Joint Conference on Data Science 2018 (JCDS18)

Édimbourg, Royaume-Uni

Call for Papers

The aim of the Joint Conference on Data Science 2018 (JCDS18) is to bring together academics, policy-makers, and business people passionate about the emergent field of data science as a force for strategic transformation in an academic and professional context. This data science conference arises out of a series of successful predecessor conferences (like e.g. EDISON Champions Conferences initiated by the Europen H2020 project EDISON) ; the data science conference series has been created to foster a vital exchange between parties from industry and academia interested in the wide field of data science. Essentially, the increasing availability of vast libraries of digitised information influences the ways in which we comprehend and analyse our environment, and realise businesses for our societal benefit. In this situation, data science creates a transformational force with impact on current innovation potential in industry and academia. Given this transformational potential, it is inevitable that new teaching activities will play a significant role in realising this potential.

JCDS18 will be the first data science conference of this annual series of international conferences. The guiding theme of the conference series is deepening the role of data science as a transformational force for innovation, discovery, and societal benefit. JCDS18 therefore takes up topics that support this grand challenge, that are based around recent data science research and innovation trends besides teaching and training. The data science conference will realise this concern in an integrated programme of lightning workshops and scientific/technical conference tracks, invited talks from renowned speakers, along with network events, as well as accompanying demo sessions.

DARIAH-EU Annual Event 2018

Paris, France
Chalet de la Porte Jaune

The theme for this year’s event will be that of Open Science.

The digitally-enabled arts and humanities have long been a source of collaboration, sharing, openness to new ideas and methods thanks to the profound and pervasive effects of advancing digital research.

Humanists have both pragmatically and philosophically understood that cooperation in teams and openness to innovation are by now intrinsic characteristics of successful research in the field. In recent years, growing out of the broader Open Access movement, the topic of an even deeper Open Science has emerged, both from the research community itself, as well as from research institutions, funders, governments and supranational bodies that wish to see science done in a way that has more impact, is more accessible to both academic peers and the public and is available for inter- and multidisciplinary research.

At this annual event we would like to discuss with the DARIAH.EU community how we deal with issues of open science in the research infrastructure we build, and how the humanities can promote new methodologies for open collaboration.
