The Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) - 22 February 2014 - Philadelphia, USA
The Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM) will be a one-day event with the focus very much on presentations made by speakers invited by the Technical Activities Coordinating Committee (TACC) and by the Information Trends and Opportunities Committee (ITOC). Tina Gheen of the Library of Congress is now Chair of ITOC and leads a new team of 7 committee members ; we have already identified prospective organisations/speakers to invite to present on key topics/developments that are of the moment and of the future, and of direct relevance to the ICSTI membership. We’ll let you know the list of TACC and ITOC speakers in due course.
We have decided to hold the AMM on the day preceding the NFAIS Annual Conference (23-25 February). NFAIS are of course an Associate member of ICSTI and their conference theme, ‘Giving Voice to Content’, resonates well with issues that concern us all. NFAIS have generously agreed to offer the NFAIS member rate to those ICSTI members registering for their conference. And we have negotiated the same preferential room rate at the Hyatt Hotel, which is the venue for the meetings.
General Assembly and Annual Conference - 18-21 October 2014 - Tokyo, Japan
ICSTI’s Annual Conference will be held in Tokyo at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation on 18-21 October, and will be hosted by JST, the Japan Science and Technology Agency. The National Diet Library, National Institute of Informatics, and National Association of Information Professionals are developing the conference theme to encompass Innovation, the STM Information Cycle and Data Driven R and D. JST will present latest news of the conference program at the Annual Members’ Meeting.
All information for both events to come in due course.
