The annual, all-online and entirely free Cyberweek conference starts Monday, focused on the future of online dispute resolution and online justice. The conference is organized by the University of Massachusetts Center for Information Technology and Dispute Resolution and Here is the nutshell description:

Cyberweek consists of many different kinds of activities and opportunities, from Skypecasts to meetings in virtual worlds to Podcasts to discussion forums and more, all related to the topic of Online Dispute Resolution (ODR). Cyberweek is a free all-online conference and we invite you join us in both asynchronous and real-time events. Last year, we had several hundred participants from over forty countries and we are working to have a most ambitious program this year.

The schedule of events runs through the week. On Thursday, I will participate as a panel member in an online teleconference program, “Mediation Excellence in Cyberspace,” part of a three-day series of teleconferences on mediation excellence organized by John DeBruyn at CoADR Online.
