UK presence at upcoming euroCRIS conference
The biennial euroCRIS conference takes place in Prague next week (CRIS 2012, 6-9 June), with a growing UK presence. Looking at the programme, there are six UK papers, up from three in 2010. This is a clear indication of the significant impact of JISC programmes including Research Information Management (RIM), within the international CRIS community. The UK papers include presentations of JISC RIM and Managing Research Data (MRD) project findings as well as work not directly funded by JISC (abeit closely related). Mahendra Mahey of the Innovation Support Centre together with Niamh Brennan (Trinity College Dublin) will present the CERIFy project which was led jointly by UKOLN and TCD (Using business process mapping to engage with Research Information Management processes and the CERIF data model). Others are CERIF in Action, CERIF for Datasets (C4D), Project Snowball and RMAS, the Research Management & Administration System. Topic areas include national CRIS, university CRIS, data, semantics, identifiers, data models. Looks like a great programme.
