This symposium brings together a panel of experts in computer science, biology and physics to discuss the ways that scientists use the Internet to create knowledge, disseminate and share data and communicate ideas, opinions and concepts. With examples from their own experience, the panelists will highlight some of the greatest opportunities and challenges new technologies offer the sciences. We will also explore the issue of whether the use of the Internet for scholarly communication in science differs from its use in the social sciences or humanities.
RSVP by October 28 to Bill Olsen, Social Sciences Bibliographer, at email@example.com or 202-687-9012.
