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

A new assessment of NASA's record of global temperatures revealed that the agency's estimate of Earth's long-term temperature rise in recent decades is accurate to within less than a tenth of a degree Fahrenheit, providing confidence that past and future research is correctly capturing rising surface temperatures.
The most complete assessment ever of statistical uncertainty within the GISS Surface Temperature Analysis (GISTEMP) data product shows that the annual values...
Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.
The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...
Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...
With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.
Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...
'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.
However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...
