Workshop on Research Objects (RO2018)

At IEEE eScience 2018 <https://www.escience2018.com/>
Amsterdam, Netherlands, 29 October 2018

This one day workshop will be a mix of presentation sessions and
“unconferencing” sessions including:

  * Keynotes and invited talks
  * Presentations selected from short article submissions and extended
  * Demonstrations and (informal) poster session
  * Lightning talks for those last minute presenters and hot topics
  * Break-out sessions

## Keynote speakers

Federica Foglini
Institute of Marine Science ISMAR, Italian National Research Council CNR

Carl Kesselman 
Information Sciences Institute ISI, University of Southern California USC

## Timeline

**New dates!**

15 July 2018  Oral communication Abstracts and Articles due

31 July 2018  Poster and demo abstracts due

31 Aug 2018   Notification of acceptance

31 Aug 2018   IEEE eScience 2018 early-bird registration deadline

29 Oct 2018   RO2018 workshop at IEEE eScience 2018

Note that the RO2018 workshop timeline differs from the
general Research Track at IEEE eScience deadlines.

Workshop participants are also encouraged to separately propose lighting talks,
breakout sessions and ideas for discussion points for the /unconference/
session of the workshop <https://goo.gl/C1ubw9> 

We have generous support from BioExcel (Centre of Excellence for
Computational Biomolecular Research, H2020-675728) so we will be able to
support Travel Bursaries for accepted speakers.

## Call for Papers

In the workshop RO2018 we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects
and publishing of research data with peer-reviewed presentations, invited
talks, short demos, lightning talks and break-out sessions to further build
relationships across scientific domains and RO practitioners. 

RO2018 welcome submissions for oral communications:

- Short articles: (about 4-8 pages) for more developed research,
  software or data contributions, due 15 July 2018

- Abstracts: (1-2 pages) for oral communication, due 15 July 2018

- Poster and demo abstracts: (1-2 pages), due 31 July 2018

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  FAIR metrics; platforms, infrastructure and tools; lifecycles; access control
  and secure exchange; examples of exploitation and application; executable
  containers; metadata, packaging and formats; credit, attribution and peer
  review; dealing with scale and distribution; driving adoption within current
  scholarly communications and alignments with community efforts; and
  domain-specific and cross-domain Research Objects.


## Research Objects

Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly in recent years, with an
increasing focus on Open Research, FAIR data sharing and community-developed
open source methods. A question remains on how to publish, archive and explore
digital research outputs. 

A number of initiatives have begun to explore how to package and describe
research outputs, data, methods, workflows, provenance and structured metadata,
reusing existing Web standards and formats. 

Such efforts aim to address the challenges of structuring multi-part research
outcomes with their context, handling distributed and living content and
porting and safely exchange what we collectively can call “Research Objects”
between platforms and between researchers.

## Submitting

Submitted abstracts and articles can be in a range of open formats (e.g. HTML,
ePub) and are particularly encouraged to be submitted in a FAIR research data
packing format. 

Accepted articles will be included in the IEEE eScience 2018
proceedings. Submitted preprints will, upon acceptance, be made available as
Green Open Access on the RO2018 website with DOI links to the Zenodo record and
(eventually) the published IEEE proceeding article.

It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted submission
attends the RO2018 workshop at the IEEE eScience 2018 conference, where
registration fees applies.


RO2018 encourages Open Peer Review, and recommend that reviewers 
are named and attributed; however reviewers may be anonymous if so 
desired. Reviewers are welcome to publish their reviews using the
same guidelines as the research articles.
