eSciDoc is an open source eResearch environment that has been developed by the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) and FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure to provide applications and services based on a shared infrastructure for managing research and publication data together with the related metadata, relations and access rights.
For the 4th time, the two organizations hold the eSciDoc days, a two-day conference that will provide extensive information about collaborative eResearch environments and related challenges. Topics to be addressed are the sustainable management of a growing amount of data throughout the research process and the provision of a publishing environment for research results together with research data. Scientists in research organizations and academic institutions, information experts and software developers will discuss the latest developments in building digital information infrastructures.
Keynote speaker at this year‘s eSciDoc Days is Simon Hodson, Programme Manager at JISC (UK) for Managing Research Data. Addressing challenges, opportunities and benefits, he will share his expertise in promoting and supporting good data management and data sharing in higher education and research.
The first day will give a general overview of eSciDoc and its growing community as well as the basic services and customized applications. On the second day there will be a track with three focal topic sessions: “Infrastructure Projects”, “Research Data Management” and “eSciDoc ‒ Getting started”. These sessions will provide progress reports with up-to-date information and talks with practical relevance giving a comprehensive introduction to eSciDoc and various applications. Two additional “hands-on” tracks with comprehensive tutorials will give participants with technical background the opportunity to familiarize themselves with installing the eSciDoc Infrastructure and developing their own individual eSciDoc Applications. Of course, there will also be room to discuss future developments and project ideas with experts from the MPDL and FIZ Karlsruhe.
The program for the eSiDoc Days 2011 is available at https://www.escidoc.org/About eSciDoc
eSciDoc is intended to ensure open and persistent access to research results and materials of scientific institutions and re¬search organizations like the Max Planck Society.
FIZ Karlsruhe is a member of the Leibniz Association (WGL) which consists of 87 German research and infrastructure institutions. www.fiz-karlsruhe.deAbout the Max Planck Digital Library

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
