Collaborative eResearch environments – “eSciDoc Days” provide extensive information

17.10.2011
Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) and FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure will present the 4th eSciDoc Days on October 26 and 27, 2011 in Berlin, Germany / Topics include: sustainable management of research data, provision of a publishing environment for research results / Target groups: scientists, information experts in libraries and data centers, and software developers.

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 an eResearch environment developed specifically for the global and interdisciplinary collaboration of scientific communities. It comprises a generic, discipline-independent infrastructure and customized applications that enable inno¬vative eResearch scenarios. Scientists, librarians, and soft¬ware developers can work with research data, create novel forms of publications, and establish new ways of scientific col¬laboration.

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.

About the Max Planck Digital Library
The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a scientific service unit within the Max Planck Society (MPS), established in January 2007. The MPDL provides services to help MPS researchers manage their scientific information workflow. Such services comprise the provision of actual content and of technical solutions, but also the support to users by acting as a centre of competence and a community facilitator in the domain of scientific information management. This is achieved through close collaboration with the Max Planck Institutes and their libraries. The core activities of the MPDL lie in building up infrastructures and tools for publications and research data. A substantial task of the MPDL is to provide most effective access to scientific information and fostering the Open Access policy of the Max Planck Society.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
