IASSIST 2012 - Registration Now Open

Topic:

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the IASSIST 2012 Conference!

IASSIST 2012 conference site: http://www.iassist2012.org/index.html

Conference Theme: Data Science for a Connected World: Unlocking and Harnessing the Power of Information

Dates: June 4th – 8th, Washington D.C. USA.

Register before May 1st to take advantage of special conference and workshops rates. Fees and other details are available at: http://www.iassist2012.org/indexfolder/Register/index.php

The theme “Data Science for a Connected World: Unlocking and Harnessing the Power of Information” reflects the growing desire of research communities, government agencies and other organizations to build connections and benefit from the better use of data through practicing good management, dissemination and preservation techniques.

Information about the papers, panels, and other events can be found at: http://www.iassist2012.org/indexfolder/program

The theme for IASSIST 2012 is also reflective of this year's host city and nation's capital: Washington, DC. The seat of many US government agencies, as well as major international institutions like the World Bank and IMF, Washington is an ideal backdrop for discussing the importance of data sharing and management or international best practices. The city is also known for its vibrant nightlife, emerging cultural scene, historical sites, and free museums (check out post- conference tours options!).

We look forward to welcoming you to Washington DC for the IASSIST 2012 Conference.
