weTable Users' Conference

weTable Users' Conference

Join us for this historic gathering of weTable users to learn from experts and peers in the use of low-cost, do-it-yourself touchtables that can enhance and improve community planning and decision making. The tool is a non-proprietary tool built using off-the-shelf equipment. Learn how to build and use a weTable and get hands-on exposure to a range of tools and techniques compatible with the weTable, including mapping, group brainstorming tools, and 2D and 3D visualization tools. The training agenda will include weTable case studies, as well as presentations on the future directions of participatory planning and technology. This training is a must for programs that want to improve public outreach and create more dynamic, engaging workshops. AICP members will be able to return to their home programs with the skills to set up the weTable in local workshops and will have a foundation of knowledge to develop innovative applications of the weTable in planning workshops.

This two-day workshop will be held at the historic Rice Lofts in Downtown Houston, organized by the Texas Sea Grant program of Texas A&M University, PlaceMatters and the Delaware Sea Grant program of the University of Delaware. Attendees to the Users' conference will include coastal planners, environmental resource managers, educators, public outreach professionals, and hazard management agencies from across the country. Financial support for this event was provided by NOAA, U.S. EPA, and the Ford Foundation. Registration and logistics information for the conference can be found on the conference website.

AICP attendees will be eligible for 10 CM credits.

The conference will be held at Rice Lofts in Downtown Houston. Registration includes materials and lunch for both days.
