colleagues who might be interested.

Title: Research in the 21st Century: Data, Analytics and Impact

Date: 19th June 2015 (+ optional hackday, 20th June)

Venue: Business School, University of Edinburgh

Registration: http://reconevent.com/

This conference focusses on changes and developments in *research
communication* in academia and how this affects *research careers*. Talks
will include dealing with vast volumes of data, publishing and the use of
metrics. A number of factors are influencing the way we communicate
research in 2015 including new technologies, the assessment of research
impact and pressures on researchers. ReCon will include speakers from
government agencies, academics, publishers, people working in outreach and
founders of startups working in the research space.

This is the third time that we have run this highly successful conference
that is unique to Scotland, last year we attracted 150 delegates and
several hundred more online.

We hope that you can join us! You can book your ticket here
