Duration: 2 hours (no travel required)
Purpose: Introduction of the collaborative capabilities developed to-date and the elicitation of feedback from the community regarding their collaboration needs and desires. The event will be hosted in the 3D environment and be limited to no more than 80 attendees. The topics to be presented and discussed will be:

  • Introduction of the capabilities built to-date (10 minute intro/40 minute core/10 minute break)
    • Collaboration work flow (general)
    • Asynchronous collaboration - Collaborative portal (CP)
    • Synchronous collaboration – 3D environment
  • Open discussion and feedback on community collaboration needs and desires (50 minutes w/10 minutes for next steps)
    • Day-to-day collaboration & awareness
    • Focused crisis response planning and action

Virtual Iterative Workshop Series (VIWS-3)
Status: Completed [Workshop Web Page and After Event Materials]
Title: H1N1 Crisis Content
Date: October 28, 2009
Duration: 2 hours (no travel required)
Purpose: Preparation for the upcoming scenario driven experiment series on a H1N1 outbreak. The presentation of related resources and data will be presented to the community in order to obtain feedback on what is useful and desirable for a pandemic crisis planning.

  • Presentation of current resources and data available through the CP and 3D environment
  • Open discussion and feedback on community resource needs and desires

Virtual Collaboration Environment Experiment (VCEE-0)
Status: Completed
Title: Virtual Collaboration Environment (VCE) - Tests
Date: December 14-18, 2009
Duration: 5 days (not continuous & no travel required)
Purpose: OpenVCE.net team and others in WoSCR community to test VCE support for a scenario driven (H1N1 outbreak) experiment.


Virtual Collaboration Environment Experiment (VCEE-1)
Status: Completed
Title: Virtual Collaboration Protocol (VCP) Experiment
Date: January 25-29, 2010
Duration: 5 days (not continuous & no travel required)
Purpose: Host a scenario driven (H1N1 outbreak) experiment to continue the investigation of the virtual collaboration protocol (VCP) only after modifications have been made to the VCP from experiment-1. Two small planning teams with members from non-government, government, and military agencies will plan actions in response to the H1N1 outbreak scenario. One team will use the VCP while the other will not while both teams will use the same collaboration technologies.


Post Experiment Review (PER-1)
Status: Completed
Title: Virtual Collaboration Protocol (VCP) Experiment Review
Date: January 29, 2010
Duration: 2 hours (no travel required)
Purpose: Review of experiment  issues and lessons learned.

 


 

Virtual Collaboration Environment Experiment (VCEE-2)
Status: Completed
Title: Virtual Collaboration Protocol & Environment
Date: February 22-26, 2010
Duration: 5 days (not continuous & no travel required)
Purpose: Host a scenario driven (H1N1 outbreak) experiment to investigate the effectiveness of the virtual collaboration protocol (VCP) and the virtual collaboration environment (VCE = collaboration portal & 3D environment). Two moderate sized planning teams with members from non-government, government, and military agencies will plan actions in response to the H1N1 outbreak scenario. One team will use the VCP+E while the other will use traditional means (email, phone, video-conferencing, etc.).


Post Experiment Review (PER-2)
Status: Completed
Title: Virtual Collaboration Protocol (VCP) Experiment Review
Date: February 26, 2010
Duration: 2 hours (no travel required)
Purpose: Review of experiment  issues and lessons learned.
