Scientists, researchers and scholars generate increasingly vast amounts of digital data, with further investment in digitization and purchase of digital content and information. The scientific record and the documentary heritage created in digital form are at risk from technology obsolescence, from the fragility of digital media, and from lack of the basics of good practice, such as adequate documentation for the data.

Since 1968 the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) has become a forum for the substantive interchange of ideas in all areas of information systems and technology. The objective of the conference is to provide a unique environment in which researchers and practitioners in the information, computer and system sciences can frankly exchange and discuss their research ideas, techniques and applications. Registration is limited.

Event: Computer Supported Cooperative Work Conference

Location: Savannah, Georgia, USA
Dates: 6-10 February, 2011
Web: http://www.cscw2010.org

The conference brings together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both the technical and social aspects of collaboration. In recent years the conference has moved beyond traditional "work" to include the broader issues of how we play, socialize, and compete - all forms of collaborative activity that are now mediated by technologies. As more and more people in all regions of the globe are able to interact online we are rapidly moving toward a Computer Supported Cooperative World. Appropriate topic areas for CSCW include all contexts in which technology is used to mediate human activities such as communication, coordination, cooperation, competition, entertainment, education, medicine, art, and music.

Since 1937, the American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) has been the society for information professionals leading the search for new and better theories, techniques, and technologies to improve access to information. ASIS&T brings together diverse streams of knowledge, focusing disparate approaches into novel solutions to common problems. ASIS&T bridges the gaps not only between disciplines, but also between the research that drives and the practices that sustain new developments. ASIS&T counts among its membership some 4,000 information specialists from such fields as computer science, linguistics, management, librarianship, engineering, law, medicine, chemistry, and education.
