A comunidade de profissionais que se dedicam à investigação, promoção, comunicação e disseminação de ciência em Portugal tem-se desenvolvido consideravelmente nos últimos anos, com o correspondente aumento na quantidade e qualidade do trabalho realizado nestas áreas. Paralelamente a este crescimento, o interesse pelas questões científicas e tecnológicas e a procura de informação científica aumentou de forma sensível nos diferentes sectores do público. Com esta evolução, também amplificaram as oportunidades e a necessidade de actualização, de debate e de interacção na comunidade de profissionais de comunicação de ciência. O Congresso de Comunicação de Ciência – SciCom PT 2013 pretende ser uma plataforma ao serviço desses objectivos.

ISKO UK BIENNIAL CONFERENCE: Knowledge Organization – Pushing the BoundariesISKO UK BIENNIAL CONFERENCE: Knowledge Organization – Pushing the Boundaries
Jul 7_Jul 9 todo o dia

Knowledge Organization (KO) is not just a fascinating research domain to attract our foremost thinkers; it also presents practical challenges to each of us as individuals, sorting out the files on our desktops physical and virtual, searching for inspiration via the Internet, or participating in the fora of social media. But there’s a paradox: while KO practices permeate society, the name “Knowledge Organization” is known only to a few. Invisible boundaries separate KO researchers from the practitioners who could benefit from their findings, and also come between distinct fields of application such as records management, web design, librarianship, information retrieval, etc.

Open Repositories 2013Open Repositories 2013 @ Prince Edward Island
Jul 7_Jul 12 todo o dia

This year’s conference theme is Use, Reuse, Reproduce. One of the most important roles of repositories is to enable greater use and reuse of their contents— whether those contents are library collections, scholarly articles, research data, or software—and metadata. The notion of use and reuse can be extended to repository infrastructure as well. Many repositories are based on open source software that can be freely reused and adapted to serve local needs; other efforts are also emerging both in conjunction with and outside traditional repository platforms to encourage discipline or community specific reuse and sharing of software, services, and infrastructure. In addition there is a growing interest and need to document and share the code and workflows used to produce research results – particularly in computationally intensive fields – in order to promote reproducible research.

* Live demonstrations of innovative work;

* “Lightning” presentations on any subject relating to current, or future repository endeavours;

* Facilitated Round Table discussions;

* Tutorials and presentations on related topics;

* Workshops and developer day activities including a ‘Code Challenge’;

* Last but not least, after a notable presentation at the 2011 event we are also happy to accept presentations with live musical accompaniment!

 

Keynote speakers will open and close Repository Fringe 2013.

 

The dates of the event coincide with the start of the Edinburgh Festival season, which includes the Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Edinburgh International Festival , Edinburgh International Book Festival, as well as the usual impromptu street theatre, musicians and sideshows.

 

Registration for this free event will open shortly

 

University accommodation is available on a first-come, first-served basis, details are available athttp://www.book.accom.ed.ac.uk/. Please note, accommodation is in high demand at that time of year so early booking is advisable.

Set 1_Set 5 todo o dia

iPRES-2013 will be co-located with DC-2013, the International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications.

A unique common registration will give full access for each delegate to the programme of both the conferences (keynotes will be held in plenary sessions, papers sessions specific of each conference will run in parallel) – http://ipres2013.ist.utl.pt/index.html.

Agenda Overview:

Tutorials: 2 September 2013

Main conference: 3-5 September 2013 (opening the 3 September morning; closing 5 September noon).

Workshops: 5 September 2013 on… (workshops will start the afternoon of the 5 September, lasting half day, full day, …, what necessary…)

DC-2013: Linking to the future @ Lisboa, Portugal
Set 1_Set 6 todo o dia

DC-2013 will explore questions regarding the persistence, maintenance, and preservation of metadata and descriptive vocabularies. The need for stable representations and descriptions spans all sectors including cultural heritage and scientific data, eGovernment, finance and commerce. Thus, the maintenance and management of metadata is essential to address the long term availability of information of legal, cultural and economic value.

On the web, data—and especially descriptive vocabularies—can change or vanish from one moment to the next. Nonetheless, the web increasingly forms the ecosystem for our vocabularies and our data. DC-2013 will bring together in Lisbon the community of metadata scholars and practitioners to engage in the exchange of knowledge and best practices in developing a sustainable metadata ecosystem.

DC-2013 will be collocated and run simultaneously with « iPRES 2013 » providing a rich environment for synergistic exploration of issues common to both communities.

IMCW2013: The 4th International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing WorldIMCW2013: The 4th International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing World
Set 4@8:30_Set 6@9:30

Cloud computing has transformed the ways in which both individuals and enterprises make use of  IT services and network infrastructure within the last decade.  Everything including infrastructure, platforms, applications, software, data, and communication is now seen “as a service”.  Information, the life-blood of scientific progress, economic growth and social development, is mostly produced, disseminated, used, shared and re-used in digital formats nowadays.  Science, industry and business enterprises tend to become “information” enterprises in that even “money” as matter gets converted to “bits” so as to be stored digitally in computers and transmitted as “information” over the network.  Enterprises have tended to spend well over 70% of their time and money to support the information technologies (IT) and network infrastructure. Now they embrace cloud-based services to manage information more efficiently and effectively. As information managers we must now look Beyond the Cloud, collaborate in order to innovate and inspire while trying to predict what the future holds.

 

Submission deadline is March 4, 2013.

Set 9_Set 10 todo o dia

The Research Data Alliance (http://rd-alliance.org) aims to facilitate the global research data sharing and exchange. This international effort encourages increasing interest among people who wish to participate to global research data initiatives. There exists a parallelism of community based harmonization approaches, including worldwide active communities, stimulated by answering the big scientific and societal challenges and driven by the need to address cross-disciplinary challenges. The iCORDI (www.icordi.eu) project in Europe is the European plugin into the global RDA activities and is focusing its activities into RDA Europe.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss European aspects of global research data sharing and exchange as well as inject new ideas and European achievements to be presented and represented during the RDA 2nd Plenary meeting taking place 16 – 18 September 2013 in Washington DC.
The meeting is also an opportunity for those who are unable to attend the Plenary meeting to understand RDA and provide inputs. The workshop will look at the European Commission’s Research Data e-Infrastructures: Framework for Action in H2020 to understand the focus & direction pan-European and global activities should take.

This workshop is the second event in the SCAPE project training programme. It will focus on using tools and workflows to carry out digital preservation actions at scale.

It will begin with an introduction to scalability and will present techniques to use a scalable platform with common preservation tools.

By building on a real use case from the British Library, delegates will gain hands on experience in migrating a large volume of image files to the JPEG 2000 format, verifying each migration against the original file using tools including ImageMagik, jpylyzer and Matchbox.

Delegates will learn about building workflows to invoke multiple operations, and how to share and discover other workflows. By building a scalable environment using Hadoop and Taverna, delegates will then be able to execute their workflow at scale, performing multiple simultaneous migrations and verifications.

 

Learning Outcomes (by the end of the session the attendees will be able to):

  1. Understand scalable platforms and evaluate the situations in which such environments are required.
  2. Apply knowledge of existing tools to solve migration and quality control problems.
  3. Combine and modify tool chains in order to create automated workflows for migration and quality control.
  4. Implement best practice for discovering and sharing workflows for use and re-use.
  5. Make use of a scalable environment and apply a number of workflows to automatically perform migration and quality assurance checks on a large number of objects.
  6. Identify a number of potential problems when working in a scalable environment and propose solutions.
  7. Understand the potential to use scalable platforms in digital preservation and synthesise new opportunities within your own environments.
