Welcome to the DIAK Discussion Group Home page

What is this page and how should you use it?

This website has been created to form a wiki based on the discussions undertaken over the course of the year. It is the place to upload your comments, ideas and summaries of the discussions. This is the place where you can organise and expand on the different topics covered by the group.

Over the course of the year each group member will host at least one session, with the focus being driven by a point particularly relevant to them. After the session is over they will be responsible for creating a summary page and uploading it here. This will then form the basis for any further discussion or development.

The intention of this wiki is to allow researchers to quickly see the different topics and promote discussion and collaboration within the group and in the IdMRC.

What do you need to propose a discussion:

  • An idea of what would be an interesting topic either pertinent to your research specifically or of wider interest.
  • A brief introduction either in the form of a couple of slides or a poster to focus the initial discussion.
  • Finally, send all this to who will upload it to the page and sort out scheduling.

One final note - I (Phil) am available to help you with any of the above points and am more tha willing to help you refine any ideas you have or introduce new things to the discussion group. Last year for example a joint paper was produced for the Design '10 conference.
