Call for Participation
Get the Good CRIS Going:
Ensuring Quality of Service for the User in the ERA
9th international Conference on Current Research Information Systems
June 5-7th, 2008 in Maribor, Slovenia
Organized by IZUM, Slovenia and euroCRIS
Quality and reliability are key factors for 
achieving the European Research Area (ERA). To
establish an environment where researchers, 
technology and knowledge freely circulate and
where national and regional research activities, 
programmes and policies are coordinated at
the European level, trust in the enabling 
information and technology is crucial. By ensuring
completeness, consistency and reliability of 
information and by providing dedicated services
to different groups of stakeholders, current 
research information systems (CRIS) play an
important role in the ERA e-Infrastructure.
CRIS 2008 focuses on how quality, reliability and 
trust can be established at different levels
of research information systems, and how they 
contribute to the overall quality of service
from a users point of view. The conference is 
aimed at promoting scientific discussion on
CRIS-related aspects and information exchange on 
best practice examples. CRIS 2008
continues the tradition of encouraging the 
sharing of experiences among developers,
producers and users of research information 
systems. CRIS 2008 seeks also to foster
discussion on novel approaches and ideas on 
international dialogue, pan-European
cooperation, and the transfer and use of information related to CRIS.
We warmly invite you to join us at CRIS 2008 in 
Maribor, Slovenia. CRIS 2008 is the first of
the euroCRIS series of conferences to be held in 
South East Europe, opening the door to
new aspects and new participants. CRIS 2008 
presents an exciting programme with keynote
lectures, paper presentations, workshops and a 
tutorial on CERIF, the Common European
Research Information Format promoted by euroCRIS.
Maribor, the capital of Styria (`tajerska), is 
the second largest city in Slovenia.
Simultaneously it is pleasantly small and lodged 
in the wonderful nature of Pohorje on the
one side and wine growing hills on the other, 
with the river Drava wending its way through it.
With its diverse and quality offers surrender to 
the best that one of the key tourist
destinations in Slovenia has to offer!
