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.

BOBCATSSSS 2014 @ Barcelona
Jan 29_Jan 31 todo o dia

BOBCATSSS is an annual symposium with themes relating to library and information science. The symposium is under the auspices of EUCLID (European Association for Library and Information Education and Research) and it is organized by students from at lest two European universities. The symposium in January 2014 will take place in Barcelona.

This year’s theme is “Library (r)evolution: Promoting sustainable information practices” and the organizing and planning of the BOBCATSSSS 2014 symposium is a collaboration between two universities from two different countries. The teams from Borås (The university of Borås) and Barcelona (Universitat de Barcelona) are working together in making an international meeting place for exchanging experiences and to fulfil the goal to enable a discussion about sustainable development in the field of library and information science.

3rd LIBER Workshop on Digital Curation @ University of Vienna
Mai 18_Mai 19 todo o dia

The management of digital objects (e.g. articles, datasets, images, streams of data, multimedia objects) and non-digital objects (namely real-world entities, like authors, institutions, teams, geographic locations, etc.) is a crucial issue for the whole scientific and administrative process within an academic institution.

The need to unambiguously locate and access the digital resources, as well as associate them with the related metadata (e.g. authors, relevant entities, institutions, research groups, projects, administrative organisational units) is an essential requirement for managing, accessing, reusing, retrieving and preserving huge amounts of cultural and intellectual resources.

Along with the tide of Big Data, the relevance of this issue has been dramatically increased, making it clear that academic institutions have to take actions and develop plans that foster achievement of these goals. In this Conference, we argue that the introduction of comprehensive Data Management Plans is the imminent step for the Instiutions and their repositories which seek to fulfil requirements set to them.

Data Management Plans facilitate the curation process of digital objects. Thus, the time and effort spent by the curators is minimized.

20th International Conference on Electronic Publishing – ELPUB2016 @ University of Göttingen
Jun 7_Jun 9 todo o dia

The theme of the 20th International Conference on Electronic Publishing is
“Positioning & Power in Academic Publishing: Players, Agents & Agendas”

Call for Papers

Proceedings will be published open access by IOS Press. Selected papers will be published in a special edition of the Journal Information Services & Use.


The International Conference on Electronic Publishing (Elpub) reaches its 20th anniversary! Elpub 2016 continues the tradition, and brings together scholars, publishers, lecturers, librarians, developers, entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts.

Elpub 2016 will have a fresh look on the current ecosystem of scholarly publishing including the positioning of stakeholders and distribution of economic, technological and discursive power. Elpub will also open the floor for emerging alternatives in how scholars and citizens interact with scholarly content  and what role dissemination and publishing plays in these interactions. Questions to be raised include: What is the core of publishing today? How does agenda setting in emerging frameworks like Open Science function and what is the nature of power of the referring scholarly discourses? How does this relate to the European and world-wide Open Science and Open Innovation agenda of funders and institutions, and how does this look like in publishing practice?

The conference will investigate the position and power of players and agents, – e.g. scholars and their networks, legacy and academia-owned publishers, research institutions and e-infrastructures – as well as their respective agendas. When looking at these interlinked topics, we aim to sharpen the view for current challenges and ways forward to reshape the publishing system. You are most welcome to join us in this exciting discussion!

Topics include but are not restricted to:

Enhancing publishing, access and reuse  

  • Publishing models on the move (business and funding models, tools, services and roles)
  • Open access revisited (publishing solutions, mandates and compliance, licenses, recommendations, disciplinary initiatives)
  • New publishing paradigm (data publishing and citation, open pre/post publication peer review, executable papers, nano-publications)
  • Interoperability and standards (metadata, identifier, vocabularies, repository integration, scalability, middleware infrastructure)

Quality, trust, skills and competencies

  • Research integrity (authorship and contributor roles, scientific rigor, fraud and paper retraction, reproducible research)
  • Ethical and legal issues (authority, reliability, trust, copyright, privacy)
  • New types of quality assurance (user comments, pre/post publication (open) peer review, etc.)
  • Maintaining high quality standards (cost transparency, management and monitoring of publication costs)

Transforming digital collections

  • Digital collections as data, from processing and visualisation to data citation and new types of publications
  • User engagement and interaction (strategies and incentives, models for participatory projects/experiments, data quality and management, open science, crowd-sourcing)
  • Reader / Information seeking behaviour and testing
  • Enhanced research infrastructures and publishing environments (digital humanities, tools, workflows, interoperability, digital editions)

Data mining and knowledge discovery

  • Big Data and its role in publishing (including use cases, technologies)
  • Text and data mining (natural language processing, text harvesting, dynamic formatting)
  • Open Data, Open Linked Data (solutions, methods, tools, open data challenges)
  • Association mining (knowledge linking, discovery, presentation)
  • Visualization (clustering, graphs, knowledge maps, augmented reality)
  • User behavior and personalization technologies (user studies, social tagging, recommendation services)

Measuring impact and reuse

  • Social networks and interaction analysis (author collaboration trends, publication trends)
  • Bibliometrics and Altmetrics
  • Author identifiers and profiles, citation and attribution

A gestão de ciência tem ganho, nos últimos anos, um papel cada vez mais importante pois a mesma tem o potencial de permitir:aceder a informação relevante, gerir e reportar, optimizar o processo de financiamento, medir e analisar a actividade de investigação, descobrir tecnologias e ideias inovadoras, identificar da concorrência, aceder a informação fidedigna, completa e atualizada sobre as instituições onde se pratica investigação.

Este workshop está organizado em duas partes. A primeira visa traçar um panorama sobre os sistemas de gestão de ciência e o referencial normativo necessário para os interligar. A segunda visa explicar o papel dos repositórios no ecossistema de gestão de ciência e as boas práticas para assegurar uma interação neste ecossistema.
