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 http://www.eurocris.org/conferences/cris2004/index.html Bets wishes David David C Prosser PhD Director SPARC Europe E-mail: david.prosser AT bodley.ox.ac.uk Tel: +44 (0) 1865 284 451 Mobile: +44 (0) 7974 673 888 http://www.sparceurope.org <http://www.sparceurope.org/>
