What is the meeting about?

The meeting will explore challenges and opportunities presented by the digital revolution. For example:

• How can we address the digital/social challenges and capitalize on the opportunities ahead and stay relevant?

• What are examples of new and innovative research approaches that address the digital forces: connectivity, convergence, social media?

• How do these forces affect the way agencies are structured and operate as well as the skill sets they should seek in new applicants?

• How can we maintain relevance in light of the increasing adoption of data crunching and DIY research?


Even if you’ve been here before, there’s always a new world to discover. Cyprus lies at the crossroads of three continents, where East meets West and a new experience awaits for you under the sun every day. Where Championship Golf courses, inviting beaches, and breathtaking mountain trails lie around luxurious hotels. The winter is mild and mostly sunny. Enjoy the island’s beauty once more.

An island whose rich dramatic history can be traced back over nine thousand years; an island so coveted over the centuries that it has been invaded and claimed by a fascinating mixture of civilizations from near and far all of which have left their culture and shaped its character.

An island whose archaeology stems from the Neolithic Age, the Ancient Greeks and the Roman period; where churches and monasteries still stand from Byzantine times; castles and palaces from the days of Crusaders and Frankish Lusignans and splendid city walls from Venetian days.

Our hotel is the 5 star Amathus Beach near Limassol and adjacent to the famous Amathus ruins.

There will be a gala dinner for members and their guests after the formal sessions on Friday 24th February

What is included
