Library and Information Services in Astronomy (LISA) is a series of scientific meetings for librarians and scientists that aims to provide a platform to discuss the state of the art of information maintenance, retrieval, delivery, and preservation and to learn from invited experts the directions in which our profession is moving.

LISA conferences cover such diverse topics as organization and management of books, journals, and specialized materials; electronic publishing (note that astronomy is a leader in the field); bibliographic and full text databases of astronomical literature; reports on collaborative projects.

The June 2017 LISA meeting will be hosted by the Observatoire astronomique de Strasbourg, in Strasbourg, France. The meeting will take place at the Collège Doctoral Européen on the campus of the University of Strasbourg near the observatory.
