The conference will be hosted by Simon Fraser University and University of British Columbia and will be held in Vancouver, Canada, 31 May - 3 June 2011.

The theme of the conference is Data Science Professionals: a Global Community of Sharing. Social science benefits from professional practices that enable sharing of data, information, and knowledge with a global community. This theme is intended to stimulate discussions about ways in which sharing data, information, and knowledge can contribute to research and to professional practices that enable scientific progress. Submissions are encouraged that offer improvements for creating, documenting, submitting, describing, disseminating, and preserving scientific research data.

The IASSIST Program Committee welcomes proposals on the theme outlined above, and encourage conference participants to propose papers and sessions that would be of interest to themselves and other attendees.
