Register now for this upcoming NISO virtual conference:

*Research Information Networks: The Connections Enabling Collaboration*

*Date & Time: Wednesday, August 16, 2017, 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Eastern)*

Many in the academic community have heard about research information
systems (RIS); these are increasingly sophisticated systems that capture
various data surrounding the funding, workflow and final output of the
research process for purposes of analysis and assessment. The next phase of
development for RIS is to network researchers in the interest of building
strategic research initiatives and effective collaborations. This
conference will look at the vision for and the progress being made in
various initiatives. How might research information systems become more
tightly integrated with workflow applications? The data captured in an RIM
or CRIS system is significant and should drive increased functionality and
accruing value. The event will spotlight entities that foster—through the
development of resources or networks—the ability of researchers to identify
and connect with collaborators for their work.

NISO Virtual Conferences draw upon the expertise of information industry
professionals who work in a variety of settings and each bring to the
discussion a different perspective on the complexities of the modern
information environment. Our 11 a.m. start time and two additional breaks
provided during the course of the six-hour event allow registrants to
listen to and benefit from a professionally developed agenda while still
