II World Congress of CDS/ISIS: September 20 – 23

CDS/ISIS-W2: Welcome!

This meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to reunite once again the international CDS/ISIS community, summoning information, computer science professionals, national and regional distributors, end users, partner organizations and all those people interested in the "Family of CDS/ISIS software" who have contributed, throughout the years, to the democratic and equitable access to the data produced or collected in thousands of institutions worldwide.

This year, the venue of the ICML9 / CRICS7 offers the adequate framework for celebrating the II World Congress on CDS/ISIS since BIREME/PAHO/WHO is, historically the main partner of UNESCO in the development and support of the CDS/ISIS.

Upon the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the first World congress and 20 years after the launching of CDS/ISIS and adhering to the motto of the ICML9/CRICS7 "Commitment to equity", the moment is propitious to exchange experiences, to present new developments, to get to know new colleagues from different parts of the world, to evaluate the CDS/ISIS journey and construct a shared vision for the future, continuing, with the help of information technologies, to the human development.
