CYBERWEEK 2015 – CALL FOR PROPOSALS
— DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS EXTENDED to SEPTEMBER 7th, 2015 —
It is time once to prepare for the annual conference on Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), Cyberweek 2015. This online conference provides a week of activities and dialogue regarding the world of ODR. Cyberweek 2015 will take place beginning Monday, November 2nd and running through Friday, November 6th. And it’s FREE!
We are currently in the process of identifying potential activities for the conference. Here are some questions to help you consider developing a proposal.
•Is there an ODR topic on which you would like to give a live webinar? How will those interested in ODR benefit from your expertise? Would you like to convene a panel of 2-3 speakers on a topic?
•Do you have a burning question relevant to the world of ODR you feel would benefit from a large discussion? Would you be interested in facilitating a discussion forum based on these questions? How do you envision initiating this conversation? Is there anyone else you would ask to take part?
•Do you have an ODR related product you would like to demonstrate to a large audience of scholars, practitioners, and students?
•Do you have suggestions for organizing activities (simulations, competitions, podcasts, or anything else) that would enhance the Cyberweek experience?
•Do you have a topic that may be valuable to a newcomer to ODR? Do you have a topic that may be interesting to a longtime ODR practitioner?
**Once again Cyberweek will have a Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian track. Unlike past years, activities in these languages will be presented on the main Cyberweek platform, ADRHub.com. To propose activities in these languages, please contact Alberto Elisavetsky at Elisavetsky@gmail.com.
This will be the 18th iteration of Cyberweek. Since 2010, the Werner Institute has been assisting in the facilitation of Cyberweek by hosting it on the website www.ADRHub.com. Via this platform, thousands of participants have engaged in conversations with students, faculty members, and practitioners interested in the integration of technology into our dispute resolution processes. Once again, Cyberweek will be packed with engaging discussions forums, webinars, podcasts, demonstrations, simulations, and contests. We are also planning to integrate many of the latest innovations in social media to create an interesting and informative event.
