Wf4Ever presented at the CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication
6/28/11 4:16 PM

Wf4Ever was presented at the CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI7), held in Geneva on the 22nd-24th June, 2011

The workshop is held every two years and is aimed at those involved in the development of Open Access (OA) repositories and who can influence the direction of developments either within their institution, their country or at an international level - that includes technical developers of OA bibliographic databases and connected services, research information policy developers at university or library level, funding bodies concerned with access to the results of their research, OA publishers,and influential researchers keen to lead OA developments in their own field. This year's workshop saw some 250 participants gather at the University of Geneva.

In the opening plenary presentation, Sean Bechhofer spoke on "Research Objects: Towards Exchange and Reuse of Digital Knowledge", outlining the Wf4Ever vision of Research Objects and how they will support scientists in conducting reusable, reproducible research.

Wf4Ever present at the workshop of the Landscpe and Identities
6/13/11 2:39 PM

Wf4Ever was involved in a technical workshop of the "Landscape and Identities" EngLaID project, held at Oxford e-Research Centre on 8 June 2011. The EngLaID project will explore the long-term changes in the landscape of England and its artefactual traditions, and to demonstrate how new questions relating to landscape use can be posed and answered easily and efficiently, utilizing web services to combine dispersed databases. Our common interest was in the use of provenance information to underpin the reliability and trustworthiness of research data, and also issues concerning applications built using RDF data stores. In a brief introduction (without slides), Graham Klyne from University of Oxford outlined our project and its work with scientific workflows, and our plans to use provenance information to support integrity and authenticity of research data. Also mentioned was our active involvement with the W3C provenance working group. In the ensuing discussion,some alternative perspectives were raised on the mechanisms of establishing trust in research datasets.
