Exploration by early explorers and studies of the aquifers initially sparked our understanding of the surface and shallow formations. Then, the discoveries in 1957 of important reserves of Uranium and soon after in 1964 of the enormous Lower Cretaceous vertebrate site of Gadoufaoua, stressed the need to undertake serious stratigraphical investigations in the western Iullemmeden Basin. The geologist Hughes Faure then published his important, and still relevant, 1966 thesis on the surface geology of Eastern Niger. From that time onward, the Oil &amp; Gas companies started paying attention to the most prospective areas in the Eastern Niger Basin. During the last decade, these same hydrocarbon companies finally allowed some of their geologists to share their knowledge of the sub-surface in relevant publications. It is from all these studies that the present Lexicon draws its content. When possible, it provides the historical background of all described geological units in Niger and summarizes the lithological and paleontological knowledge of each unit in an easy-to-search format.</p> 2022-06-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The publisher owns the copyright over the full book; while authors retain copyright over their individual chapters.

We initially planned this event to be held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, hosted by the Federal Center for Technological Education of Minas Gerais (CEFET-MG). Still, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we celebrated it virtually from 20-21 October 2021. In its fourth edition, we aimed at bringing together, through interdisciplinary approaches, researchers and other professionals oriented to data access and use coming from computer science, information science, engineering, mathematics, and related fields. The event also focused on promoting the approximation of research groups that work in the data and information field. We tried to discuss several dispersed initiatives, but of great potential for integration among themselves.</p> 2022-06-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The publisher owns the copyright over the full book; while authors retain copyright over their individual chapters.

The authors address diverse topics such as digital humanities, library information services, information asymmetry, digital preservation, D-Space, editorial processes, scientific communication, social media metrics (altmetrics), scientometrics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence; but the common thread is the technological and communicative process around information in current contexts. Among the contributions are the review and updating of the state of the art of the aforementioned topics in society.</span></p> 2022-03-21T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The publisher owns the copyright over the full book; while authors retain copyright over their individual chapters.
