2018 CoR & CIMA Joint Summer Meeting

July 29 - July 31, 2018
Strand Union Building at Montana State University
751 W. Grant Street, Bozeman, Montana 59715

We are headed to Bozeman! The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) Council on Research (CoR) will meet jointly with APLU’s Commission on Information, Measurement, and Analysis (CIMA) from July 29 – July 31, 2018 at the Strand Union Building on the campus of Montana State University. The pre-meeting “New and Future VPR Workshop” for new and aspiring Senior Research Officers (SROs) will take place on Sunday, July 29, followed by an evening reception on Sunday and two full days of programming on Monday, July 30 (7:30am MT start) and Tuesday, July 31 (5:00pm MT end). We expect most attendees will arrive on Saturday, July 28 or Sunday, July 29 and will depart on Wednesday, August 1. We once again encourage each participating SRO to invite one Associate Vice Chancellor/President for Research, or future SRO, both to attend the meeting and participate in the pre-meeting workshop, designed to build skills and address topics specific to this audience.

CoR sessions offer the chance to learn from and share ideas with invited speakers and colleagues from across North America. 2018 session topics will include: the National Science Board’s 2018 Science & Engineering indicators; the Air Force’s Science & Technology 2030 initiative; research infrastructure and core facilities; lab safety; enterprise systems; modernizing research (including Highly Integrative Basic And Responsive (HIBAR) and Grand Challenge research); and a legislative update. In addition, two joint CoR and CIMA sessions will be held on using data for research benchmarking and measuring faculty contribution; and addressing data collaboration among research, academic, and administrative leaders. A joint evening reception will take place on Monday, July 30 at the Museum of the Rockies.

Registration information is available here, and hotel reservation information is here. Shuttle service will be provided between The Lark, the Best Western GranTree Inn, the Strand Union Building, and the Museum of the Rockies. See you this summer!
