AMBIENTE - Workspaces of the FutureAbstract: The next generation of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) systems will be determined by a number of new contexts and challenges. They are rooted in emerging technologies as well as in new application areas asking for new approaches and visions of the future. This keynote presentation will have to focus on selected areas and therefore present an approach that has not yet become a mainstream orientation for guiding the design of current CSCW systems but will certainly be very influential in the near future. According to this view, the following four areas have to be integrated into an "umbrella" framework for future CSCW research: Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing, The Disappearing Computer in combination with Augmented Reality, Architecture and Hybrid Worlds, and new forms of Human-Computer Interaction. Note that in this paper, the term "architecture" is primarily used in the sense of real, physical environments as, e.g., rooms and buildings and less in the sense of system architecture or software architecture.
