Dear All
I wanted to bring to your attention a meeting next May in Antwerp -
CRIS2004.  CRIS stands for Current Research Information Systems and
deals with any 'information tool dedicated to provide access to and
disseminate research information'.  To date, it would appear that a lot
of people who work in this field are interested in research databases,
detailing grants proposals and funding decisions, etc.
However, there may be scope to integrate this work into that being done
in the OAI field.  You could image a system (repository) that contains
information on research projects from the initial grant applications
through the results and pre-prints to the final published research
papers.  It certainly makes sense to see if there are areas of overlap
between CRIS and OAI.  There may be both technological and political
advantages in integrating such systems.
My apologies if this is well-know to you all, but if not the conference
website is at
Bets wishes
