DataCite Summer Meeting 2010: The international consortium invites to its first workshop

DataCite, the international consortium for the citation of research data invites together with the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) to its first summer meeting from June 7th to 8th 2010 in Hannover, Germany.

DataCite was founded in December 2009 and its objectives are to make it easier for scientists to access research data over the Internet, to increase acceptance of research data as quotable scientific objects in themselves and thus to ensure that the rules of good scientific practice continue to be adhered to.

The scope of the event is to provide a forum to data centres to exchange experience, workflows and standards for the handling of research data. Under the theme „Making datasets visible and accessible“, experts will discuss the following topics:

- Metadata for datasets: More than pure citation information?
- Peer-review systems and the publication of data sets: Ensuring quality
- Trustworthiness of data centres: A technological, a structural and a legal discussion
- Best-practise and examples: What can be done and is done worldwide?
- Visualisation of datasets: More than meets the eye
- Datasets and scholarly journals: A perfect combination?
The full programme and additional information on the venue and registration can be found on the website

DataCite has 12 members from 9 countries: The British Library, the French L’Institut de l’Information Scientifique et Technique (INIST), the Technical Information Center of Denmark, the library of the TU Delft from the Netherlands, the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI), the California Digital Library (USA), the Purdue University (USA), the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), the German National Library of Medicine (ZB MED), the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), GESIS- Leibniz Institute of Social Sciences and the library of the ETH Zurich in Switzerland.

DataCite is following the example of the successful work by the TIB as the world's first DOI-registration agency for research data. Since 2005 the TIB has already registered around 700,000 research data objects with a DOI name making the data easier to access and at the same time rendering them quotable. DataCite is an

official DOI registration agency and a member of the International DOI Foundation (IDF). The DataCite office is managed by the TIB in Hannover.

The TIB is the German National Library for all areas of engineering as well as architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. It is the largest library in the world in its areas.

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
