2. Structure

We introduced a panel discussion for the 2012 meeting, which, according to the feedback received, was very popular. The brainstorming session on collaboration also received favourable comments. However some participants felt that, in general, presentations were too rushed, and that there should be more time or less presentations. What do you think? Do you have suggestions for improving the structure of the meeting?

2.0 Overall

  • Organize conference room with many videos able to spread different "channels" (Twitter, Pad, Video, ...)
  • Room (space/time) for short presentations/discussions (during breaks?)
  • Organize online questionnaire for feedback

2.1 Twitter

  • Start posting on Twitter contents of MSIS 2013 already during design
  • Post title and link of Papers as soon as available
  • Use tweets also to ask questions in sessions
  • Monitor tweets coming from remote attenders (see Streaming video)

2.2 Streaming video

  • Try to organize streaming video on the Web

2.3 EtherPad

  • Try to organize in advance some tool like EtherPad to discuss ongoing sessions
  • No labels
