A series of free webinars is being offered as a warm-up to the 2023 Expert Finder Systems International Forum. The first of these will be held on Thu Jul 21st, 2022 under the title "What Is a Research Information Management System? Q & A with RIM System Providers". It will be moderated by Rebecca Bryant from euroCRIS Strategic Partner OCLC and the panel will include representatives of Clarivate (Converis and Esploro), Elsevier (Pure), VIVO and Symplectic Elements.
The deadline for submitting the full, Procedia-formatted versions to be published in the CRIS2022 conference proceedings has been extended from Jun 15th to Jun 30th, 2022. Also, instead of using easyChair, the suggested delivery mechanism is to directly attach your doc or zip files in a message to the euroCRIS mailbox at eurocris [at] eurocris.org, ideally mentioning on the message subject the original submission number on easyChair. A confirmation of reception will be sent as the full versions of the contributions arrive.

Two important landmarks for CERIF
1. The CERIF API (version 1.0 - August 2015)
This release makes a few additions based on current experience with CERIF usage. On the other hand, the use of some attributes in the model is deprecated - these attributes will go away in a future release. The more appropriate way of expressing the information now is using a classification or federated identifiers.
See below for a detailed list of changes.
CERIF (the Common European Research Information Format) is:
- A concept about research entities and their relationships – Specification (Conceptual Level)
- A description of research entities and their relationships – Model (Logical Level)
- A formalization of research entities and their relationships – Database Scripts (Physical Level)

Update on forthcoming euroCRIS events
After over two years of online-only events – the Autumn 2019 membership meeting in Münster marked our last face-to-face meeting before the pandemic struck – we are happy to confirm that current plans are to hold the forthcoming CRIS2022 conference in Dubrovnik (Croatia) next May as an on-site-only event.
According to the information provided by the Croatian Ministry of the Interior, there are currently no travel restrictions in place for vaccinated attendees to enter the country. Nevertheless, having been made aware by some euroCRIS members that some countries of origin – or even some institutions – may still have restrictions in place for their citizens and/or staff come next May, the CRIS2022 call for proposals is also accepting submissions for remote presentations where their authors are not able to make it to the event. For conference registration purposes, at least one of the authors of an accepted submission will need to be registered for the event in order for a presentation to be included in the event programme, but it needn't be the presenter her or himself.
We are looking forward to being able to finally stage an on-site event again for this CRIS2022 conference. In the meantime we will provide any updated information on the circumstances around the pandemic in this section of our website. Should you have any questions in this regard please do not hesitate to reach out via email and we will get back in contact.
