ODR Cyberweek 2012, a free online event exploring the application of dispute resolution techniques in online environments, will be held Monday October 29 - Friday November 2, 2012 at

This year, one strand of the conference will focus on the use of information visualization techniques to help build understanding of ADR/ODR core concepts and promote social engagement with ADR/ODR tools and techniques.  Also of interest is the use of visualization techniques in the waging of social conflict, for instance in social change and human rights campaigns, as exemplified at Finally, we are interested in examples of the use of visualizations when working with parties engaged in complex conflicts as a way to help them move closer to agreement or conflict resolution.

Students and faculty in ADR courses or training programs as well as ADR/ODR practitioners are invited to submit creative visualizations of ADR/ODR core concepts or infoActivism campaign designs for display in an online gallery that will be highlighted during the Cyberweek conference. We are seeking infographics, mindmaps, illustrated quotes, visually interesting explanations of ADR terms, annotated videos and any other brief creative animations or data visualizations of topics related to our theme.  ADR-related terms for possible illustration can be found at or other locations.  Illustrations of terms of art unique to online dispute resolution would be especially welcomed.

Creative Tools: A wealth of free online tools are now available to help in the creation of infographics and other creative media. We recommend, for instance or or or for infographics, and or or for creative presentation platforms, and for data visualizations.

Submissions for the Visualizing ADR/ODR Cyberweek gallery should be emailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) by Friday October 26th for inclusion prior to the opening of the Cyberweek conference. The format can be a pdf or image file or information on where to find embed codes for use within the online gallery. If you are part of a whole class of students that may contribute, letting Bill know in advance will be useful, as will grouping all the submissions in one email. Late submissions will still be accepted throughout the week for people inspired to contribute. While we don’t yet have any prizes to award (it could happen!), forum contributors will surely be appreciated for their creativity, courageousness and community spirit and the discussion and learning and portfolio development that ensues will benefit us all.
