I just saw a call for papers about 'collective decision making, pasted below.
This thread was triggered by a comment 'are there alternative ways to promote research?'
starting from the criticism  that that today, given available technology, research evaluation could become a collective process and not remain solely confined to the judgement of a handful of a journal editors, who may be busy and have their own priorities at heart, and far too many personal interests and opinions, to pay impartial justice to good research and the progress of science for its own sake.
Following the many ideas that are coming up here, I wonder if there is scope for a collective paper?
Anyone who'd like to discuss ideas please mail me and I ll summarise for the list.

LCD'07 : Workshop on Logics and Collective Decision making
March 13-14, 2007
Erasmus International Institute MSH Nord-Pas-de-Calais
We would like to welcome you to a workshop on the connections between logics and collective decision making theories that is to take place in Lille on March 13-14, 2007.
Group decision-making problems occur every time a collective choice has to be made from several individuals that have conflicting interests or preferences. There has been recently a growing interest on the use of logic as the basic tool for formalizing and computing those problems. This is in particular true in two close fields of research. The first one lies at the intersection of game theory and logics, especially by exploring how modal logics may be used to model and reason about games. A second one, which focuses on the logical insights into rational collective choice, has recently emerged around problems of judgment aggregation and beliefs/goals merging, on the one hand, and logical formalization of welfare distribution processes (social software), on the other. These two domains propose further formal refinements, using logical tools, of the classical theories of collective decision-making, by offering new evaluation criteria of and new ways of building social choice procedures. The workshop aims at sparking off interaction between social choice theorists, computer scientists, logicians and philosophers.
The workshop will take place at the University of Lille 3, Villeneuve d'Ascq, France.
Invited Speakers
Ken Binmore (DE, University College London)
Franz Dietrich (University of Maastricht and LSE)
Wiebe van der Hoek (DCS, University of Liverpool)
Gabriella Pigozzi (CSC, University of Luxembourg)
The aim of this workshop is to promote interaction between researchers in the areas of logics and collective decision-making theories.
We invite submissions of abstracts in the interface of the above or related areas that investigate common problems. A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest include
+logics of collective decision-making and social software
+belief merging and judgment aggregation
+social-choice theoretical approaches to logics and to the philosophy of logics
+logics and deliberative democracy
+preference representation and social choice

Submission details
Authors should send an abstract (in pdf, postscript or word format) to lcd07@xxxxxxxxxx by January, 31st. Submissions should typically be 3 pages long (excluding bibliographical references). There will be no published proceedings, so there is no copyright problem for presenting works already published. The mail should contain the authors' name, affiliation(s) and current position(s). We strongly encourage PhD students to submit, as we might organize a student session. Notification of acceptance will be given by February, 9th.
