This week I’m attending a conference titled Collaborations Workshop 2019, run by the Software Sustainability Institute of the UK. The conference focuses on interoperability, documentation, training and sustainability. I’m blogging my notes from the talks I attend. All credit goes to the presenter, and all mistakes are my own.
By Alejandra Gonzalez-Beltran, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow. This year I was invited to attend the Interoperability of Metadata Standards in Cross Domain Science Health and Social Science Applications workshop, which was held at the beginning of October 2018 in the Schloss Dagstuhl, Leibniz Center for Informatics, in Wadern, Germany.

ConfOA is the Brazil-Portugal Conference about Open Access and the 9th edition was hosted in Lisbon, Portugal between the 2nd and 4th October 2018. Although the conference only has open access in its name, it is the place to talk about the broader concept of open science with many stakeholders.

By Raniere Silva, Software Sustainability Institute. Following up discussions around culture change and productivity at this year’s Collaborations Workshop (CW18), interoperability is one of Collaborations Workshop 2019 (CW19) themes. The Oxford Dictionary defines interoperability as "the ability of computer systems or software to exchange and make use of information." Today, interoperability is a key factor for researchers, not only because it increases efficiency and accuracy, but also because it makes collaborative efforts more fluent.
