Call for proposals for the 36th IAMSLIC Conference

Dear Colleagues,

The planning for the 36th IAMSLIC Conference is well underway. But we need one crucial element — you!
We invite submissions of proposals for papers, posters, workshops, and panel session.

Since the theme is Netting Knowledge: Two Hemispheres-One World , we are looking for your insights on sharing and managing marine & aquatic science data, information and knowledge and its retrieval, renewal and use. How are we adopting, negotiating, repelling, embracing and developing strategies to provide the best possible knowledge and information services to our clientele?

Some potential topics:

  • Information/knowledge services for our clients: new capabilities, new utilities, new opportunities, new problems
  • Dealing with digital media
  • Creating savvy researchers: extending theoretical knowledge to field research
  • Assessment: website performance measures; survey design; partnerships
  • Importance of research and documentation in the digital age
  • Collaboration with staff/faculty and becoming part of the publishing team
  • Disaster planning around the world
  • User advisory committees; user-driven services; improvements to existing services
  • Writing successful grant applications
  • Personnel: successful recruitment, coaching and retirement

For complete details, including what to include in your proposal, see the conference web site.

Please email conference proposals to Marcia.croyvanwely@dfo-mpo.gc.ca by April 9, 2010.

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Argentina in October.

Marcia Croy Vanwely, Chair/Convenor IAMSLIC 2010
