Summer School in Statistics 2014 - Multilevel Modeling

Datum: 2014-06-09 till 2014-06-11
Organisatör: Örebro University and Statistics Sweden
Plats: Örebro

Hemsida: Summer School in Statistics 2014

Many kinds of data used in analysis and estimation have a hierarchical structure, where data observations can be clustered at one or several levels. For instance, an employee is hired at a department, at a local unit of an enterprise; or a pupil is in a class, at a school within a school district. Failing to take hierarchical data structures into account in the analysis and estimation may result in invalid inferences. This summer school gives an introduction to multilevel modeling, which provides tools for addressing hierarchical data structures.

Open Repositories Conference 2014

Datum: 2014-06-09 till 2014-06-13
Organisatör: University of Helsinki
Plats: Helsinki, Finland

Hemsida: OR 2014

The Ninth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2014, will be held 9-13 June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. This year’s conference theme is:

Towards Repository Ecosystems

Repository systems are but one part of the ecosystem in 21st century research, and it is increasingly clear that no single repository will serve as the sole resource for its community. How can repositories best be positioned to offer complementary services in a network that includes research data management systems, institutional and discipline repositories, publishers, and the open Web? When should service providers build to fill identified niches, and where should they connect with related services?  How might these networks offer services to support organizations that lack the resources to build their own, or researchers seeking to optimize their domain workflows?

Examining how repositories best integrate into the holistic research flow; exploring ties between domain-specific repositories and institutional repositories; and understanding durable content strategies outside of traditional repository environments are the central themes of the Open Repositories 2014 conference. They welcome proposals on these themes, but also on the theoretical, practical, organizational or administrative topics related to digital repositories. They are particularly interested in hearing about:

  • Unconventional approaches to repository-like services
  • Interconnection between publishers and repositories
  • Researcher-centered design for scholarly workflows
  • Adaptations to support curation lifecycle management, e.g., for research data
  • Real-world scalability and performance stories: working at web-scale, with big data for global usage
  • Requirements for holding restricted or classified data in repositories
  • Infrastructure to accommodate national and international mandates for data management and open access
  • Positioning repositories closer to (local, consortial, or cloud-based) cyberinfrastructure for data processing
  • Leveraging connections to external services including:
    • Remote identifier services (e.g., DOI, ORCID)
    • (Re-)using repository data/metadata in new and unexpected ways, including integrated discovery
    • Scholarly social media services, such as for annotation, review, comment, reputation, citation, and altmetrics
    • CRIS and research management systems
    • Digital preservation tools, services & infrastructure
  • Community and sustainability in an open world


  • 3 February 2014: Deadline for submissions
  • 4 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to general conference
  • 17 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to interest groups
  • 9-13 June 2014: OR2014 conference

2D/3D documentation for archaeology

Datum: 2014-06-23 till 2014-06-27
Organisatör: ISTI-CNR
Plats: Pisa

Hemsida: ARIADNE, Programme

Content: The school aims at providing training and hands-on experience on the tools for producing and managing 2D and 3D documentation for archaeological purposes, both for objects and for monuments/sites, including the related visualization tools. The school will provide an introduction to the technologies and tools in the first 2-3 days and a hands-on activity in the remaining ones, organizing the students in small groups. It is expected that each student will bring her/his own research project, so that practice can be made on case studies of direct interest for the students.

Since its inception, the Consortium has offered the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research as a complement to its data services. The Summer Program provides a comprehensive, integrated program of studies in research design, statistics, data analysis, and social science methodology. Its instructional environment stresses integration of methods of quantitative analysis within a broader context of substantive social research. Instruction is grounded in interactive, participatory data-analysis utilizing high-end, networked microcomputers. Because of the range of methodological instruction, the opportunity for intensive study, and the quality of instruction and supporting facilities, the Summer Program has become internationally recognized as a preeminent forum for basic and advanced training in the methodologies and technologies of social science research and instruction.
