The FORCE11 annual conference is a different kind of meeting, where stakeholders come together – or scrummage – for an open discussion, on an even playing field, to talk about changing the ways scholarly and scientific information is communicated, shared and used. Researchers, publishers, librarians, computer scientists, informaticians, funders, educators, citizens, and others attend the FORCE11 meeting with a view to supporting the realisation of promising new ideas and identifying new potential collaborators.
RDA 14th Plenary in Finland brings together data experts in research, industry and policy-making from all around the world and from all disciplines under the theme Data Makes the Difference.
With this theme, the meeting addresses the extensive potential of research data in
improving decision making,
tackling grand societal challenges, and
engaging citizens in the creation of knowledge and betterment of society.
With more than 23,000 Earth and space scientists in 2016, AGU’s Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. The meeting continues to be the premiere place to present your research; hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field; and network with colleagues that can enhance your career.
The THOR mission
THOR is a 30 month project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. It will establish seamless integration between articles, data, and researchers across the research lifecycle. This will create a wealth of open resources and foster a sustainable international e-infrastructure. The result will be reduced duplication, economies of scale, richer research services, and opportunities for innovation.
THOR follows on from the successful ODIN (ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network) project. The project has four concrete aims:
- Establishing interoperability
- Integrating services
- Building capacity
- Achieving sustainability
The FORCE 11 group (the Future Of Research Communications and E-scholarship) aims to improve knowledge creation and sharing by encouraging better use of new technologies. The 2017 conference, will address topics such as transparency in research workflows, the importance of effective communication both within and beyond academia, and visualization of science and scholarship.
The purpose of the conference is to explore the fundamental issues relating to the availability, (re-)use and scientific analysis of data that relate to the most significant contemporary global challenges.
The pace of change in scholarly communication technology is accelerating. In a relatively short period, digital publishing enabled the development of a new business model - open access - and it's only a few short years ago that article and alternative metrics appeared on the radar…
The EGU General Assembly 2017 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
The Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) will hold the Third International Science Meeting at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland 23-25 March 2017. This meeting will showcase recent results from scientists working in all fields of deep carbon research.
