It is time once again to prepare for the annual conference on Online Dispute Resolution, Cyberweek 2012. This online conference provides a week of activities and dialogue about the world of Online Dispute Resolution and how it relates to our work as conflict specialists. Cyberweek 2012 will take place Monday, October 29th through Friday, November 2nd.
We are currently in the process of identifying potential activities for the conference. Are you working on an interesting area in ODR, which you’d like to give a live webinar on? Are you interesting in facilitating a discussion forum on a topic of expertise? Do you have other ideas for activities (simulations, competitions, or anything else?)
This will be the 15th Cyberweek. Since 2010, the Werner Institute has been assisting in the facilitation of Cyberweek by hosting it on the website www.ADRHub.com. The past two years have seen thousands of participants engaged in the activities that took place. Once again, Cyberweek will be packed with engaging discussion forums, webinars, podcasts, demonstrations, simulations, and contests. We are also planning to integrate many of the latest innovations in social media to create an environment that will bring us all closer together for the week.
One wonderful aspect of an online conference is that it all remains archived for reflection following the live events. You may click on the following links wants to view the archives for Cyberweek 2010 or Cyberweek 2011. We are looking forward to building on the success from the past two years of Cyberweek on the ADRHub and creating another vibrant environment that inspires the same energy and participation that has been consistent throughout all of the Cyberweeks thus far.
Registration for the conference is open. You may register at: http://cyberweek2012.eventbrite.com/. Once registered, you will begin to receive more information as we start to detail the schedule of events.
