A very interesting conference coming up this June in Ottawa. I'm almost certain that I'll be there.
ICSTI's 2009 Public conference will take place on June 9 and 10, 2009 at Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Speakers from Canada, the United States and Europe will address:
- How eScience affects the way libraries, publishers and scientists relate to each other.
- How the era of "big data" will enable enhanced experimentation and collaboration in science.
The conference program will inform researchers, scientific, technical and medical (STM) publishers, IM/IT professionals, chief information officers, and librarians about specific data initiatives of experts from Microsoft, the San Diego Super-Computing Center, Indiana University, Carleton University (ODESI Project), the British Library, and other institutions.
The program looks great!
ICSTI is the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information. Canada's national science library, CISTI, is organizing the conference.
