Abstract

Transformations in ubiquitous computing and shifts in the domestic nature of home life are placing greater demands on men and women to balance work and life. Although work-life balance has been heavily investigated for many years, the majority of this research gives very little discussion to the role of technology. Thus, the question remains: Can ubiquitous computing address the issues raised by work-life balance? The purpose of this paper is to explore a particular instance of how ubiquitous computing is utilized to maintain work-life balance from the perspectives of women in the information technology workforce.
