Call for Contributions
Digital Research practice, tools and infrastructures have been embraced by researchers across all disciplines. In sciences and humanities, from big data analytics to citizen scholarship, we are harnessing our new digital capabilities ranging from the Web and new devices to e-Infrastructure, High Performance Computing and the Cloud. While adoption and investment grow the community continues to innovate. The goal of Digital Research 2012 is to showcase today’s digital research practice and innovation, and to set an influential agenda for tomorrow.
This year we are inviting contributions under the themes of Digital Research Innovation Showcase and Digital Research Futures. The scope is the broad digital research ecosystem, which includes digital research applications in any discipline (sciences, digital humanities, creative and performing arts), tools, methods, practice, all aspects of e-Infrastructure, the research environment, digital curation, data management policy and practice, analytics, modelling, simulation, open science, open data and software, linked data, automation, standards, long tail and citizen science, knowledge infrastructure, sustainability, research communication, reproducible research, learning, training (e.g. data science curriculum), design and responsible innovation.
Call for Contributions: Digital Research Innovation Showcase
Digital Research 2012 will be showcasing the state of the art in Digital Research. We invite short papers presenting your Digital Research project, emphasising innovative Digital Research practice, tools, resources and outcomes. Please indicate your preferred presentation format: oral, poster, demo or video.
The submission format is a 3 page (1200-1500 words) extended abstract. All submissions will be peer-reviewed for their original contribution to the state of the art. Submissions for oral presentation may be accepted instead for poster presentation. All accepted abstracts will be made available in the online proceedings.
Call for Contributions: Digital Research Futures
This year’s theme is the Future of Digital Research. We invite short papers, stories and videos giving your glimpse of Digital Research in the Future in (and between) any disciplines. We encourage originality and forward- thinking, and there will be awards for the best-rated submissions.
These glimpses of our Digital Research Future may be based on your current research and should draw on your insights and vision. Short papers set out your view on the evolution of some aspect of the digital research ecosystem. Stories and videos could address the above with alternative narratives like “a day in the life” of a researcher or mock-up media coverage, and your submission should include a rationale for your vision, and include references, to assist with peer review. Creativity is definitely encouraged.
The submission format is a 3 page (1200-1500 words) short paper. All submissions will be peer-reviewed for their original contribution to the Digital Research agenda. Position papers and stories may be accepted either for oral or poster presentation at the conference. All accepted papers will be made available in the online proceedings.
Please submit your abstracts and short papers via EasyChair by 13th August 2012 – further instructions, and information about collocated workshops, can be found on the digital research website.
