Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The book is relevant, timely, and amazingly thorough in its discussion of the history, theory, application, and future trends in the field. … This comprehensive discussion of awareness systems is an essential read for researchers, developers, designers, and professors, in any field in which awareness and awareness systems are relevant. The authors tell interesting stories to illustrate relevant awareness concepts … provide a complete historical perspective, and, most importantly, stimulate new ideas." (Susan Shepherd Ferebee, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2009)
