last decade has
seen the development of interest in the use of computers to support
cooperative work. This volume presents the proceedings of the fifth
European conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW).
This is a multi disciplinary area which embraces both the development
of new technologies and an understanding of the relationship between
technologies and society.

 This volume contains a collection of papers that encompass
activities in the field. It includes papers addressing distribute
virtual environments, the use of the Internet, studies of work and
emerging models, theories and techniques to support the development of
cooperative applications. The papers present emerging technologies
alongside new methods and approaches to the development of this
important class of applications.
