Encontro Internacional de ArquivosArchives International Meeting @ Universidade do Algarve
Out 4@8:15_Out 5@9:15

O Encontro Internacional de Arquivos, subordinado ao título Instituições, Arquivos e Sistemas de Informação na Era pós-custodial, apresenta-se como a  concretização de um projecto que visa reunir especialistas da área da Informação num espaço que se quer de reflexão e debate.

Pretende estimular-se a partilha de práticas e experiências face aos novos desafios que se impõem aos profissionais, bem como reconhecer as recentes áreas de interesse no campo da investigação. O papel do arquivista, enquanto gestor, tem vindo a afirmar-se nas políticas estratégicas das organizações, na estruturação dos sistemas de informação e nos constantes desafios da sua profissão.  A produção de conhecimento, em contexto técnico e académico, tem-se debruçado sobre o novo perfil e as novas formas de actuação do profissional da informação. Consequência desta mudança de paradigma surge um novo olhar sobre o funcionamento das instituições, dos sistemas de arquivo e da informação.

 

http://eiarquivos2013.weebly.com/

Proposing the theme Institutions, Archives and Post-Custodial Era Information Systems, Archives International Meeting presents itself as the achievement of a project aiming to bring together Information specialists in a reflection and debate environment.

The goal is to promote the sharing of professionals’ new challenges practices and experiences as well as the discussion on research in recent fields of interest. Archivists as managers have been stated in the strategic policies of organizations, in structuring of information systems and the continuous challenges of the profession. Knowledge production in technical and academic context has been addressing information professional profile and new skills. A new perspective on institutions, archival and information systems comes as a consequence of this paradigm shift.

CLASSIFICATION AND VISUALIZATION: INTERFACES TO KNOWLEDGE International UDC Seminar 2013 CLASSIFICATION AND VISUALIZATION: INTERFACES TO KNOWLEDGE International UDC Seminar 2013 @ The Hague, National Library of the Netherlands
Out 23_Out 25 todo o dia

The objective of this conference is to explore cutting edge advances and techniques in the visualization of knowledge across various fields of application and their potential impact on developments in the more main stream bibliographic and documentary classifications.

We invite overviews, illustrations and analysis of approaches to and models of the visualization of knowledge that can help advance the application of documentary and bibliographic classifications in information and knowledge discovery. We welcome high quality, innovative research contributions from various fields of application including:

– visualization of knowledge orders (e.g. scientific taxonomies, Wikipedia)

– visualization of collection content, large datasets

– visualization of knowledge classifications for the purpose of managing the classifications and working with them

– visualization of knowledge to support interactive searching, user browsing behaviour (IR) and classification as an aid to information navigation

 

Specific topics may include:

1. Issues and challenges in visualization of conceptual structures and knowledge in general, e.g. development of knowledge over time, shift in knowledge structures (dynamic knowledge), interactions between knowledge structures, socio-cultural issues, technical challenges (incl. animation, simulation)

2. Knowledge visualization models and metaphors: theory, methods, overviews, analysis

3. Visualization of classification in: information searching and browsing (e.g. search expansion, result display); visualization of knowledge in relation to user information needs

4. Presentation and visualization related to specific types of knowledge classification structure (e.g. faceted and enumerative hierarchies, polyhierarchical and/or aspect classifications etc.)

5. Classification as an aid in presenting and navigating large datasets, or providing an overview of collection content for resource discovery or management purposes

6. Visualization as an aid to cross-collection, cross-language, cross-vocabulary knowledge browsing

7. Relationships between classification data formats and classification visualization

 

We invite two kinds of contributions: conference papers and posters. Paper proposals should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract (1000-1200 words including references for papers and 500-600 words for posters). A submission form is provided on the conference website.

Conference proceedings will be published by Ergon Verlag and will be distributed at the conference.

EuroCRIS @ Porto
Nov 14@9:00_Nov 15@19:00

From the website: http://www.eurocris.up.pt/

 

The Autumn membership meeting of the European Organization for International Research Information  (euroCRIS) will be held in the University of Porto. All sessions will take place at the Faculty of Law and the welcome reception in the historic building of the University. Both places are located in one of the campuses of the University of Porto, in the heart of the historic center of the city.

The European Organisation for International Research Information, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of Research Information Systems and their interoperability, organises biannual membership meetings to involve the members actively in the euroCRIS actions and projects. The membership meetings have gradually evolved to mini-conferences and attract an increasing number of people.

