CFP: IASSIST 2017 Data in the Middle: The common language of research (May 2017 Lawrence, Kansas)

Data in the Middle: The common language of research
The 43rd annual conference of the International Association for Social Science Information Services and Technology (IASSIST) will be held in Lawrence, Kansas from May 23-16, 2017. #iassist17

Many issues around data (sources, strategies, and tools) are similar across disciplines. While IASSIST has its roots in social science data, it has also welcomed discussions over the years of other disciplines' issues as they relate to data, data management, and support of users. So again this year, in line with this tradition, we are arranging a conference that will benefit those who support researchers across all disciplines: social sciences, health and natural sciences, and humanities. Please join the international data community in Lawrence, KS, "in the middle" of the U.S., for insights and discussion on how data in all disciplines are found, shared, used, and managed. Join us and draw inspiration from this diverse gathering! 

We welcome submissions for papers, presentations, panels, posters, and pecha kuchas.

The full Call for Proposals, along with the link to the submission form, can be accessed on the conference website here:
