Open Science Days 2020
“When looking at the different areas of Open Science in the past years, we were often confronted with the question on where and how the growing significance of Open Science does affect reality of a daily research routine within the various disciplines. Or: how it should be affected? This is the key question we would like to shed light on during the conference. A number of challenges for academic everyday life are reflected by the principles of Good Scientific Practice. Major changes within the complex system of research routine and publication workflows are caused not least by elements of Open Science turning into reality. This applies in particular to the fields of Open Access, Open Research Data and Open Research Software, which have been at the center of attention for quite some time now.”

Open Science Meet-up: Preprints – Opportunities & Pitfalls
“Preprints are on the rise in many research areas and over the last few years several new archives have been established, e.g. for biology, psychology and archaeology. The term itself also may not always be clear, and similar but slightly different approaches exist in other research areas (e.g. working paper). In this meeting we will look into motivations for preprint sharing as well as possible challenges and open issues. Not so easy to figure out for authors is which journals actually allow the posting of preprints and which restrictions may apply (e.g. due to lack of clear information on journal websites).”

“Was Hochschulen und die Digitalisierung mit dem Klimawandel zu tun haben? Nicht nur auf den ersten Blick – eine ganze Menge. Wir sehen einerseits die Hochschulen in einer zentralen Rolle dabei, durch Online-Lehre tatsächlich den ökologischen Fußabdruck verkleinern zu helfen: wegfallende Anfahrtswege, Heizkostenersparnis und weniger Bedarf an ressourcenintensiver Klimatisierung von großen Institutionen sind nur einige Schlagworte dazu. Den Klimawandel erleben wir andererseits auch bereits im übertragenen Sinne, buchstäblich als Sinneswandel beim Thema Digitalisierung: ein Auf und Ab, Heiß und Kalt von Fortschritt und Ernüchterung bei der Implementierung. Vom Anbeten der Infrastruktur oder goldener (Tool-)Kälber hin zur Berücksichtigung gesellschaftlicher Diskurse um digitale Ethik und Bildungsbegriffe.”

FAIRification of Services – Two Examples
“The webinar is offered by FAIRsFAIR Work Package FAIR Practices: Semantics, Interoperability, and Services, and explores two facets of the FAIRification of services: the FAIR assessment framework for data services, and the features of FAIR repositories. The FAIR principles are explicitly targeted at both metadata and data, with data here being regarded as any digital resource, asset or object (e.g., APIs, workflows, ontologies, models, and others). However, digital objects can not be made FAIR without supporting infrastructure services that are FAIR themselves. One approach is a systematic evaluation of the FAIRness of services. In this regard, FAIRsFAIR is developing a FAIR assessment framework for data services alongside a similar framework for research software. The interim “Assessment report on ‘FAIRness of services” is the topic of the first part of the webinar. The webinar will briefly review FAIR assessment frameworks for data and other digital objects and motivate the need for a similar framework for services. In the second part, the focus is on repositories, which not only give access (with needed restrictions) to research data and metadata, but are searchable and offer persistent identifiers which offer or enable search functionality. Deliverable 2.3 Set of FAIR data repositories features presents a list of the features of repositories which allows repositories not only to host FAIR digital objects but also to be FAIR themselves.”

2020 EUA Annual Conference
“Universities play a crucial role in creating knowledge and fostering democratic and sustainable societies. Their impact on wellbeing and the development of a thriving, competitive Europe stems from educating future leaders, professionals, researchers and citizens. It equally comes from curiosity-driven research aimed at identifying and meeting the broad challenges we all face and outreach to local and global industry and governments to foster much-needed innovation. Yet demonstrating and communicating universities’ impact at the societal level is a challenge in itself. Universities need strong leadership, a focused strategic approach, as well as coordinated efforts across Europe and beyond. The 2020 EUA Annual Conference will provide a platform to explore how universities are making a difference, how their impact can be maximised and how to give visibility to their key role in addressing broad challenges.”

Webinar: Web-scraping for Social Science Research: APIs as a Source of Data
“This free webinar delineates the value, logic and process of capturing data stored in online databases through an API (application programming interface). Vast swathes of our social interactions and personal behaviours are now conducted online and/or captured digitally. In addition to common sources such as social media/network platforms and text corpora, websites and online databases contain rich information of relevance to social science research. Thus, computational methods for collecting data from the web are an increasingly important component of a social scientist’s toolkit.”

DARIAH Annual Even 2020: Scholarly Primitives
“It has been twenty years since John Unsworth famously formulated scholarly primitives (discovering, annotating, comparing, referring, sampling, illustrating and representing) as a set of basic scholarly activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras. We will use the DARIAH Annual Event 2020 as an opportunity to re-evaluate and probe the notion and scope of scholarly primitives in the context of the ongoing developments in the field of Digital Humanities and DARIAH’s continuous efforts in shaping an effective and sustainable research infrastructure that meets the needs of humanities scholars. Some of the questions that we hope to ask are: can we – and should we – put our conceptualization of scholarly primitives into a historical perspective as an expression of a particular stage in the development of Digital Humanities? Have scholarly primitives been conceptually robust enough to keep up with the field, which now includes big data, visual analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence? Finally, are scholarly primitives – and the way we speak of research as we build tools to support it – free of ideology and bias?”

Digitaler Dialog: Corona-Schock im Bildungssektor. Die Krise als Lernauslöser
“Einen Normalbetrieb wird es an Universitäten und Schulen erst einmal nicht geben. Die Bildungseinrichtungen sind weiter besonders gefordert und brauchen nachhaltige digitale Lösungen in der Krisensituation. Die Corona-Zeit zeigt, dass Politik, Wissenschaft und Institutionen sich schneller bewegen müssen als bisher – und das auch können! Prinzipiell notwendige Digitalisierungsprozesse im Bildungsbereich erscheinen plötzlich realisierbar oder wurden in den vergangenen drei Monaten bereits angepackt. Wie können uns diese Erfahrungen auch in Zukunft als Wegweiser dienen, um wichtige Entwicklungen zügig voranzutreiben?”

ZWM@Home Digitaltagung State of the Art 2020: Wissenstransfer als Aufgabe von Hochschulen und Forschungseinrichtungen
“Was sollen Wissenschaftseinrichtungen innerhalb der Gesellschaft leisten, wie können sie eine ihnen adäquate Rolle einnehmen und welche Beziehungen zu gesellschaftlichen Akteuren und Institutionen sollen sie etablieren, pflegen und weiterentwickeln? Wissenstransfer, Third Mission und regionales (oder weiterreichendes) Engagement von Hochschulen wie außerhochschulischen Forschungseinrichtungen sind zentrale Anforderungen, die dazu beitragen, den wirtschaftlichen Erfolg und die kulturelle Vielfalt einer Gesellschaft zu gewährleisten und zu befördern. In Zeiten von Digitalisierung, Wissensgesellschaft und einer mehr und mehr wissensbasierten Ökonomie verschränken sich soziale, wirtschaftliche und kulturelle Bedarfe der Gesellschaft und die entsprechenden Aufgaben von Hochschulen bzw. Forschungsinstitutionen unauflösbar.”

Online Panel „Best Practice in der digitalen Lehre
“Digitale Lehre ist Chance und Herausforderung zugleich. Die vergangenen Monate haben gezeigt, wie kreativ digitale Lehre sein kann, aber auch, dass eine rein digitale Lehre an Grenzen stößt. Viele Lehrende in den Wirtschaftswissenschaften mussten sich mit gesichtslosen und oft auch reaktionsarmen digitalen Seminarräumen und Hörsälen auseinandersetzen, mussten die Grenzen asynchroner Lehre und ausbleibende direkte Resonanz aushalten. Aber Not macht erfinderisch.
Wir befragen in unserem ersten Online Panel „Best Practice in der digitalen Lehre“ Dozent*innen der Wirtschaftswissenschaften bundesweit. Diese wurden von ihren Fachschaften vorgeschlagen als Hochschullehrer*innen, die mit ihrer digitalen Lehre begeistern.”

re:publica 20: ASAP
“Motto ASAP (“as soon as possible”). With an even greater urgency than usual #rp20 will highlight issues relating to sustainable digital infrastructure as a human right, which in today’s world is a prerequisite for social participation. We question prolonged processes in terms of resource efficiency and renewable alternative energies. We focus on the most important social, economic, and ecological issues that are increasingly endangering a free and peaceful society. We seek dialogues on issues of global climate change, migration policy, nationalism, and racism, and discuss the parameters decisive to socio-political turbulence and economic dynamics. Politicians are always assuring us that what is necessary will be implemented as quickly as possible, but this is not fast enough for us! We are wasting valuable time with a long-winded, circular debate culture! What is needed now is the courage to make decisions! ASAP!”

