3rd National Open Access Workshop @ Council of Higher Education
Out 20_Out 21 todo o dia

Removal of the obstacles to access information will both increase the quality of information produced and enable the rapid development of society with high value-added products and services. For this reason, developed societies have been making legal regulations to provide everyone with free access to scientific publications and research data supported by public funds and implementing very important incentives in this issue.

The Council of Higher Education (CoHE) is going to host 3rd National Open Access Workshop that will be held on 20-21 October 2014 with the intention to discuss open access of scientific publications and research data produced in our country through institutional digital archives and the necessary policy, strategy, legislation and open access infrastructure for this (Workshop Program). The problems and new developments concerning open access issue will be discussed from different perspectives in the meeting where national and international experts and invited speakers will participate.

Launched in January 2014 and being conducted currently, “Higher Education Academic Repository Project” is one of the most important agenda of the meeting. Developments, the current situation, and targets related to the project will be shared with participants. It is believed that the discussions with international experts participating in this meeting will strengthen the studies we are conducting, and empower our goals for the future.

On grounds that “Higher Education Academic Repository Project”, which we believe, is an important milestone on access to scientific information, the goal of the meeting is to introduce the project more closely to partners and get the thoughts and support of the whole stakeholders. All the publishing world, public institutions, private sector representatives, project funders and particularly our universities are the target audience of the meeting.

As the Council of Higher Education, we are pleased to host this meeting in which issues related to scientific knowledge production and sharing will be discussed.

Prof. Dr. Gökhan Çetinsaya
President of the Council of Higher Education

8th International Conference on Metadata and Semantic Research (MTSR 2014)
Nov 27_Nov 29 todo o dia


Cultural Heritage collections are essential knowledge infrastructures that provide a solid representation of the historical background of human communities. These knowledge infrastructures are constructed from and integrate cultural information derived from diverse memory institutions, mainly museums, archives and libraries. Each individual community has spent a lot of effort in order to develop, support and promote its own metadata as tools for the description and dissemination of cultural information, mainly related to its particular resources and use.

The exposure of cultural information into the Semantic Web makes clear that metadata have to be accurate and deeply interpretable in the semantic level. Conceptual Reference Models could facilitate these procedures since they constitute conceptualizations – according to the specific point of view of a memory institution or its particular community – providing at the same time the context for interpreting the respecting metadata to their domain of discourse. CRMs have also been viewed as global schemata in order to map different metadata specifications. At the same time, there are also inter-domain efforts targeted to semantically align data (research data, educational data, public sector information etc.) to cultural information. The management of the cultural information provides challenges associated with (i) metadata modeling, specification, standardization, extraction, evaluation, mapping, integration and effective use, (ii) knowledge representation as conceptualization to provide the context for unambiguously interpreting metadata, and (iii) information integration from different contexts for the provision of integrated access and advanced services to the users.

The aim of this Special Track is to maintain a dialogue where researchers and practitioners working on all the aspects of the cultural information will come together and exchange ideas about open issues in all stages of the metadata life cycle. The track also welcomes works for the connection and interlinking of the Cultural Heritage metadata to any other dataset published in the Semantic Web universe.



The papers in this special track should be original and of high quality, addressing issues in areas such as:

  • Cultural heritage metadata models, standards, interoperability, mappings and integration
  • Automated metadata extraction
  • Ontologies and knowledge representation for the cultural heritage domain
  • Extracting semantics, entities, and patterns from Cultural Heritage collections
  • Collection models and item – collection relationships representation
  • Collection – level metadata modeling and management
  • Linked open data approaches for the cultural heritage domain
  • Composite content-discovery and management of components and interrelationships
  • Large volume content management – high resolution image data sets
  • 3D models-indexing, storage and retrieval approaches
  • Federation of repositories/data infrastructures
  • Integration of intra or inter disciplinary heterogeneous resources
  • Infrastructures for sharing content
  • Digital Curation workflows and models
  • Preservation metadata for cultural heritage digital objects
  • Metadata quality metrics
  • Case studies



Authors can submit either full papers (12 pages) or short papers (6 pages). Submitted papers have to follow the LNCS proceedings formatting style and guidelines.

The submitted papers will undergo the same peer review as the submissions for MTSR 2014 and accepted contributions will be published in the MTSR 2014 proceedings (Springer CCIS series). Authors of accepted papers will be asked to register to the Conference and present their work.

Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers for possible publication in selected international journals, including the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience), and Program: Electronic library and information systems (Emerald) (list incomplete).

More information on submission can be found at the MTSR 2014 call for papers web page.

OpenAIRE Workshop: “Sharing Research Data and Open Access to publications in H2020” @ Ghent | Gent | Vlaanderen | Belgium


Curious about the novelties in Horizon 2020 with regards to Open Access? Did you know that all H2020 projects are obliged to make their publications Open Access and that there is an Open Research Data Pilot?  To shed some light on how to comply with the Open Access mandate and the Open Data Pilot, you are invited to our workshop on November 18th in Ghent, Belgium.

All projects receiving Horizon 2020 funding will have the obligation to make sure any peer reviewed journal article they publish is openly accessible, free of charge.

As a major funder, through Horizon2020, the EU has been at the forefront of implementing Open Access policies. Following the Open Access pilot in FP7, Horizon2020 brings a strong mandate for Open Access to publications as well as an Open Data Pilot for certain areas of research.
The pilot encourages researchers to deposit research data in data repositories to make them accessible and usable to others.
Many questions arise from this policy: how to implement the requirements, where to publish, and what about confidentiality and privacy issues? Issues of priority and planning; what should be taken care of at proposal state, during the project and after the project ends?
This workshop aims to provide answers to these questions. And also provide an arena to exchange experiences, define problems and possible solutions. The target audience is NCP’s, research administrators and project coordinators. Tools will be presented to facilitate data management and experiences will be exchanged to provide hands-on solutions.

The morning plenary session will be devoted to Open Science in Horizon2020. After an introduction by the EC, the benefits of Open Science will be presented by Lennart Martens. The Open Access mandate and the Open Data Pilot will be clarified with examples of how OpenAIRE services can be of help.

The afternoon session will consist of interactive parallel workshops, taking a closer look at the practical implications of the Open Access mandate and the Open Data Pilot.
One track will discuss the mandate; how it affects projects, researchers and how OpenAIRE can be of assistance. A different group will discuss the Open Data Pilot, with a presentation of research data management (RDM) tools.
There will be time for discussion and questions, as your input is important for the success of the project.

Expected outcome of the workshop:

  • For NCPs and research admins: A checklist of actions on how to support H2020 projects
  • Project Coordinators: Information to aid in writing project proposals
  • How to meet Open Access and Open Research Data Pilot obligations during the project
  • Ideas for future support materials

11th International Digital Curation Conference @ Mövenpick Hotel, Amsterdam City Centre, Amsterdam
Fev 22_Fev 25 todo o dia

Research data management, and digital curation generally, is becoming a mainstream academic activity. Universities and research institutions are ramping up support and infrastructural provision for it. Funding bodies are strengthening their requirements for it. Visionary researchers and practitioners are tackling the remaining barriers.

The success of this transition might be measured in two ways. First, is data recognised as a valuable scholarly output, enjoying the same visibility and prestige afforded to journal papers? Second, is the digital curation infrastructure so well embedded and supported that everyone can use it without a second thought?

The 11th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC16) will be held in Amsterdam at the Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre.

The Pre-Conference Drinks Reception will be held on the evening of Monday 22 February 2016 at the Eye Film Institute which is on the northern bank of the IJ harbour in Amsterdam.

There will be a programme of workshops on Monday 22 February and Thursday 25 February and the main conference will run from Tuesday 23 to Wednesday 24 February 2016.

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!

Libraries Opening Paths to Knowledge
Ensuring access to knowledge has always been at the heart of the mission of research libraries. In the digital age, and with the growth of Open Science, this implies not only preserving and providing access to content but also opening up new pathways to interacting with and creating knowledge.
1) Content and Processes
Working ever more closely with researchers throughout the research life cycle to encourage and help them to open up their research process and to make both their outputs and methodologies available during and beyond the life of a research project, libraries are moving from curation to creation and workflows.
2) Services
Engaging in user-led development of services, and a trend towards the creation of shared services as well as developing new methods and opportunities for user engagement.
3) Legal & Ethical
Keeping abreast of emerging legislative developments  and considering how to  act responsibly to address ethical issues in making data open. Opening up new pathways to knowledge and knowledge creation can also have legal and ethical implications related to copyright and data protection.
4) Space & Experimentation
Rethinking library spaces (physical and virtual) to open up opportunities for experimentation and the visualisation of data, and leveraging e-infrastructure to support collaboration and sharing across borders and disciplines.
