Workshop participation:

At CHI ’16 we participated in the “Productivity Decomposed: Getting Big Things Done with Little Microtasks” workshop. This was our submission:

Gould, S. J. J., Cox, A. L., & Brumby, D. P.. (2016). Multitasking, Activity Management and Task Decomposition in the Atomic Age. Paper presented at the Productivity Decomposed: Getting Big Things Done with Little Microtasks (CHI 2016 Workshop).
