The ICSTI 2017 Annual Members’ Meeting & Workshops will be held on Tuesday, 4th April 2017 at the Barcelo Sants Hotel, Barcelona, Spain..
ICSTI and the Research Data Alliance (RDA) recently signed an MoU and we are pleased to announce that this ICSTI event is an Associated Event with the RDA 9th Plenary meeting taking place at the same venue on 5-7 April 2017.
Important Notice : Registrations for the ICSTI AMM & Workshops meeting and the RDA 9th Plenary meeting are handled separately. To register for the RDA conference, you must use the RDA registration form
As is now customary, this ICSTI Annual Members’ Meeting & Workshops will comprise three parts : the Members-only session, the ITOC Workshop, and the TACC Workshop. The Members’ session is reserved for ICSTI members but both workshops are open to ICSTI and non-ICSTI delegates.
ITOC and TACC WORKSHOPS
The programs of the ITOC and TACC workshops are developed by the Information Trends and Opportunities Committee and the Technical Activities Coordinating Committee of ICSTI.
Workshop and Speaker information will be completed in the coming weeks.
’Enhanced Publications : Approaches to Maximising the Value of Digital Assets to Enhance Scientific Publications’
Current research is presented by a variety of digital assets. Besides text research also includes visualized research data, video, graphics, models and even software code. These digital assets are an important element of contemporary scientific outputs and thus part of our cultural heritage. Unfortunately, no sustainable standard has become established for handling these important assets. Only a negligible proportion of those digital assets are accessible at present, whilst scientific texts are, in principle, sufficiently well-documented and available. This can lead to serious problems when it comes to verify, reproduce and reuse the research results. In this workshop we’d like to focus on approaches and strategies for integration, re-use and re-purposing of data and digital content within scientific publications.
Confirmed Speakers - Alphabetical order
Maarten Cleeren, Director of Product Management, Enriched Content, Elsevier - Elsevier : Elsevier’s Article of the Future
Neil Chue Hong, Director, Software Sustainability Institute - Software - a different type of research object ?
Marco Stella, Associate Director, JoVE - Our Shared Role in Solving Science’s Reproducibility Crisis
Workshop title :
‘Scientific Data Repositories : Use Cases, Innovation, and Best Practices’
Research funding in recent years often comes with the condition to make some of the resulting data openly available. Scientific data can be made available through a number of mechanisms, including being hosted in general scientific data repositories. This workshop will explore various data repositories and data discovery tools, their plans for long term preservation and access to the data they host, provenance and updating/versioning of data, and cross-repository integration and search.
Confirmed Speakers - Alphabetical order
Amir Aryani, ANDS - Research Data Switchboard
Ingrid Dillo & Peter Doorn, DANS - FAIR Data in Trustworthy Data Repositories : Everybody wants to play FAIR, but how do we put the principles into practice ?
Angelina Kraft, TIB - Establishing a generic Research Data Repository : RADAR
William Michener, DataONE - Supporting Data Discovery, Sharing and Reproducibility to Enable New Science
Tim Smith, CERN - Zenodo : A Research Data Repository for All
Dan Valen, figshare - Active Research Data Management Workflows through to Preservation
Reserved for ICSTI members and invited guests, the Members-only session is devoted to the association running and governance,
As a now regular feature of the ICSTI events, member organisations are invited to share with fellow delegates highlights of projects/initiatives/innovations that they recently completed or are implementing via 10/15-minute member-to-member presentations.
For this Barcelona meeting, we are pleased to announce presentations by :
Jan Brase – Gottingen State and University Library
Kathleen Shearer – Confederation of Open Access Repositories. (Guest presentation on key RDA Interest Groups)
Jiao Li – Institute of Medical Information, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences
(Agenda and supporting materials prepared for the Members’ session will be posted in the Members’ Area page for members to download and print out. There will be no hardcopy distribution).
VENUE and ACCOMMODATION
Thanks to our partnership with the Research Data Alliance (RDA), ICSTI delegates can enjoy hotel room negotiated rates.
