At the Fourth International Conference on Online Deliberation (OD2010) this year, Simon Buckingham Shum and the Hypermedia Discourse Team from KMi organized a workshop on Online Deliberation Emerging Tools.

Drawing on experiences spanning business, mass media, education, government and many other public sectors, the workshop considered the state of the art in tools that are emerging from the labs, reflecting on the lessons that are being learnt around the effective usage and deployment of these tools.
