Compendium Institute :: European Workshop 2006
29-30 June, 2006, Nantes
Compendium is an approach to crafting real time knowledge representations to support sensemaking. Grounded in the IBIS notation for conversational modelling, Compendium combines a hypermedia knowledge mapping tool which is optimized for real time use in discussions, with methods for group facilitation, systematic modelling, and dialogue mapping. Building on our successful 2005 workshop, the global Compendium community is growing rapidly.
This year's workshop and tutorial will be held in Nantes, as part of SdC 2006 - Semaine de la Connaissance ("Knowledge Week") where several major national conferences and workshops are being co-located to promote breadth and synergy. This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about the Compendium approach described in Simon Buckingham Shum's invited talk.
This workshop differs from other SdC workshops, being focused on a specific approach rather than serving as a forum around a broader research topic. The programme mixes a hands-on, tried+tested half-day tutorial with lots of hands-on exercises, followed by case studies, discussions and a final hands-on session when you can get 1-1 advice on Compendium's potential in your context.
You are welcome to come for as little
or as much as you wish! You don't have to let us know in advance, but we are interested to know how many we may have, so it would be great to hear from you if you plan to attend any parts of the event. Email us...
The working language will be English
Friday 30th June
Registration and Accommodation
Registration options are on the SdC website. The whole week is a very reasonable 170 Euros (200 Euros after 15 May). As we are a 2-day workshop, you should just pay for the whole week which will cover all your costs most cheaply, and of course give you access to the keynotes and any other conference or workshop tracks of interest (add 30 Euros and join the gala dinner!). You can book very reasonable accommodation via the SdC Accommodation Page, and Nantes Tourist Information has all you need to know to book your plane/train/automobile... and of course, to have a holiday while you're with us!
