Welcome to the Beyond Threaded Conversation CHI2005 Workshop Wiki

This site includes position papers discussed at the Beyond Threaded Conversation CHI 2005 Workshop on April 3, 2005. See the extended abstract for a summary of what the workshop was about.

Note: due to spammer vandalism, this site is no longer open for editing

The papers all relate to online conversation systems and describe either existing systems (e.g., LiveJournal, Everything2) or prototype systems (e.g., Deme, Kontiki) that take online conversation "beyond" the traditional threaded model we are all familiar with. In addition, the site includes a draft DesignSpace document outlining some of the design issues related to online conversation. During the workshop alternative design spaces were discussed and there was no general consensus on one particular framework, but the discussion of the important factors in designing online conversation systems was informative and helped us think through how various systems relate to one another and what possibilities for design remain unexplored.

This site will continue to be used to provide comments on workshop papers by workshop participants and the public. Feel free to post upcoming conversation-related conferences or links to other useful resources and research.

Note: You'll have to Login before you can make any changes to the Wiki pages. However, you don't need to in order to post comments.
