After the 2021 edition was held as a virtual conference, the 3rd Expert Finder Systems International Forum will be held again as an in-person event this year. The event will take place Apr 5-6, 2023 in Coral Gables, Miami, Florida under the banner "Connecting the dots" and its full programme has already been made available. Early bird registration is open until Jan 30, 2023.
The programme comprises an exciting mix of recent developments around research information management systems in the US. As shown in the 2021 OCLC report "Research Information Management in the United States", the RIM landscape in the US is somewhat different and also more diverse than in Europe, with Faculty Activity Reporting Systems or FARs and Expert Finder Systems like VIVO playing a very relevant role.