Following the membership meeting held in Bonn last May, euroCRIS is organising the second membership meeting of 2013 which will take place in Porto, Portugal, the 14th-15thNovember, hosted by the University of Porto.

The euroCRIS membership meeting is structured as follows:

  • A euroCRIS overview session: in this session the Board and the Task Groups report from their meetings and on recent progress and plans. In this way all participants get a full survey of all on-going activities and of the action plan for the next six months.
  • A “national” session, in which experts from the organising country report on their CRIS and on recent progress and innovations.
  • The euroCRIS “Jostein Hauge” session, named after the founding father of euroCRIS, in which euroCRIS members report on recent innovations and implementations.
  • A special topic with position papers and/or invited lectures and discussions.
  • Parallel Task Group (TG) meetings with plenary back-reporting. Unlike the technical expert TG meetings, the TG sessions during the membership meetings are accessible to all members and are meant to inform them on ongoing work and plans and to discuss.

In the membership meeting also a CERIF tutorial is included for the local community and interested euroCRIS members.

The special topic for the Porto euroCRIS membership meeting is:

Services, models and architectures for R&D

Institutions are taking several approaches to manage R&D activities with the help of research administration infrastructures, like CRIS (Current Research Information Systems) and IR (Institutional Repositories). The scope of the services offered is very broad and different models and architectures are possible. Institutions go for commercial or in-house built CRIS or IR that may offer significantly different functionalities. IR and CRIS may interoperate, may be centralized at the national agencies level or distributed among universities and research institutes and may connect to other internal or external systems. The aim of this session is to discuss different approaches for services, models and architectures for research administration infrastructures and identify best practices impacting the performance of R&D management.

This meeting is aimed at R&D managers and practitioners as well as IS researchers and developers at universities, R&D institutes and companies, besides euroCRIS members.
A social programme including a welcome reception, a joint dinner and guided visits will allow time to discover the University of Porto and the beautiful city of Porto, giving the opportunity for some relaxation from the intensive work sessions.

The second ANADP (Aligning National Approaches to Digital Preservation) conference has been scheduled for Barcelona, Spain on November 18-20, 2013. This is a follow on to the first ANADP conference which was held in Tallinn, Estonia in May 2011, which was an excellent discussion of potential alignment strategies across various national preservation programs and was documented in a 2012 volume of proceedings published by the Educopia Institute. The outcomes from this meeting, and strategies for moving ahead, have been refined at a 2012 workshop held in connection with iPres, and a just-concluded January 14, 2013 Workshop held in conjunction with the International Digital Curation Conference now taking place in Amsterdam. (I will share a pointer to materials from the January workshop when they are available.)

MTSR 2013: 7th Metadata and Semantics Research ConferenceMTSR 2013: 7th Metadata and Semantics Research Conference @ Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki
Nov 18_Nov 22 todo o dia

The sharing and re-use of research information is becoming an increasingly important aspect of scientific activity. Text publications are – and will be at least for the near future – the predominant way of publishing research output and challenges still exist for their optimal recording and dissemination. Meanwhile, scientific communities recognise the immense significance of storing, discovering, processing, preserving and re-using data sets as well as other types of research objects like workflows and software. Furthermore, Public Sector Information, potentially valuable for research purposes, is provided openly by governments although not always in forms that enable re-use.

Metadata is a critical factor in this area, actually providing the means to promote black-box digital files to discoverable and re-usable objects. A key requirement is capturing and disseminating rich descriptions of research output in standard, semantically clear forms, including contextual and provenance information, such as relationships of publications and data sets with people, organisations, funding information, facilities and equipment. This metadata needs to be some extent independent of a particular research domain, to foster collaboration and re-use of data sets across disciplines and vertical communities, while still allowing the recording and utilisation of domain-specific information. A range of open issues have to be addressed towards these goals.

The aim of this Special Track is to serve as a forum for experts to present recent results and experiences, establish liaisons with other groups and reflect on the state-of-the-art of metadata and semantic aspectsof open repositories, research information systems and data infrastructures.

The programme will reflect cultural, technical and economic perspectives and will illustrate the progress made in this arena in recent months

There will be a programme of workshops on Monday 24 and Thursday 27 February. The main conference programme will run from Tuesday 25 – Wednesday 26 February.
