    Dear all,
    Apologies for cross-posting.
    Please find below the CfP for the 3rd Workshop on Research Objects Metadata
    and Management for Linked Open Science DaMaLOS 2022
    co-located with ISWC
    Drop me a line if you have any questions.
    Kind regards,
    on behalf of DaMaLOS Organizing Committee.
    *DaMaLOS 2022: 3rd Workshop on Research Objects Metadata and Management for
    Linked Open ScienceOnline, October 23 or 24,
    DaMaLOS-2022 workshop (co-located with ISWC)
    will explore what is required for Research Data Management to effectively
    instantiate Linked Open Science, i.e., Open Science + Linked Open Data
    (LOD) principles, including effective support for LOD, automation by, e.g.,
    machine/deep learning approaches, and innovations to include supporting
    data elements such as the software used to produce/consume it together with
    tutorials showcasing their usage. Furthermore, data management should be
    complemented by other research objects management plans, e.g. software and
    workflows, in order to get an integrated layer supporting all the edges of
    Linked Open Science. In this workshop we will keep a focus on data
    management but we will also have opportunities to discuss how other
    research objects play an important role.More information on our website: Submission
    GuidelinesAll papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to
    another journal or conference/workshop. Proceedings of the workshop will be
    publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license. We welcome contributions around
    the topics listed below. This year there are two ways to submit
    contributions (i) workshop submissions and (ii) journal submissions, more
    information right after the list of topics.Topics – Research management-
    Importance of Research Data Management (RDM) for LOD- Importance of other
    Research Objects Management (ROM) and their alignment with RDM and LOD-
    Special features/metadata required in RDM/ROM plans for LOD- RDM/ROM plans
    elements/data that can be automated, particularly using/consuming LOD-
    Links between RDM and ROM plans and how those could be automated-
    Extensions to current RDM plans to better support Linked Open Science,
    e.g., emergence of ROM- FAIRness and FAIRification- Integration/alignment
    between FAIR and RDM/ROM plans and tools- FAIRification processes, either
    by design or post-research-object creation- FAIR tooling- Open Science and
    Scientometrics- Benefits of Linked Open Science, i.e., Open Science +
    Linked Open Data principles, over Open Science- How RDM/ROM plans and LOD
    can be used to improve collection and storage of (usually volatile) data
    produced at, e.g., conferences- Integration of software, data, and any
    other research outcome into science-related metrics- Virtual Research
    Environments- Managing FAIR digital objects in federated, open data
    spaces/infrastructures/ecosystems- Gluing together metadata + publications
    + data + software, (e.g., via management plans, FAIRification efforts or
    open aggregating spaces/ecosystems)Workshop submissionsWe welcome full
    research (introducing novel research contributions, max 10 pages), short
    research (presenting early results or work in progress, max 6
    pages), position (introducing an idea and discussion around it, max 6
    pages) and research objects (description of datasets, software, workflows,
    max 10 pages). Submissions will be evaluated by at least two members of the
    Programme Committee. Accepted papers will be part of the proceedings of the
    workshop and will be publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license at PUBLISSO
    FRL indexed by LIVIVO
    and DBLP .
    Accepted workshop papers will be later invited to submit an extended and
    improved version to the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS)
    . All papers should be formatted
    according to LNCS templates
    Types of submissions – Full research papers (up to 10 pages): Presenting
    novel scientific research- Research objects (up to 10 pages): Describing
    datasets, software, workflows, training materials- Short research papers
    (up to 6 pages): Presenting research results at early stages or ongoing
    work- Position papers (up to 6 pages): Introducing positions, ideas,
    opinions and discussions around them- Demos (up to 6 pages): Presenting
    tools (software, workflows and so) from a practical perspectiveSubmissions
    will be evaluated by members of the Program Committee
    . Submission system. All
    workshop submissions should be done via EasyChair DaMaLOS-2022 workshop
    Please submit your
    workshop contributions no later than 15.Sep.2022Journal submissions to the
    permanent collection at JBioMedSemThe Journal of Biomedical Semantics
    hosts a DaMaLOS permanent collection
    . This year we will
    welcome direct submissions to the journal collection for those researchers
    with a topic mature enough for peer-reviewed journal publication. If you
    opt for this option, please visit the submission guideline
    provided by
    the journal. Make sure you select the DaMaLOS collection when submitting.
    We aim at offering up to 20% discount on the journal submission fee for the
    first 5 submissions.JBioMedSem offers a preprint server for submission to
    the journal while the peer-reviewed process is ongoing.For those submitting
    to the journal track, we would also expect them to join, participate and
    present their works at the workshop. Please submit your journal
    contributions no later than 31.Aug.2022 (journal revisions can take longer
    so we are allowing some more time for it)CommitteesOrganizing committee –
