JISC and CNI International Conference:
BRINGING COHERENCE TO NETWORKED INFORMATION
FOR THE NEW CENTURY
Stratford upon Avon
June 14-16, 2000
We are pleased to announce that the U.K. Joint Information Systems
Committee and the Coalition for Networked Information are hosting a
major international conference at the Moat House Hotel, Stratford
upon Avon on June 14-16, 2000.
The conference will bring together experts from both the United States
and the United Kingdom with keynote addresses from speakers from the
National Science Foundation, the British Library, CNI and the JISC.
Lynne Brindley, incoming Chief Executive of the British Library, will
provide one of the keynotes.
Parallel sessions will explore and contrast major developments that are
happening on both sides of the Atlantic in fields such as intellectual
property rights, digital preservation, middleware, access to digital
resources and virtual universities. It should be of interest to all
senior management in information services in the education community,
and those responsible for delivering digital services and resources for
learning, teaching and research.
The conference will follow immediately after a NSF/JISC Workshop on the
NSF Digital Libraries Initiative, being held at the same venue.
The conference will run from Wednesday 14th June until Friday 16th June.
An on-line registration form can be found at

The cost is 325 pounds per person for delegates registering before 30th
April 2000, and 375 pounds after this date. The cost includes all
conference accommodation, meals and materials. Early booking is advised.
