RDA, the Research Data Alliance, in collaboration with the universities of Turin, Milan, Bologna , Trento and Parma and supported by CNR, AISA and OpenAIRE organizes a two-day workshop about sharing, reuse, and reproducibility of research data on some selected scientific fields - and related research infrastructures - of strategic relevance in Europe.
PIDapalooza is a two-day festival for scholarly research persistent identifiers (PIDs) organized by California Digital Library, Crossref, DataCite, and ORCiD.
This community gathering for everyone who’s working with PIDs, including digital tech experts, publishers, researchers, tool builders, research organizations, and scholarly infrastructure providers.
The landscape of academic careers is changing rapidly, and the traditional academic job market is more competitive than ever before. The production of PhDs far exceeds the number of available permanent positions. Even those limited positions are under attack, as universities rely more and more on adjunct faculty, and at many universities, the protections of tenure are being rolled back. A shift towards running universities “like a business” means increasing pressure to bring in outside funding and a reduced commitment to fields where funding is less abundant.
On the 2 November 2016, Jisc and the Research Data Alliance (RDA) will host their first joint workshop in Birmingham, UK. At the event, topics include how to engage with the RDA, practical uses of RDA outputs, and discussions with groups working on Trust and Certification, Metadata Standards, Data Citation and Publishing Data.
iPRES is the longest standing digital preservation conference in the world. This important event brings together key theorists, researchers and practitioners to explore the latest trends, innovations, policies and practices in digital preservation. iPRES2016 will attract participants from leading institutions, projects and initiatives from all around the world.
According to the OECD and other international organisations data has become the key infrastructure for 21st century knowledge society and economics. Data is a capital good that can and needs to be used across countries and societies for a theoretically unlimited range of purposes and therefore broad access to it will be crucial.
Europe's leading e-infrastructures invite all researchers, developers and service providers for three days of brainstorming and discussions at the Digital Infrastructures for Research event (28-30 September 2016).
Inside the th 20th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries, this Workshop aims at becoming a forum to discuss ideas and advancements towards the revision of current scientific communication practices in order to support Open Science, introduce novel evaluation schemes, and enable reproducibility. As such it candidates as an event fostering collaboration between
- Library and information scientists working on the identification of new publication paradigms;
- ICT scientists involved in the definition of new technical solutions to these issues;
- Scientists/researchers who actually conduct the research and demand tools and practices for Open Science.
A workshop on The Rescue of Data At Risk will be held in Boulder, Colorado, on 8–9 September 2016, in association with International Data Week that is taking place the following week in nearby Denver.
