PIM 2009 (Nov. 7-8, 2009 in Vancouver, BC)


Personal information management or PIM is attracting increasing attention as an area of study. In the ideal world, we have the right information at the right time, in the right place, in the right form, and of sufficient completeness and quality to perform the current activity. Tools and technologies help so that we spend less time with burdensome and error prone actions of information management (such as filing). We then have more time to make creative, intelligent use of the information at hand in order to get things done.


This site is a follow-on to PIM05, the NSF-sponsored workshop on Personal Information Management (PIM) held in Seattle, WA on January 27-29, 2005. (See here).
