Revision of ODET 2010: Online Deliberation Emerging Tools from Mon, 14/06/2010 - 16:08

Welcome!... to the website for ODET 2010: Online Deliberation Emerging Tools (Leeds, 30 June), a workshop co-located with the Fourth International Conference on Online Deliberation (30 June–2 July, 2010).

This invitational workshop brings together many of the leading researchers and practitioners in computer-supported dialogue, deliberation and argumentation — modes of discourse central to activities including social learning, collective sensemaking, debate analysis and participatory democracy. Drawing on experiences spanning business, mass media, education, government and many other public sectors, the workshop will consider the state of the art in tools that are emerging from the labs, reflecting on the lessons that are being learnt around the effective usage and deployment of these tools.

This is an informal day to connect new and old faces, and share the latest on what’s emerging in your work. A summary of the workshop will be presented to the main Online Deliberation conference in a plenary panel on 1 July.

Workshop collaboration space

We're using a collaboration tool called Cloudworks as our online workspace before/during/after the workshop: here's the "ODET cloudscape" which hosts our workshop. Participants are asked to sign up, and then add a "cloud" (analogous to a wiki-page) providing info/slides/movies about their approach, which anyone can then comment on. 


Conference Room, Level 3, The Houldsworth Building (also known as School of Engineering: "SE" at top of this map), Institute of Communications Studies, The University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT
