Building a New Network for Data Science: Call for Participation

The EUDOn COST Action Proposal wants to help data scientist and researchers working with digital data in overcoming the biggest roadblocks on the path towards a seamlessly functioning data domain. (More information about COST actions can be found here.

It will do so by focusing on the concept of Digital Objects as discussed and developed in the Research Data Alliance and C2CAMP initiatives, and as can be implemented as a local solution in cloud systems.

The proposal aims to organise networks of existing experts from pan-European research infrastructures, e-Infrastructures, the RDA Europe community and other related initiatives. The three major roadblocks requiring urgent changes are: inadequate data sharing/trading culture, inefficient data management/ processing (including interoperability) and a lack of automation in data handling.

The core of the EUDOn application will be to bring data scientists together which currently suffer from fragmentation and lack of interoperability. Data Scientists include a certain spectrum ranging from those colleagues that are focusing on data analytics to those that focusing on federating data with novel methods. We also need to include early stage researchers.

If you are interested to participate in this EUDOn network of “data scientists”, please send the following information to Emiliano Degl’Innocenti by Monday April 16:

  • Your Name
  • Your email addresses
  • Your affiliation and country
  • Your gender and date of PhD dissertation

Researchers from all European countries are welcome, with a special attention for inclusiveness target countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia, Turkey, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Open day on Open Science

Wednesday 21 March 2018, 12.00 – 17.00. 

On March 21 2018 DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services) organizes, together with the Young Academy of the KNAW and Promovendi Netwerk Nederland an “Open day on Open Science” about permanent access to digital research resources. The day will be focussed around open data, FAIR data, research data management, data archiving and data re-use.

In addition to a debate with the Young Academy, the Promovendi Network Nederland and the other attendees about the possible obstacles in sharing and re-using (open) data and the solutions to this, a number of success stories – in 10-minute pitches – will be given in the field of open data. There is also an information market about the services of DANS, including EASY, DataverseNL and NARCIS. The afternoon starts with a lunch and ends with a drink.

The day is specially organized for (young) scientists and data librarians.

 Location The Hague, the Netherlands

5-6 marzo 2018

Sede: Aula didattica BAICR – via dei Rutoli, 12 – Roma.

Orario: 10.00 – 13.00 / 14.00 – 17.00.

Docente: Silvia Ortolani, consulente e formatore nel settore della comunicazione (Università degli Studi di Roma la Sapienza – DigiLab Centro Interdipartimentale di Ricerca e Servizi, Collaboratrice Nucleo controllo progetti).

Contenuti: Nella società della comunicazione, i luoghi della cultura come Biblioteche, Musei, Archivi, Scuole e Università si confrontano con utenti sempre più connessi alla rete internet. Gli operatori culturali sono quindi chiamati a comunicare e promuovere i servizi e le attività in modi nuovi e diversificati.
Dopo la prima parte del corso Comunicare nei luoghi della cultura, proponiamo una seconda parte di approfondimento che riguarda la comunicazione tramite gli strumenti offerti dalla rete internet, sia dal punto di vista dei linguaggi, sia dal punto di vista della programmazione e progettazione dei contenuti in termini di calendario delle attività di comunicazione. Come, dove, quando, cosa e perché comunichiamo un contenuto saranno le domande cui daremo una risposta durante i due giorni del percorso formativo.

Il corso si propone inoltre di fornire strumenti e competenze in merito ai diversi linguaggi e alle possibilità di uso e riuso di materiali presenti in rete, più adatti alle esigenze della propria istituzione.

In considerazione degli obiettivi previsti, la metodologia sarà laboratoriale, alternata a momenti informativi e teorici. Durante il secondo giorno i partecipanti lavoreranno direttamente in rete, individualmente e in gruppo guidati dalla docente, alla realizzazione di un loro progetto di comunicazione.

Destinatari: Il corso è destinato a bibliotecari, archivisti e operatori culturali in genere.

Primo giorno

  • Presentazione del corso e della metodologia di lavoro

  • Quali canali e per quali utenti: differenze tra i diversi canali social: casi di successo e di insuccesso

  • Comunicare in maniera efficace uno stesso contenuto tramite diversi canali: Email, Blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube: uso del linguaggio verbale e visuale

  • Utilizzo e ri-utilizzo dei materiali presenti in rete per la comunicazione e la promozione

Secondo giorno

  • Analisi dei bisogni e individuazione del progetto da sviluppare

  • Progettazione, Piano di comunicazione

  • Realizzazione del progetto di comunicazione/promozione con la guida della trainer e il confronto con il gruppo di lavoro

  • Presentazione in plenaria del lavoro svolto

  • Conclusione con eventuali approfondimenti tecnici e teorici specifici.

Costo: € 180,00 + IVA – sconto del 10% per studenti e possessori Bibliocard. Per i partecipanti alla prima parte del corso sarà applicato uno sconto del 20%.

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.
