Hello everyone! Here’s a place to introduce yourself and let everyone know who you are and what you do…
I’m Dan, Chief Scientist at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), Research Associate Professor in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the School of Information Sciences (iSchool) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Guest Faculty at Argonne National Laboratory.
I generally work with and on research software. I’m a founding editor and current Associate Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Open Source Software, a co-founder and steering committee member of the Research Software Alliance (ReSA), and a co-founder and steering committee member of the US Research Software Engineer Association (US-RSE). I’m also a co-chair of the FORCE11 Software Citation Implementation working group and the FORCE11/ReSA/RDA FAIR for Research Software (FAIR4RS) working group.
At NISO Plus, I’ll be talking about software citation in journals in the Solving problems with standards session at 16:00 UTC (11:00 am EST) on Tuesday, February 23. Other events related our software citation work will be in Linked data and the future of information sharing at 17:00 UTC (noon EST) on Monday, February 22 and Research data: describing, sharing, protecting, saving at 01:00 UTC on Tuesday, February 23 (8:00 pm EST on Monday, February 22).
Thanks Dan - looking forward to it!
Hi everyone, I’m Todd, the Executive Director of NISO. I’m so excited you’re all here. This is my 14th year running NISO and it gets more and more exciting each year. Thank you all for joining in the community conversations here and during the conference this week. It will be fun and hopefully impactful.
I should probably introduce myself as well! I’m Jason Griffey, Director of Strategic Initiatives at NISO, and Director of the NISO Plus Conference. I’m excited to see what everyone thinks of what we’ve put together for you, and if anyone has questions, please reach out to me…during, or after the conference.
I am Dr. CK Ramaiah working as Dean, School of Media and Communication, University Librarian i/c & Director (i/c), Directorate of Distance Education & Professor, Dept. of Library and Information Science, Pondicherry University, India.
As a former president of NFAIS (2018) and a leader on the team that merged NISO with NFAIS, I’m super excited to be back here to see so many familiar faces and to make new friends and how much this new organization has grown!! I’m the former sr. director of product management for Scopus (Elsevier). So, what do I do now? “I provide applied research and product management strategy services to clients in scholarly communications (scholcomm) and organizations in media & the arts, investigative journalism and product design.”
I left full-time scholcomm in late 2018 to pursue projects in arts and media that are centered around creative use of OSINT (open source intellegence) research. My work ranges from competitive and market intelligence, on one side of the spectrum, and privacy and OPSEC on the other. Clients range from fractional product management leadership at independent media groups such as McProjectz & pleasekillme.com (yes, that is safe for work), JaimeLevy dot com, Supervert dot com and geopolitical forecasting groups. On the #scholcomm and #scicomm side, recent projects have included work with AIPP and AAPT (I like physicists…).
When I have time, I volunteer for #osintforgood organizations hunting for missing persons, or more recently, working to identify bad guys on behalf of LEO (law enforcement) and IC (intelligence community) organizations. Longtime member of the EFF (so glad to see Cory here today!) and related organizations that are concerned with protecting privacy and security of the global citizenry.
I am Anna Maria Tammaro from Italy. I have been teaching at the University of Parma for about twenty years and coordinated for Parma the international Master DILL. Still involved in research projects and occasionally teaching, but my job is now Editor in chief of Digital Library Perspectives

Hi all NISOPlussers! I hope I am posting this in the right place… I am a researcher and assistant professor in the School of Public Health at University of Alabama at Birmingham. I do a lot of systematic reviews and meta-research on nutrition and obesity topics. I am trying to get funding for work to demonstrate the utility of structured metadata for increase search precision of the scientific record.
