Abstract

As collaborative systems have become more integrated into everyday life, designers have tried to bridge the social-technical gap by building more flexible systems that allow users to configure their interactions with other users (e.g. who sees their photos). Although researchers have studied configuration in groupware, we have not found any research on whether and how users can anticipate possible interactive paths that are defined as a consequence of their choices and how these paths might be impacted by other users’ actions over time. In this brief paper we offer an initial framing of what we call the interaction anticipation problem and propose five challenges that designers must face in order to address it.
