ConTech 2018 opens in just two weeks' time
- 16 Nov 2018

ConTech 2018 tickets are going out this week. The inaugural ConTech opens in just two weeks' time.

Every organisation creating and managing content collects mountains of data on its users and content - some valuable, some not. Using techniques like artificial intelligence, machine learning and visualisation, data science helps distinguish between the two - telling the story behind the data, predicting what will happen in the future, and zooming in on user needs in ways that would have been impossible before.

At ConTech 2018 attendees will learn how this new generation of technology is impacting the world of content.

This is an event for information and content people (publishers, content managers and information managers) who want to understand how moving towards data-driven content will impact their businesses, operations and the content they create and deliver. ConTech 2018 is the only conference where the worlds of content and data science meet.

Here are just a few of the things to see and do at the event: Data Driven product sessions from Editage, Ontotext, Morressier and DeepSEARCH9; Pharma 4.0: Embracing Opportunities for Information in a Digital Healthcare World - a special markets session- Helen Malone, Director of the Information Hub at GlaxoSmithKline and President of the Pharma-Documentation-Ring; Keynote "My Artificial Muse"; How can AI collaborate with humans in creative and artistic processes? - Albert Barqué-Duran, PhD, Honorary Research Fellow&Artist, City, University of London, Lacuna Lab BerlinBerlin - London - Barcelona; and see displays and hear from Oiga Technologies, InfoDesk, Third Iron, DeepSEARCH9, JoVE, Research Information and Info International.

ConTech 2018 hosts the next DataBeers London event at the end of day 1. If you have a passion to better understand data science then this is a must attend event! https://contechlive.com/databeers/

ConTech 2018 takes place at Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London from November 29-30.

ConTech 2018 offering two student bursaries to rising stars of the information world
- 08 Nov 2018

Applications are coming in from students across the world who want to attend ConTech 2018 later this month in London, UK, as part of the bursary programme. The world of intelligent content is revolutionising the creation, dissemination and consumption of information. ConTech has a mission to become the go to event for meeting, sharing and learning about the implications and opportunities that face the worlds of information and premium content, this year and for many more to come.

A critical part of this revolution will be the roles played by new entrants into the information profession, hence the focus on attracting undergraduate or post graduate students to participate. Interested parties may visit to find out more or to see how to apply.

To learn more about other parts of the ConTech mission have a look at a discussion between ConTech 2018 chairs Sam Herbert, of 67Bricks, and Vincent Cassidy, of the IET. They explore some of the key issues for publishers looking to become more data-driven in the run up to this year's event.

Meet content and technology pioneers at ConTech 2018
- 02 Nov 2018

ConTech 2018 features pioneering organisations who have embraced new intelligent technologies to change the creation, management and use of scholarly and professional information content. Third Iron, LLC, a leading information technology company developing innovative services that benefit libraries and their users, and InfoDesk, which provides connectors to a diverse content network of global information providers, are the two companies that will be in attendance over the two days.

Third Iron, LLC, is a leading information technology company developing innovative services that benefit libraries and their users and the producer of the world's most popular journal engagement system, BrowZine. Founded in 2011, Third Iron products are used by researchers from over 700 corporations, hospitals and universities in more than 24 countries around the world.

The growth in output of scholarly literature, especially in journal articles, is increasing researchers demand for technologies that improve work flow efficiency. This in turn is requiring that libraries, always central to the research process, rethink the technology ecosystem that supports the critical content resources they maintain. These issues are what ConTech 2018 is all about. New intelligent technologies can offer exciting new solutions, tools and techniques to deal with these issues.

Third Iron software development is animated by these concerns and services such as, BrowZine and LibKey Discovery, are designed to meet them. BrowZine simplifies how researchers can find, read and follow journals, allowing them to easily keep up to date with new trends reported in the literature. LibKey Discovery extends key aspects of Third Iron technology into discovery services, features such as one-click access to millions of subscribed and Open Access journals from thousands of journals.

Providing connectors to a diverse content network of global information providers, InfoDesk's proprietary 'Smarter Data' technology acquires, integrates, normalises and semantically enriches large volumes of data in real-time from internal and external sources. InfoDesk collaborates with clients to deliver timely, strategic insight that increases competitive awareness, mitigates risk and provides key data for better decisions.

InfoDesk is attending ConTech 2018 to share their Smarter Data process with organisations. This process uses proprietary technology and provides organisations with an opportunity to combat information overload and transform data into actionable insights.

ConTech 2018 is an event for content people - from publishers to content and information managers who want to understand how data-driven content will impact their organisations, operations and the content they create, deliver and consume. The final version of the programme can be viewed here.

Confirmed delegates include content and information professionals from around the world. Content heads, strategists and managers. CTOs, systems architects, data scientists and platform technologists, publishers, senior librarians, information and engagement specialists, founders, business leaders, communications and marketing experts are all represented.

ConTech 2018 takes place at Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London from November 29-30.

ConTech 2018 insights
- 29 Oct 2018

A new generation of intelligent technology is transforming publishing and the world of digital content. Driven by data science and artificial intelligence, new tools are making publishers and content providers smarter, faster and more attuned to the needs of their users. Those attending ConTech 2018 will get to grips with these technologies that are already revolutionising the world of content creation and consumption.

SciencePOD's CEO Sabine Louet asks what do AI and NLP have to do with content creation automation?

AI, NLP and blockchains are buzzwords that seem to pervade every conference programme related to content. The reality is that the science publishing industry has been rather slow in adopting these technologies in their existing editorial processes. In this presentation Sabine will share her journey on the path to automating the complex editorial processes that are required to create quality content, such as the creation of news stories explaining the meaning of research papers in simple language, using AI and NPL.

Deep SEARCH 9's managing partner Klaus Kater will introduce a set of comprehensive tools used by data scientists from some of the world's leading corporations that enable them to work collaboratively on projects and automate business intelligence and information analysis. To push automatic content classification further DS9 has merged semantic technologies used for concept recognition and machine learning used for content classification into a powerful Hybrid Semantic AI.

ConTech 2018 is an event for content people - from publishers to content and information managers who want to understand how data-driven content will impact their organisations, operations and the content they create, deliver and consume. The final version of the programme can be viewed here.
