[ba-ohs-talk] CORRECTED: 2002 PhD on Compendium (Knowledge Media Institute, Open U., UK)

<<< sorry - I forgot to append the main advert to my preamble! >>>    (01)

Dear IBIS/VIMS/Dialog Mapping/Compendium colleagues(!)    (02)

[with apologies to those of you on >1 of the above groups]    (03)

One of the PhD projects available is to work on some aspect of the 
IBIS/VIMS/Dialog Mapping-related Compendium method and toolset:    (04)

    http://kmi.open.ac.uk/news/compendium2002.html    (05)

I am particularly interested in people with interest - and ideally 
experience - in meeting facilitation/group dynamics (virtual or 
co-present meetings), so that we can study the human dynamics of 
Compendium in various contexts.    (06)

However, I am also keen to hear from Java developers with a vision of 
how to advance the state of the art.    (07)

Please get in touch ASAP to discuss if interested - these 
studentships are highly competitive.    (08)

Cheers,    (09)

Simon    (010)
