CADRe renamed Collaborative Modeling for Decision Support

Since the CADRe (Computer Aided Dispute Resolution) group formed, there have been concerns about the name not being inclusive enough, and implying that there are active conflicts.

During the 2009 workshop, through a lively discussion it was clear that the group needed a new name. After the 2009 workshop, a renaming task committee led a democratic process, and agreement was reached on "Collaborative Modeling for Decision Support" with the tag line: "Integrating collaborative modeling with participatory processes to inform natural resources decisions."
