DARIAH Annual Event 2018

The programme for DARIAH’s Annual Event 2018 is online now. The event will take place in Paris on May 23rd and 24th, 2018. The Annual Event is open beyond the DARIAH community. It features a series of engaging keynote lectures and interactive sessions, which bring together researchers, technologists, data scientists and cultural heritage professionals. Additionally it enables colleagues to work together face-to-face on their DARIAH activities, e.g. in Working Group meetings.

The theme for this year’s event is Open Science. We would like to discuss with the DARIAH community how we deal with issues of Open Science in the research infrastructure we build, and how the humanities can promote new methodologies for open collaboration. There will be two keynotes and several workshops on the topic.

More information on the programme will be available soon. Registration for the event will be open within the next weeks.

FEIS – International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Science – Call for papers

Differences in entry requirements and learning outcomes in the field of Information Science (IS) cause large mobility barriers and lack of uniformity among Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) that offer Master degrees in IS. The Erasmus+ EINFOSE project seeks to find out the appropriate ways and modes of the harmonization and recognition of the entry requirements which would enable students from other fields to master learning outcomes at the graduate level of IS programs. The International Symposium on the Future of Education in Information Sciences (FEIS 2018) is intended to stimulate discussion and reach commonly accepted recommendations that could serve not only to partner HEIs but also as a model for other academic disciplines.

Data Management Engagement Award

A competition has been launched by the University of Cambridge, SPARC Europe and JISC to elicit new and imaginative ideas for engaging researchers in the practices of good research data management (RDM).

This builds on the Engaging Good Data Management Conference that took place at the University of Cambridge in November last year. One submision will be chosen as the winner and up to £1750 will be awarded to bring it to life.

The deadline for applications is 12pm, Feb. 28, 2018 GMT.

University of Cambridge’s Dr. Marta Teperek will be presenting details of the award during the Research Data Alliance’s (RDA) Data Innovation Forum to be held in Brussels, Belgium on January 30, 2018.

As part of the goal is to encourage a global movement to engage more researchers in good data management, the winning idea should be applicable and transferable to a broad range of countries, institutions, settings and disciplines.

It should also have the potential for wide impact – to engage as many people as possible in better, and preferably, open data management practices. (Think: ideas that have the potential to connect with large groups.) And the idea shouldn’t require a large budget to execute, so that it is easily reusable by others.

Workshop “Virtual Research Environments: What Services Should They Offer And What E-Infrastructures Should Provide To Support Them”

27-28 February 2018, CNR  Pisa.  

There is a growing interest in Virtual Research Environments (VREs, also named Science Gateways or Virtual Laboratories) as instruments to support research communities in cooperating and performing their scientific activities. Several VREs are now operational and a number of VRE frameworks have been developed to facilitate their creation. All these components rely on services provided by underlying e-Infrastructures. This workshop intends to bring together experts from complementary domains to discuss what cores services VREs should provide to facilitate collaborative research activities and to identify the services that e-Infrastructures should make available to support them. The outcome will be beneficial for all the research infrastructures and other initiatives that at the moment are tackling the issue of developing VREs. In particular, it will be used as an input to the design of the  Architecture of the European Science Cloud ( A report of the workshop will be produced.

The workshop is primarily intended to be a by invitation only working meeting attended by participants from different areas: i) representatives of domain-specific Infrastructures, (ii) computer scientists and IT researchers involved in designing and development VRE related facilities (e.g. VRE/science gateways enabling frameworks, Computer-Supported Collaborative Work, Scientific Workflow Management Systems), and (iii) representatives of RDA Working groups on topics related to the VRE design and development.

Agenda to be announced soon.
