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 being within call of daily workplace responsibilities.
