Dear all,
Apologies for cross-posting.
Please find below the CfP for the 3rd Workshop on Research Objects Metadata
and Management for Linked Open Science DaMaLOS 2022
co-located with ISWC
Drop me a line if you have any questions.
Kind regards,
on behalf of DaMaLOS Organizing Committee.
*DaMaLOS 2022: 3rd Workshop on Research Objects Metadata and Management for
Linked Open ScienceOnline, October 23 or 24,
<***@***.***> DaMaLOS-2022 workshop (co-located with ISWC)
will explore what is required for Research Data Management to effectively
instantiate Linked Open Science, i.e., Open Science + Linked Open Data
(LOD) principles, including effective support for LOD, automation by, e.g.,
machine/deep learning approaches, and innovations to include supporting
data elements such as the software used to produce/consume it together with
tutorials showcasing their usage. Furthermore, data management should be
complemented by other research objects management plans, e.g. software and
workflows, in order to get an integrated layer supporting all the edges of
Linked Open Science. In this workshop we will keep a focus on data
management but we will also have opportunities to discuss how other
research objects play an important role.More information on our website:

GuidelinesAll papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to
another journal or conference/workshop. Proceedings of the workshop will be
publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license. We welcome contributions around
the topics listed below. This year there are two ways to submit
contributions (i) workshop submissions and (ii) journal submissions, more
information right after the list of topics.Topics - Research management-
Importance of Research Data Management (RDM) for LOD- Importance of other
Research Objects Management (ROM) and their alignment with RDM and LOD-
Special features/metadata required in RDM/ROM plans for LOD- RDM/ROM plans
elements/data that can be automated, particularly using/consuming LOD-
Links between RDM and ROM plans and how those could be automated-
Extensions to current RDM plans to better support Linked Open Science,
e.g., emergence of ROM- FAIRness and FAIRification- Integration/alignment
between FAIR and RDM/ROM plans and tools- FAIRification processes, either
by design or post-research-object creation- FAIR tooling- Open Science and
Scientometrics- Benefits of Linked Open Science, i.e., Open Science +
Linked Open Data principles, over Open Science- How RDM/ROM plans and LOD
can be used to improve collection and storage of (usually volatile) data
produced at, e.g., conferences- Integration of software, data, and any
other research outcome into science-related metrics- Virtual Research
Environments- Managing FAIR digital objects in federated, open data
spaces/infrastructures/ecosystems- Gluing together metadata + publications
+ data + software, (e.g., via management plans, FAIRification efforts or
open aggregating spaces/ecosystems)Workshop submissionsWe welcome full
research (introducing novel research contributions, max 10 pages), short
research (presenting early results or work in progress, max 6
pages), position (introducing an idea and discussion around it, max 6
pages) and research objects (description of datasets, software, workflows,
max 10 pages). Submissions will be evaluated by at least two members of the
Programme Committee. Accepted papers will be part of the proceedings of the
workshop and will be publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license at PUBLISSO
FRL indexed by LIVIVO
and DBLP .
Accepted workshop papers will be later invited to submit an extended and
improved version to the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS)
. All papers should be formatted
according to LNCS templates

Types of submissions - Full research papers (up to 10 pages): Presenting
novel scientific research- Research objects (up to 10 pages): Describing
datasets, software, workflows, training materials- Short research papers
(up to 6 pages): Presenting research results at early stages or ongoing
work- Position papers (up to 6 pages): Introducing positions, ideas,
opinions and discussions around them- Demos (up to 6 pages): Presenting
tools (software, workflows and so) from a practical perspectiveSubmissions
will be evaluated by members of the Program Committee
. Submission system. All
workshop submissions should be done via EasyChair DaMaLOS-2022 workshop
Please submit your
workshop contributions no later than 15.Sep.2022Journal submissions to the
permanent collection at JBioMedSemThe Journal of Biomedical Semantics
hosts a DaMaLOS permanent collection
. This year we will
welcome direct submissions to the journal collection for those researchers
with a topic mature enough for peer-reviewed journal publication. If you
opt for this option, please visit the submission guideline
provided by
the journal. Make sure you select the DaMaLOS collection when submitting.
We aim at offering up to 20% discount on the journal submission fee for the
first 5 submissions.JBioMedSem offers a preprint server for submission to
the journal while the peer-reviewed process is ongoing.For those submitting
to the journal track, we would also expect them to join, participate and
present their works at the workshop. Please submit your journal
contributions no later than 31.Aug.2022 (journal revisions can take longer
so we are allowing some more time for it)CommitteesOrganizing committee -
