I registered recently to add the 2011 Science of Team Science Conference, hosted by Northwestern University’s NUCATS Institute and its Research Team Support & Development office. I couldn’t be more excited. I wasn’t able to attend last year’s conference because of my heavy travel schedule for the SLA research grant, so I’m thrilled to be able to attend this year.
I’ve been virtually attending last year’s conference via the PPT and MP3 recordings they’ve posted for each session. This is a treasure trove of information and worth perusing. I’ve listened to several presentations so far and have read the minutes, which are well done and really capture the essence of each conversation. They even captured the Q&A sessions!
I think it will be especially interesting to attend in my dual role as social science researcher and practitioner, as this doesn’t seem to be very common. I have to admit, I’ve been a little disappointed about the lack of discussion about libraries, librarians or even information management. I may submit a poster on that topic, just to make sure it makes it onto the radar.
