User Perception of Interaction Opportunities in Collaborative Human-Computer Settings

To investigate the interruption management problem empirically,
we developed a new, abstract game using the Colored
Trails (CT) infrastructure which has been used previously
as a research test-bed for a variety of decision-making
problems (Grosz et al. 2004). Our framework is abstract
enough to enable us to focus on investigating the interruption
problem without the specification overhead of real world domains.
At the same time, it is sufficiently interesting for human
participants to play that it provides a good environment
in which to investigate human-computer interaction.
