The Joint Information Systems Committee and the Coalition for Networked Information are hosting a major international conference at the Moat House Hotel, Stratford upon Avon in June 2000.
The conference will bring together experts from both the United States and the United Kingdom with keynote addresses from speakers from the National Science Foundation, the British Library, CNI and the JISC. Parallel sessions will explore and contrast major developments that are happening on both sides of the Atlantic in fields such as Intellectual Property Rights, Digital Preservation, Middleware, access to digital resources and virtual universities. It should be of interest to all senior management in information systems in the education community, and those responsible for delivering digital services and resources for learning, teaching and research.
The conference will follow immediately after a NSF/JISC Workshop on the NSF Digital Libraries initiative, being held at the same venue.
The conference will run from Wednesday 14th June until Friday 16th June and an on-line registration form is now available. The cost is £325 per person for delegates registering before 30th April 2000, and £375 after this date. The cost includes all conference accommodation, meals and materials. Early booking is advised.
