Right now I am at the TACOS conference in York. Quick Blurb-
On 14 May 2014 the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) is hosting a one-day seminar on behalf of FISH and HEIRNET at the University of York to discuss common issues facing the historic environment information sector and make progress towards a shared vision and agenda for historic environment information management.
The key aims of the seminar are to:
Encourage discussion between different groups that produce and manage historic environment information from across the sector (professional, research and voluntary to identify common goals and issues.
Develop information sharing networks and working partnerships across the sector to pool resources particularly in the areas of skills development and application of information technology.
