The study of science at the individual micro-level frequently requires the disambiguation of author names. The creation of author's publication oeuvres involves matching the list of unique author names to names used in publication databases. Despite recent progress in the development of unique author identifiers, e.g., ORCID, VIVO, or DAI, author disambiguation remains a key problem when it comes to large-scale bibliometric analysis using data from multiple databases.

Over the last ten years the policies for the future internet, be it around technical standards, competition dynamics, innovation, the role of intermediaries or the protection of public interest goals have been intensely discussed. There remains a manifest difference between the dynamics of technological change and the dynamics of proactive regulation.
The involvement of lawyers and economists as well as computer scientists (see Nebula team members: http://nebula.cis.upenn.edu/members.html) should be of great interest for the European Internet Science community. EINS member Jonathan Cave recently attended a NEBULA workshop at UPenn."In the summer of 2010, NSF funded four projects as a part of this program.
