ARIADNE Individual training: Scientific datasets

Date: 16 Mar 2015 to 15 Jun 2015
Organizer: Athena Research Centre
Location: Xanthi, Greece

Web page: ARIADNE 2015 Summer Schools

Duration: 3-5 days

Period: April 2015 – November 2015 (limited availability on August)

Description of the TNA offered:

The TNA targets archaeologists (primarily) and scientists with a specific interest in scientific methods available in a specific “theme” of archaeological research and/or archaeologists with a predefined archaeological problem requiring the assistance of scientific methods and data. The goal is to enable researchers and professionals to efficiently create and manage datasets deriving from the use of scientific analytical activity for the documentation of artefacts and the interpretation of archaeological finds.

The topics available for 2015 will be: a) archaeological dating, and b) provenance of ceramic artifacts. 

The TNA will provide the necessary facilities, technical know-how and support to get visitors acquainted with scientific methods available to support the archaeological research, and learn how to:

  • interpret laboratory results / scientific datasets from an archaeological point of view
  • manage and read behind the data (metadata and paradata)
  • incorporate laboratory results / scientific datasets into the investigation of an archaeological problem
  • effectively design archaeological projects that make use of scientific datasets

The Visitor will attend, if it is required, instruction and training sessions on selected methods and as a training exercise, based on the received information, will prepare and execute a “solution” plan for his/her problem or his/her special interest. Upon completion of a visit an “assessment” session will be held to evaluate the outcome of the visit and determine possible required future actions.

An expert–“personal tutor” will be appointed to each visitor that will receive the visitor and provide guidance through his/her entire stay while he will remain available for remote contact and assistance following the visit.

Pre-requisites:

Visitors should come with a predefined problem or a specific interest requiring the assistance of scientific laboratory methods and data.  General knowledge of scientific applications in archaeology is recommended.

Mötesplats Open Access

Date: 14 Apr 2015 to 15 Apr 2015
Organizer: Malmö Högskola
Location: Orkanen, Malmö högskola

Web page: MOA 2015

På Mötesplats Open Access 2015 öppnas det upp för samtal om olika publiceringsformer för tillgängliggörande av forskningsresultat. Man utgår från open access av vetenskapliga artiklar och fördjupning i hantering av data, OA-utgivning av monografier och även nya publiceringsformer. Vad betyder open access inom olika ämnen och hur skapar man bäst förutsättningar för open access grundade i forskarnas arbete?

Open access handlar dessutom inte enbart om kommunikation mellan forskare utan minst lika mycket om kommunikation med det omgivande samhället. Forskningsresultat sprids i nya kanaler och till nya målgrupper. Hur kan forskningsbibliotekens roller och funktioner utvecklas i dessa sammanhang?

Tema för Mötesplats Open Access 2015 är

  • Forskarstöd - relationen forskare-bibliotek i publiceringsprocessen
  • Spridning till andra grupper i samhället - allmänhetens förståelse av vetenskap, samverkan etc.
  • Genomslag - sociala medier, altmetrics, etc.
  • Open access till data, monografier och nya publiceringsformer

Från SND deltar Sofia Arvidsson och Caspar Jordan med presentationen "Datahantering genom hela forskningsprocessen".

IASSIST Conference 2015

Date: 2 Jun 2015 to 5 Jun 2015
Organizer: University of Minnesota, IASSIST
Location: Minneapolis, MN

Web page: IASSIST 2015

"The theme of the 2015 conference "Bridging the Data Divide: Data in the International Context". Going hand in hand with the well-known digital divide is a growing inequity in access to data. Increasing budget concerns have placed strains on governments, universities, and other institutions in the provision of data services. From the cancellation of the Statistical Abstract of the United States, to the controversy over the Canadian Census long form, to political barriers in the data collection process in some countries, access to data and the data divide presents organizational, economic and educational challenges to the community of data professionals worldwide.

As data professionals it is our role to demonstrate how access to data improves organizational standing and relevance, how shared infrastructure reduces the costs for agencies to setup data sharing platforms and how developing data literacy programs fits with the mission of our universities. This year, the international focus of IASSIST shines on how we can improve access to data for people across the globe."

From SND Olof Olsson will participate in the conference.

