ICSTI, the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information, will present two related workshops with presentations by 10 international experts on datacentric topics of central importance. Both workshops will be open to all ICSTI and non-ICSTI delegates. 

- The ITOC Workshop will address the theme ’Enhanced Publications: Approaches to Maximising the Value of Digital Assets to Enhance Scientific Publications’
Current research is presented by a variety of digital assets. Besides text research also includes visualized research data, video, graphics, models and even software code. These digital assets are an important element of contemporary scientific outputs and thus part of our cultural heritage. Unfortunately, no sustainable standard has become established for handling these important assets. Only a negligible proportion of those digital assets are accessible at present, whilst scientific texts are, in principle, sufficiently well-documented and available. This can lead to serious problems when it comes to verify, reproduce and reuse the research results. In this workshop we’d like to focus on approaches and strategies for integration, re-use and re-purposing of data and digital content within scientific publications.

- ITOC Session Speakers:
- Maarten Cleeren, Elsevier - Elsevier : Elsevier’s Article of the Future 
- Neil Chue Hong, Software Sustainability Institute - Software - a different type of research object ? 
- Marco Stella, JoVE - Our Shared Role in Solving Science’s Reproducibility Crisis

- Markus Kaindl, Springer Nature - Springer Nature SciGraph – Building a Linked Data Knowledge Graph for the scholarly publishing domain

 

- The TACC Workshop will address the theme ‘Scientific Data Repositories : Use Cases, Innovation, and Best Practices’
Research funding in recent years often comes with the condition to make some of the resulting data openly available. Scientific data can be made available through a number of mechanisms, including being hosted in general scientific data repositories. This workshop will explore various data repositories and data discovery tools, their plans for long term preservation and access to the data they host, provenance and updating/versioning of data, and cross-repository integration and search.

- TACC Session Speakers:
- Amir Aryani, ANDS - Research Data Switchboard 
- Ingrid Dillo & Peter Doorn, DANS - FAIR Data in Trustworthy Data Repositories: Everybody wants to play FAIR, but how do we put the principles into practice?
- Angelina Kraft, TIB - Establishing a generic Research Data Repository: RADAR
- William Michener, DataONE - Supporting Data Discovery, Sharing and Reproducibility to Enable New Science 
- Tim Smith, CERN - Zenodo: A Research Data Repository for All
- Dan Valen, fighshare - Active Research Data Management Workflows through to Preservation

The event is intended to update attendees on latest developments and initiatives on the subject as seen from the perspective of a number of differing constituencies.