To enable this, we need to build bridges and take down barriers. Driving research collaborations effectively requires new and powerful infrastructures to not only be developed, but also to be accepted by the wider research community. This includes the development of standards for data reporting, meta-data and exchange formats that allow easy indexing and findability, as well as the use and exchange of data and information (FAIR Data) particularly within an interdisciplinary environment. Technical innovations are, however, only part of the story; just as important are the changes in culture and incentives that will make depositing and sharing data the norm.”

Women in Tech: How to Access the World’s Greatest Untapped Talent Pool
“It’s no secret that, in the Internet industry, there are currently far less women employed as specialists than men. For every 1 woman tech expert working in the industry, globally there are currently 3 men – and in Europe, there are as many as 5. This is a situation that has not been improving in most countries, and which is further degenerating due to Covid-19. The upshot? Tech employers across the globe are in urgent need of more female talent, not just to boost innovation and financial returns, but also to address an ever-deepening skills deficit. Where do we stand in the area of gender diversity? And, most importantly, how do we get to grips with the challenges that need to be tackled now?

“Digital preservation is all about collaboration. All are welcome in this dynamic and diverse community. Everyone has something to offer:- computing and engineering; libraries and archives; researchers and their audiences; the past and the present; the present and the future. Collaboration has been a central pillar of a shared response to a shared global challenge. If you are working in digital preservation and you are not collaborating, then you are on a lonely road. In this year of lockdown and distancing a familiar fact becomes apparent. You cannot collaborate alone. Here’s the paradox. In the year in which we all have most in common, we are able to share least. In the year when digital infrastructures have become central to our lives, our opportunities to plan and reflect on our own digital infrastructures are subdued. In the year when we have learned so much and have so much to tell, we are most constrained in how we impart all that new-found and hard-won knowledge.”

“Wie erleichtern wir den Zugang zu Informationen – und zwar für alle? Mit Open Access kommen wir der großen Utopie von freien Forschungsergebnissen etwas näher: kostenloser, digitaler Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Publikationen. Die Covid-19-Pandemie hat erneut gezeigt, wie wichtig es nicht nur in Krisenzeiten ist, dass Bibliotheken, Universitäten und Verlage ihre Veröffentlichungen digital und kostenfrei zugänglich zu machen. Dem Abbau von finanziellen, technischen oder rechtlichen Barrieren stehen jedoch immer noch veraltete Geschäftsmodelle im Weg. Wie zugänglich sind die Online-Publikationen tatsächlich? Und global betrachtet: Für wen? Wie bauen wir bestehende Barrieren ab und finden innovative Wege, wissenschaftliches Wissen mit der Gesellschaft zu teilen?”

Rethinking Culture and Science – Opportunities, Risks and Developments of the Digital Revolution in Europe
“Advances in technology, digitisation, new expectations, and demands from society and the political arena are forcing Europe’s cultural and scientific institutions to deal with changing tasks, challenges and processes. However, they are also dissolving barriers, mixing media and object formats, and facilitating novel methods of usage and communication. As a result, libraries, archives and museums are growing closer, working together on solutions to new challenges and open questions in dialogue with scientists, and using the same or similar tools when performing their tasks. What are the most important challenges and innovations? How suitable for use are these solutions at present, and how far are they being implemented in cultural and scientific institutions? What opportunities does this offer for the visibility of libraries, archives and museums?”

GeNeMe – Communities in New Media 2020: From hybrid realities to hybrid communities
“Digitisation has established itself as the change maker in business, science and society. Infrastructures, working methods and skills are at the focus of many debates and increasingly influence the future viability of entire industries. We have obviously embraced the permanent change with increasing acceleration. But: Where is the journey really going? Are communities constituted exclusively in the interplay of hybrid realities? Are large amounts of data a threat or an opportunity? Can we process them at all or do we need fundamentally different tools and methods – such as visual analytics, virtual reconstruction, virtual engineering, virtual assistants and cooperative VR? Until recently, IT innovations were something for digital experts, but hybrid communities in virtual reality are now part of everyday life. But what do managers have to prepare for? Digitalization means new opportunities for openness, transparency and participation. Will this also lead to a revival of human-centered management activities?”
