Subject: [CODATA-international] DEADLINE APPROACHING: Göttingen-CODATA Symposium on RDM in Universities, DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS, 15 JANUARY

DEADLINE APPROACHING: a final reminder of the deadline - 15 January - for abstract submissions to the Göttingen-CODATA Symposium 2018 on ‘the critical role of university research data management infrastructure in transforming data to knowledge’.

The event will be a timely and major appraisal of progress in institutional endeavours to address the challenge of improving research data management for the benefit of science.  The symposium will feature invited speakers of international renown as well as papers from institutions from around the world.  The themes are designed to ensure that the event will allow the community to appraise progress and share knowledge in key areas of institutional RDM activity: http://conference.codata.org/conference/2018_Goettingen_RDM/symposium-themes/

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit them to a special collection of the Data Science Journal https://datascience.codata.org/collections/special/

Topic of the Symposium: ‘The critical role of university RDM infrastructure in transforming data to knowledge’
All over the world universities and libraries have started the task of developing research data services. Ideally such initiatives aim to result in a complete service portfolio covering the entire research lifecycle: support in writing proposals and data management plans, repository infrastructures for the storage of data, support in publishing data, assignment of persistent identifiers, lecturing in data management, etc. This broad scope means that such services are often seen as requiring a joint effort from from university, library, IT centre, faculties and other stakeholders.
Nowhere in the world has such a complete support scenario been perfected. It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives internationally to share their practical experiences, research and insights.
Please note the range of themes listed below and at http://conference.codata.org/conference/2018-Goettingen-RDM/symposium-themes/

Important Points About Abstract Submissions
·  Proposals for long papers should be 1200-2000 words.
·  Proposals for short papers should be 300-600 words.
