Making Data Count: Research data availability and research assessment
Berlin, Neue Mälzerei

http://makingdatacount.eventbrite.com

The possibilities of digital research have altered the production, publication and use of research results. Academic research practice and culture are changing or have already been transformed, but to a large degree the system of academic recognition has not yet adapted to the practices and possibilities of digital research. This applies especially to research data, which are increasingly produced, managed, published and archived, but hardly play a role in practices of research as-sessment.

Aim
The aim of the workshop is to bring experts and stakeholders from research institutions, universities, scholarly societies and funding agencies together in order to review, discuss and build on possibilities to implement the culture of sharing and to integrate publication of data into research assessment procedures.

Practical Information and Hotel
We can recommend booking a room at the NH hotel Alexanderplatz which is very close. This workshop is free of charge and Knowledge Exchange will cover the costs of lunches, coffees and teas. Registration is on a first come come first served basis.

Programme

European Libraries Automatisation GroupEuropean Libraries Automatisation Group @ Ghent University Library
Mai 27_Mai 31 todo o dia

ELAG is the annual conference of the European Libraries Automation Group.

ELAG is Europe’s premier conference on the application and development of information technology in libraries and documentation centres. The annual ELAG (European Library Automation Group) Conference expects over 200 participants from all over the world (mainly library and IT professionals and researchers).

This year’s tag line will be ‘Inside Out Library’: while ELAG 2013 will still be focused on specific, library related IT issues, we want to expand the aim and target audience by addressing innovative topics such as Open Access. ELAG 2013 will also host two pre-conferences: THATCamp, which focuses on researchers in the digital humanities, and an OpenAIRE workshop.

ELAG 2013, the 37th ELAG conference, will take place in Ghent, Belgium from May 28th until May 31st 2013.

Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) 2014 @ University of Zadar, Zadar, Croatia
Jun 15_Jun 19 todo o dia

“Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA) is a biennial international conference that focuses on the transformation of libraries and information services in the digital environment. In recognition of evolving online and social technological influences that present both challenges and opportunities, “ASSESSMENT” is the theme for LIDA 2014. The conference theme is divided into two parts. The first part addresses advances in qualitative assessment methods and practices and the second part covers assessment methods involving alternative metrics based on social media and a wider array of communicative activities, commonly referred to as “altmetrics.” While qualitative methods have a long tradition of application, altmetrics are a set of new approaches to filtering information and to evaluating scholarly communication and research, with possible application to libraries as well. LIDA 2014 brings together researchers, educators, and practitioners from all over the world in a forum for personal exchanges, discussions, and learning, made memorable by being held in an enchanting and spectacularly beautiful city on the shore of the Adriatic Sea.”

ERC Workshop on Research Data Management and Sharing @ Covent Garden, Brussels
Set 18@13:45_Set 19@14:45

On 18–19 September 2014, the European Research Council Executive Agency (ERCEA) in collaboration with the ERC Scientific Council’s Working Group on Open Access is organising a workshop on Research Data Management and Sharing.

During this 2-day event different aspects of this important topic will be explored together with ERC grantees and other researchers, with representatives from funding bodies, universities and other research performers, with publishers, scientific societies, policy makers and other interested parties.

The workshop is organised around a number of interactive sessions with lots of room for discussion. The ultimate aim is to generate a number of concrete recommendations to relevant stakeholders on how to encourage and support good data management practices and facilitate the sharing and re-use of research data.

The workshop is by invitation only. A detailed draft programme, which will be regularly updated, and information on how to request an invitation are available on the ERC website at
