The International Conference on Trends for Scientific Information Professionals.
For those in the sci-tech world, sharing best practices, networking and evaluating trends have become matters of considerable importance, and the annual ICIC Meeting & Exhibition is the significant forum for this, attracting over 200 attendees from the main sci-tech companies and information, service or software providers.
Dr Haxel has launched the programme of the International Conference on Trends for Scientific Information Professionals.
We are pleased to announce the date and venue for the next Pharma-Bio-Med Conference & Exposition. The conference will be held at the beautiful NH Laguna Palace Hotel located in Mestre-Venice, Italy, November 14-16, 2011.
Pharma-Bio-Med is the premier Conference & Exposition in Europe tailored specifically to the interests of Information and Informatics Professionals working within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biomedical, medical, and health sciences industries.
The 6th annual conference will feature a strong programme and is the ideal forum for continuing education, professional development, networking, and the sharing and benchmarking of information best practices.

A great initiative by the famous Faculty of 1000…
The early scientific information presented in conference posters is universally agreed to be an important resource but, unfortunately, it is almost always completely lost once a conference is over.
As a result, posters are only viewed by a handful of people before they disappear, either forever or until the research is later published as a paper. Some important work may never get published, particularly if it focuses on negative results or case studies. The system of removing posters from view after a conference is over represents a vast loss to the scientific community of unique and potentially valuable information.
The open access F1000 Posters will provide a permanent, structured environment for the deposition of posters as well as a trustworthy venue for ongoing discussion and development of the information being presented.
Good luck to this great idea!
Online Information, the largest UK event dedicated to the information industry, will host The European Librarians Theatre at this year’s exhibition.
The theatre will feature panel discussions focussing on topical issues facing librarians. The discussions will be led by speakers from a number of different European countries to provide a variety of viewpoints. These sessions will address the impact of new technologies on the role of the librarian and library management.
SLA Europe has enlisted expert panellists from across Europe, and the wider world. Together with their audiences they will examine the impact of digitisation, mobile technologies and social media on librarians, libraries and their users.
Panellists from Italy, France , the Netherlands and the UK are expected to exchange their experiences of libraries going digital.
In putting social media under the spotlight, Jakob Harnesk from EBSCO and a panel from Spain, France (including myself!), Sweden and the UK will draw on evidence from Europe-wide surveys to help predict the future for 21st century librarians.

The International Council for Scientific & Technical Information (ICSTI) has announced that its Winter Meeting will be held from February 6-7, 2011, and will be followed by a Workshop, the theme for which will be ‘Multimedia and Visualisation Innovations for Science’, on February 8, 2010.
The Workshop will be open to both members and non-members. Both events will be hosted by Microsoft, an ICSTI member, on their Redmond campus, WA, USA.
Multimedia and visualisation tools and technology are seen to offer tremendous opportunity for accelerating scientific discovery.
This workshop will feature leading-edge innovations in science-oriented web multimedia, large-scale data exploration and visualisation, speech and object recognition, image indexing and analysis, human/computer interaction and virtual environments, among other topics.
Presentations will be made by technology, science, and information professionals across the broad spectrum of academia, government, business, and industry.
An article in Scientometrics is contesting the leadership of the Science Citation Index:
Some of the conclusions and statements:
“The number of serious scientific journals today most likely is about
“The first question is whether the growth rate of scientific publication
is declining? The answer is that traditional scientific publishing, that is publication in peer-reviewed journals, is still increasing although there are big differences between fields. There are no indications that the growth rate has decreased in the last 50 years. At the same time, publication using new channels, for example conference proceedings, open archives and home pages, is growing fast.”
“SCI is covering a decreasing part of the traditional scientific literature“
“conference proceedings are especially important in scientific fields
with high growth rates. However, the growth rates for conference proceedings generally are not higher than those found for Journal Articles. It is clear that the increasing importance of conference proceedings is only partially reflected in SCI.”
“National Science Indicators is one of the products offered by Thomson
Reuters. Since this product is based solely on SCI/SCIE, SSCI and AHCI
the use of this product is problematic“
