The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL)  and FIZ Karlsruhe  – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure cordially invite to the 4th eSciDoc Days to be held on October 26 and 27, 2011, in Berlin, Germany.
eSciDoc, the open source eResearch environment, has been developed by the two organizations to provide applications and services based on a shared infrastructure for managing research and publication data together with the related metadata, relations and access rights.
The two-day conference will provide extensive information about collaborative eResearch environments and related challenges, e. g. the sustainable management of a growing amount of data throughout the research process and the provision of a publishing environment for research results together with research data. Experts with different background in scholarly information management will discuss the latest developments in building digital information infrastructures: researchers and information professionals as well as chief information officers and software developers.
Keynote speaker at this year‘s eSciDoc Days is Simon Hodson, Programme Manager at JISC (UK) for Managing Research Data. Addressing challenges, opportunities and benefits, he will share his expertise in promoting and supporting good data management and data sharing in higher education and research.
The first day will give a general overview of eSciDoc and its growing community as well as the basic services and customized applications. On the second day there will be a track with three focal topic sessions: “Infrastructure Projects”, “Research Data Management” and “eSciDoc – Getting started”. These sessions will provide progress reports with up-to-date information and talks with practical relevance giving a comprehensive introduction to eSciDoc and its fields of application. Two additional “hands-on” tracks with comprehensive tutorials will give participants with technical background the opportunity to familiarize themselves with installing the eSciDoc Infrastructure and developing their own individual eSciDoc Applications.
Of course, there is also room to discuss future developments and project ideas with experts from the MPDL and FIZ Karlsruhe. They are looking forward to meeting you at the eSciDoc Days 2011.
