Abstract

The following research begins to address the relationship between affect and information sharing in order to inform the design of collaborative systems. Through ethnographic observations of affect and face-to-face information sharing in an emergency department we begin to see trends on the occurrence of affect due to context as well as the relationship between affect and information sharing outcomes.
