May 25 - 27, 2010
The rapid development of new and emerging technologies and services for information and knowledge management such as institutional repositories, cloud and grid computing, digital archiving and curation, Web 2.0 technologies among others are revolutionizing scholarship, publishing, and the storing and preservation of information. A different kind of student is also emerging (“the iPod generation”) with greater computer literacy and different kinds of expectations from the university experience. The deployment of powerful computers, high-speed networks, and large scale storage technologies has made the academic and research landscape increasingly dynamic. These transformations oblige us in academia, research and the general information service provision industry to seriously seek and develop strategies and solutions to effectively harness the new opportunities occasioned by these paradigm shifts while mitigating the challenges. The 3-day conference organized under the joint banner of the University of Botswana, University of Pretoria (South Africa) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, CSIR (South Africa) will address various issues of digital scholarship, digital curation and emerging technologies within the theme ‘Mapping and Demystifying Digital Scholarship: Trends, Challenges and Opportunities ‘ .