ELAG Conference 2015

Date: 9 Jun 2015 to 11 Jun 2015
Organizer: Kungliga biblioteket, ELAG
Location: Kungliga biblioteket, Stockholm

Web page: ELAG 2015

"The theme that was chosen for this year ELAG conference is "DATA". Libraries are facing the challenge to get involved in managing not just traditional bibliographic data. We also see that traditional bibliographic meta data needs to be unlocked from the library-domain and should start to comply with the way data is handled outside the library-domain."

From SND Sofia Arvidsson will participate in the conference with the presentation "A system for keeping data around: meeting the challenges of the future".

ARIADNE Summer school: 2D/3D documentation for archaeology

Date: 22 Jun 2015 to 26 Jun 2015
Organizer: ISTI-CNR, The Institute of Information Science and Technologies
Location: Pisa, Italy

Web page: ARIADNE 2015 Summer Schools

Description of the TNA offered:

The goal is to introduce: (a) the technologies for producing 2D and 3D documentation for archaeological purposes, considering both the small scale (artworks, findings) and the large scale (monuments, sites); and (b) the methodologies for providing visual access to the data gathered.  The TNA will provide both lessons (presenting introductions to the techniques) and practical hands-on sessions to test and experiment with the technologies. Participants will be divided in small groups in the latter sessions. Individual work is a primary component of the TNA experience. It is expected that participants will bring research projects or tasks to be accomplished during the Summer School under the supervision and advice of the TNA tutors, and will practice on those case studies.

Pre-requisites: Basic knowledge on the digitization process (3D/2D) and on sampled data processing.

The 1st Annual conference on
Digital Preservation for the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities
 
“Shaping our Legacy: Safeguarding the Social and Cultural Record”
 
hosted by the Digital Repository of Ireland
Dublin, Ireland
25-26th June 2015
 
On the last day of June of 1922, the western block of Dublin’s Four Courts exploded, engulfing the Irish Public Record Office in flames. As smoke billowed from the eighteenth-century construction and the fire brigade struggled to bring the flames under control, debris fell onto the surrounding Dublin streets, and the Irish Times reported that a priceless library was left in ashes. The fire, caused by the outbreak of the Irish Civil War, hit at the heart of government records, destroying hundreds of years of Irish history that had been housed centrally since the 18th century. A few days after the fire, the Provisional Government issued a notice asking citizens to return to public custody any and all of the burned fragments of the public record that had “blown to other districts.”
 
In the current digital age, our social and cultural record is also at risk, but its degradation occurs over time. Instead of burning rapidly, digital records are threatened by a slow-burning fire that can go undetected as a result of insufficient data management practices. Additionally, the preservation of our digital social and cultural heritage is subject to domain- and community-specific requirements. These issues demand that we reflect critically on the purpose of digital preservation, and ask fundamental questions about how requirements should shape our practices. Similar to the public appeal in 1922, we are looking for public, academic and industry engagement on the issue of digital preservation, to help identify the fragments that have been, or are in danger of being lost, as well as to build the digital preservation strategies that will shape and safeguard our public record.
 
To address the complexities of long-term digital preservation in the social and cultural realms, we are hosting the first Digital Preservation for the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DPASSH 2015) conference, titled “Shaping our Legacy: Safeguarding our Social and Cultural Record.” The conference will take place on June 25-26, 2015 at Croke Park, in Dublin, Ireland, and will include international keynote speakers, networking, expert panels, peer-reviewed papers, and posters.
 
Submissions are invited from all sectors and perspectives (academics, researchers, students, industry, cultural heritage institutions, preservation infrastructures, etc.) for a variety of presentation formats that critically reflect on all areas relating to digital preservation in the humanities and social sciences, arts, and cultural heritage sectors.
 
Conference themes include but are not limited to:
 
• Cultural Responsibility & Preservation: critical reflections on preservation, challenges in choosing what to preserve, digital curation, digital stewardship, archiving processes.
• People & Preservation: stakeholder engagement, community approaches, partnership building, education & training, knowledge transfer.
• Policy & Preservation: advocacy, national approaches, sustainability, open access, open data.
• Sharing & Preservation: content curation, contextual information and metadata, aesthetics of preservation, sharing of research data, user tools, crowdsourcing.
• Technology & Preservation: Technical challenges posed by datasets in arts/humanities/social sciences, digitisation vs. the born digital record, preservation infrastructures, software and tools.
• Trust & Preservation: TDRs, provenance, authenticity, certification, security, data protection, copyright, licensing.
