Interactive Information Environments
A Plan for Enabling Interdisciplinary Research
This Note is an adaptation of a proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation for the development of a research methodology to study the process of implementing interactive information environments in information-intensive organizations. It describes early ideas about the methodology and current plans for the establishment of an Institute for Interactive Information Environments. The objectives of the institute will be to provide the much needed interdisciplinary research on the implementation of computer and communications systems and to make the resulting knowledge widely available. This Note describes the early planning for the institute as well as the current views of its organization and the research methodology it will employ.
