First proposal about WWW from 1989

By Bénédicte Huchet. Published on 26 March 2014 in:
Information, March 2014, , , ,

Exactly 25 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee submitted a proposal addressing the complex issue of information management at CERN. The project was based on linked information using hypertexts. Revolutionising the idea of archiving documents, it laid the foundation of the Internet.
In 1984, Tim Berners-Lee took up a fellowship at CERN, 8 years after his graduation from the Queen’s College at Oxford University, United Kingdom. His first job there was related with the distributed real-time systems for scientific data acquisition and system control. In this context T. Berners-Lee submitted the proposal that would provide…

Season’s greetings

By David Lee. Published on 20 December 2013 in:
December 2013, Information, , , ,

I would like to take this opportunity of wishing all the readers of e-EPS a very happy holiday season, and extend my best wishes for the New Year 2014. I would also like to reflect a bit on 2013, and how the European Physical Society [EPS] has evolved over the past year.

It is no secret to scientists that the European Commission and the European Parliament have and will continue to shape science policy in Europe. This sets scientists a bit apart from other citizens in Europe, who see Europe as another bureaucratic layer. The EPS has fully embraced the challenge of constructively interacting with European policy makers, organising many point to point meetings with senior EC officials, and providing input into European science policy.

By Gina Gunaratnam, Jo Lister. Published on 29 April 2013 in:
April 2013, Information, ,

2012 saw three improvements on Individual Membership. The total number of new directly registered Individual Members increased by well over 500 in 2012, showing an upward trend since a dip in 2010.

Even better news as seen on the table and figure is that 24% of the new Individual Members are female, up from under 15% in 2009. We are therefore showing significant progress on both gender balance and overall numbers.

The cherry on the cake is that a carefully targeted conference, the International Conference on…
