As part of the 2016 Annual Members’ Meeting (AMM), the ICSTI ITOC and TACC committees will organize two workshops. Both will explore the common theme of
Text and Data Mining.
The workshops will provide a forum for presenting how a number of different communities are exploring TDM opportunities. Attendees will be offered the chance to interact with and learn from eminent experts covering a number of domains - including libraries, publishers and scientists - who will address the theme from multiple perspectives. A wide range of disciplines, such as the life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities, will be represented, discussing new solutions, challenges and strategies focusing on TDM.
We are delighted to confirm the participation in these two workshops of Justin Fessler, IBM Watson Solutions ; Heather Joseph, SPARC ; Peter Mutschke, GESIS ; Chris Shillum, Elsevier ; Alex Wade, Microsoft Research ; Chuck Koscher, Crossref ; Peter Murray-Rust, University of Cambridge ; Babis Marmanis, CCC ; and Sayeed Choudhury, Johns Hopkins University.
Margret Plank and Brian Hitson, as Chairs of ITOC and TACC, will chair the sessions.
Both workshops will be open to non-ICSTI delegates. Click the ’Workshops’ tab for the Workshop Programs.
As is now customary, the opening session of the day, the Annual Members’ Meeting, will be devoted to ICSTI running and governance, and reserved for members. (Agenda and supporting material prepared for the AMM will be uploaded on the Members’ Area page for members to retrieve and print out. There will be no hardcopy distribution).
