    Together with image analyst Jana Christopher of IMAGE INTEGRITY,  the HEADT Centre team will present a pre-conference workshop on „Image Integrity in Scientific Publication“. The workshop will provide information on how image manipulation has become a pressing concern in scientific publication and will show some of the challenges when it comes to the analysis of more sophisticated manipulations. We are going to present a selection of image analysis tools and discuss both their capacities and their limitations when screening images for potential manipulation.

    In an additional oral presentation the HEADT Centre team will present its current work on the Image Integrity Database. The database offers a research environment for detecting and evaluating manipulations in scholarly images and collects data from retractions in a wide variety of scholarly fields. The database thus offers a unique source for the development of software to detect image manipulation and falsification. In the session we are going to present that status quo of the research environment and outline a vision for future work with the database, which involves collaborations with publishers and research groups around the globe.

    Michael Seadle will speak on a panel at the ALISE Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.

    About the conference:

    "The 2019 ALISE Annual Conference theme is Exploring Learning in a Global Information Context. We hope to reiterate that education for library and information science (LIS) is truly a global enterprise.

    All around the world, future information professionals are exploring a diverse range of topics in the LIS field. Our focus on teaching and learning must account for this global context. How are our colleagues around the world wrestling with the challenges that we face in LIS? Are there lessons we can learn from each other?

    The 2019 ALISE conference is intended to encourage engagement across the globe from those in library and information science, as well as those in a wide variety of cognate fields who wish to share their vision for education, for teaching and learning, for pedagogy, and for research through an international lens.

    The 2019 ALISE conference will be held in Knoxville, Tennessee, a gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The city is known for the research-intensive University of Tennessee and boasts a thriving arts community and downtown district.

    Check back frequently for more information and updates regarding the 2019 ALISE conference. We hope to see you in Knoxville for a dynamic and engaging meeting." (ALISE 2019 Conference)
