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 the ICSTI event is an Associated Event to the RDA 9th Plenary meeting taking place at the same venue on 5-7 April 2017.
As is now customary, this ICSTI Annual Members’ Meeting & Workshops will comprise three parts : the Members only session devoted to running and governance, 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.
’Multimedia Publishing and Data Visualization’
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 to visualize data and make the variety of digital assets discoverable and accessible through databases and plattforms.

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.

As a regular feature of the ICSTI meetings, member organisations are invited to share with fellow delegates highlights of projects/initiatives/innovations that they recently completed or are implementing via short 10-minute member-to-member presentations. We look forward to your active participation !
(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).
