CUSA participated in the Designing Citizen Diplomacy Workshop on January 27th and 28th, 2011. The goal of this two-day workshop was to build a research agenda and research community on the topic of citizen diplomacy. Citizen diplomacy combines the objectives of soft diplomacy with the use of social media to connect citizens in the developing world with the developed world. This workshop builds on the notion of Human-Centered Computing to describe our interest in Humanity-Centered Computing. As we all know, the vision of future wars is based on advances in computing. But, for a change let us instead visualize advances in computing that can be used for improving humanity – for fostering understanding, building bridges among different cultures, improving education in the poorest and remotest parts of the world and reducing violence. We have been dreaming about a community of scientists who will channel their computing expertise toward bringing peace and welfare in the otherwise rapidly deteriorating situation in the world. The long-term objective of citizen diplomacy is to increase the level of global peace and we believe that social media is a tool through which this can be achieved. Ramesh Jain in the Department of Computer Science and Gloria Mark in the Department of Informatics were the organizing committee for this workshop.
