euroCRIS Spring 2019 membership meeting at CSC in Espoo/Helsinki: "Taking steps towards international CRIS systems"
The venue for the Spring 2019 membership meeting was announced last Nov at the closing of the SMM Warsaw: CSC in Espoo/Helsinki, Finland. The event dates are also final now: May 27-29, 2019. The event website will soon become available, together with a draft programme. In the meantime, please check the call for proposals below for contributions to the event programme was sent out on Jan 23rd with a deadline for submissions until the end of March.
While euroCRIS members will enjoy free registration, the event will also be open to non-members via a €60 registration fee. Attending non-members will be entitled to a 12-month euroCRIS membership upon registration.
One of the innovations we're aiming to feature in this Helsinki MM will be a session for 10-min lightning talks that allow smaller findings and local experiences to be reported and questions to be raised. In order to make sure we have sufficient input for holding such a session, this is to request proposals for this session (besides our standard request for regular contributions about 25-30 mins long to the Jostein Hauge session).
We invite the international CRIS community to send in proposals for either session on any of the following topics:
- Case studies in CRIS implementation & operation, with emphasis on new platforms and new configurations for pre-existing platforms
- Research Information infrastructures on a national and international level
- Cross-system interoperability: exchange and reuse of research information from existing resources
- Research information for funders
- Output and performance: trends in research assessment, rankings and bench-marking
- Evaluation of scientific organisations as cultural, societal or economic assets
- Value, impact and outcomes of universities
- Semantic approaches, data mining and profiling in the interpretation of research information
- The (worldwide) uptake of CRIS Systems by various stakeholders
- Identification schemes and standards
- Linked Open Data for research information
- Use cases in the application of CERIF
- Current trends in Open Access and Research Data Management and Archiving
- Meaning of CRISs for Open Science
- (Possible) Role of CRISs in creating FAIR data infrastructures
Given both the venue of the meeting and the lively and active RIM landscape and community in Northern Europe, we hope to be able to welcome a certain number of contributions from Nordic countries.
Please send us a short 200-word abstract for your lightning talk proposal (300 words for a contribution to the Jostein Hauge session) to eurocris [at] eurocris.org. Suggestions for contributions will be accepted until the end of March.
