## Call for Papers

In the workshop RO2019 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.

RO2019 welcomes submissions of:
 - short research articles (~ 4-8 pages)
 - abstracts for oral communication (~ 1-2 pages)
 - poster and demo mini-abstracts (~ 1 page)

on cross-cutting case studies or specific research on topics including, but not limited to:

 scientific workflows
 FAIR metrics
 platforms, infrastructure and tools
 research data lifecycles
 access control and secure exchange
 examples of exploitation and application
 executable containers
 metadata and annotations 
 data packaging and formats
 credit, attribution and peer review
 big data and distribution
 scholarly communications
 alignments with community efforts
 domain-specific and cross-domain Research Objects.

All accepted submissions will be requested to present at the workshop.

We also welcome suggestions for "unconference" items, e.g. break out
discussions, hackathons, show-and-tell, lightning talks.

## 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. A legacy PDF is permitted. 

Abstracts can alternatively be submitted as GitHub issues.

Accepted articles will be included in the IEEE eScience 2019
proceedings. Submitted preprints will, upon acceptance, be made available as
Green Open Access on the RO2019 website with DOI links to the Zenodo record and
(where applicable) the published IEEE proceeding article.

It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted submission
attends the RO2019 workshop at the IEEE eScience 2019 conference, where
registration fees applies.

Further details on submitting:

RO2019 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.
