Participants instructing each other.Congratulations to Allison Sauppé for her success at the 2014 Computer-Supported Cooperative Work Conference (CSCW)! Allie presented her paper last Tuesday at the conference in Baltimore, where she was also accepted into the CSCW doctoral colloquium.

Her paper focused on the effects of social cues on collaborative tasks, including instruction, cooperation, and negotiation. Many of the cues we use in everyday life play a large role in conducting such tasks through CSCW technologies, such as Skype and other modes of telepresent communication. Keep up the good work, Allie!
