I just made my travel arrangements for IASSIST 2010.
This year's conference is hosted by the Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER). IASSIST is an annual conference that meets in the US one year, and then somewhere outside of the US the following year, and so there is often a relatively strong global view among the attendees. This is the third IASSIST conference I've had the opportunity to attend.
For those not familiar with the IASSIST conferences it brings together people from the world of data archives, information technology, and library systems. I often see familiar faces from the Coalition for Networked Information member meetings at IASSIST.
I'm giving a paper on Thursday (June 3rd) afternoon about our NIH Challenge grant cloud computing project where we're evaluating the suitable of the "cloud" as an access mechanism for restricted-use research data. My talk is called Exploring New Methods for Protecting and Distributing Confidential Research Data and is part of a larger session called Secure Remote Access to Restricted Data.
I hope to see you there!
