The Third Guelph Symposium on Computer Mediated Communication


May 14 - 17, 1990

University of Guelph
Guelph, Ontario, Canada

The urgent problems of the 1990's require newly synthesized knowledge,
judgement and insight for their solution. Technologies that amass and
distribute information continue to proliferate; however, technologies alone
are merely tools. Solutions, being creative products of the human
mind, may fail to appear without the stimulus of discussion and the synergy
of shared construction and evaluation. Only communication technologies
that enable human-to-human exponential creativity can hope to intercept
the accelerating crises of our global environment and economy.

The Third Guelph Symposium presents reports from three continents on the
latest research and applications of computer mediated communication as it
unlocks human potential within individuals, organizations and communities.

An extra-fee seminar on Monday, May 14 offers a showcase of interactive
and database technology at work. University of Guelph faculty and staff
will demonstrate and describe a wide range of computer-based interactive
and informational activities that have been taking place on this campus
throughout the last decade.

Who should attend?

Educators will benefit from a number of papers addressing the explosion
of educational applications of computer mediating communication.
Applications for distance education, post-secondary on-campus programs
and primary and secondary schools will be discussed.

Managers integrating computer conferencing, electronic mail systems,
networks and computer-assisted training programs will gain insight into the
latest applications for their companies.

Researchers will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with their
colleagues who are active world-wide in the computer mediated
communication field.

Community Developers will discover the value of personal communication
via computers as a community building tool for scattered populations.

Evaluators considering adopting their own in-house computer mediated
communication systems will find valuable background information and
make many worthwhile contacts at the conference.
