Versions in CSCW and HCI

The main focus of this work has been on the use of versions in CSCW systems with Tom Rodden and Ian Sommerville of Lancaster University. This built upon Lancaster's long experience in both CSCW and Software Engineering and on my own previous work on the use of versions to enable disconnected working and on dynamic pointers as a semantic and conceptual framework.

There are also links with the study of history and undo in single and multi-user systems.
