The combination of personal and mobile technologies (Bring Your Own Device) with technology-augmented spaces designed for collaboration offers new design challenges for the HCI community. This paper is a summary of a doctoral work-in-progress aiming to further understand the design of multi-screen device ecologies for collaboration: understanding the activities, i.e. the Meeting Journey, and understanding the best design principles applicable to support this journey. In order to achieve this, a number of methodologies have been used: ethnographic observations, semi-structured interviews, and focus groups. The journey and design principles are established with an analysis method informed by Grounded Theory. Future work will include the development and evaluation of a software assistant supporting meeting journey activities using a hybrid approach.
