ADR Cyberweek 2003 set for Feb. 24-28

From Ethan Katsh, director of the Center for Information Technology and Dispute Resolution at UMass/Amherst:

“The UMass Center for Information Technology and Dispute Resolution, in collaboration with the Online Dispute Resolution Section of the Association for Conflict Resolution, is pleased to be holding Cyberweek 2003 this year from February 24-28th. This is the fifth Cyberweek, a free all-online conference focused on the use of technology in dispute resolution. This is a conference that you can participate in from anywhere at anytime. Please register here and we will send you additional information prior to the start of Cyberweek.

“Cyberweek consists of online discussions, simulations and other activities that we hope will illustrate the opportunities and challenges provided by our new technologies. This year’s most ambitious activity is ICODR 2003, the International Competition for Dispute Resolution. ICODR 2002, held in conjunction with Cyberweek 2002, involved eleven schools in a negotiating competition. ICODR 2003 involves over thirty five schools from five continents in negotiation, mediation and arbitration competitions.”
