The Objective of this Workshop is to identify major opportunities and impediments to providingbetter real-time information to actors directly involved in situations that could lead to deadly violence. We will consider several scenarios of potential violence drawn from recent country cases, and consider a set of technologies, applications and strategies that have been particularly useful—or could be, if better adapted for conflict prevention or mitigation by people in a position to do so.
