The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has invited Access Innovations to hold the second Data Harmony Users Group East (DHUGE) meeting at their Washington, DC headquarters. AAAS hopes to highlight the synergy between the two organizations and showcase how this collaboration is furthering the mission of AAAS. DHUGE 2018 will take place on November 9, 2018.

DHUGE is an extension of Access Innovations’ two-day DHUG conference that takes place every February in Albuquerque, NM.

The agenda will feature a panel discussion with some of the leading voices in the information industry, along with Data Harmony users presenting case studies on how they use Access Innovations’ award winning Data Harmony software. The conference will also feature breakout sessions in which attendees can discuss the problems they currently face with semantics, indexing, and information discovery.

“The DHUGE 2018 agenda is packed with excellent discussions on taxonomies and semantic solutions,” explained Heather Kotula, VP of Marketing and Communications for Access Innovations. “I always look forward to finding out how our customers use Data Harmony and what challenges they are facing. This gives us a great opportunity to help them overcome those challenges by working with us to find new ways to meet their needs.”

“We are excited to host DHUGE 2018,” remarked Michael Savelli, Chief Operating Officer at AAAS. “We invited Access Innovations to hold the meeting at our building in Washington, DC in order to highlight our work together and how it is furthering the mission of AAAS.”
