Q : En närmare titt på grupper och teknologi i köande (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This thesis is the result of a project done on the subject of queuing, looking mainly at the behavior of the people doing it and relating it to the context they are in. The focus is on the notion that queues are not only made up of individuals but also groups, a notion that has previously been overlooked in studies of queues. This thesis is based on ethnographic studies and is strongly related to design of technology for supporting queuing situations. The main focus in the design is on supporting groups, flexibility and mobility in queues.

Abstract [sv]

Den här D-uppsatsen är ett resultat av ett projekt inom köande. Efter fältstudier analyseras här hur köande är uppbyggt och tittar främst närmare på gruppbildningar inom köande, ett område som är väldigt outforskat. Uppsatsen är starkt ritad mot design av ny teknik för att stödja olika kösituationer och den presenterar även ett designförslag gjort av författaren.
