DIS PhD students to organise Research2 conference 2011

June 1, 2011

After hosting a successful Research2 conference in 2010 for Library and Information Science PhD students from across the UK, research students from the Department of Information Science enthusiastically welcomed the opportunity to organise a follow-up in 2011. As a natural progression from the 2010 theme of Research Methodologies, the theme for this year’s conference is Data Analysis.

With financial support from the Higher Education Academy and from Loughborough University, it has been possible to offer all 60 places at no charge to delegates. The response has been overwhelming; all 60 places were filled more than a week before the registration deadline, with Information Science and Computer Science PhD students registering from universities all over the country. The conference will be based in the Graduate School in the Stewart Mason Building and the Department of Information Science on the 7th and 8th of July.

Guest speakers, including notable academics, will discuss novel and interesting ways of analysing data, and student-led presentations will share experiences of particular aspects of data analysis. The Conference Organising Committee, chaired by Clare Ravenwood (2nd Year PhD student), has designed the schedule so that the conference will provide both an opportunity to learn about data analysis methods and resources from experts and time to share practice and knowledge between students.
