*****************************************************************
Adding value to data - Digital Repositories in the e-Science world
Special Session at the 4th IEEE International Conference on e-Science
(http://escience2008.iu.edu/)

December 7-12, 2008, Indianapolis, USA

An Initiative of DReSNet: Digital Repositories in e-Science Network
(http://www.dresnet.net)
*****************************************************************

There is a great, untapped potential for synergies between
grid/e-science technologies and a cluster of related systems addressing
the management of digital assets in digital libraries and repositories.
The digital material generated from and used by academic and other
research is to an increasing extent being held in formal data management
systems; these systems are variously categorized as digital
repositories, libraries or archives, although the distinction between
them relates more to the sort of data that they contain and the use to
which the data is put, rather than to any major difference in
functionality. Modern repository systems allow us to move away from the
model of a stand-alone repository, library or archive, where objects are
simply deposited for subsequent access and download. Instead,
researchers are developing more sophisticated models in which these
containers of data are integrated components of a larger e-Science
research infrastructure, incorporating advanced tools and workflows, and
are being used to model complex webs of information and capture
scholarly or scientific processes in their entirety, from raw data
through to final publications. Repositories have been successfully
combined with data grid technologies, and in addition computational
grids seem to offer possible applications in digital preservation and
curation, such as automatic metadata extraction and index creation.
These systems thus could add value to the data-driven research lifecycle
in e-Science.

Session chairs are:

* Andreas Aschenbrenner - University of Goettingen
* Tobias Blanke - Centre for e-Research (King's College London)
* Mark Hedges - Centre for e-Research (King's College London)

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Digital preservation and curation in research infrastructures
* Cyberinfrastructures (e.g. data grid technologies) to support digital
preservation and curation
* Creation and maintenance of asset management for research data
* Provenance
* Federated repositories: content modelling, metadata creation and in
particular ontology mapping
* Data grid technologies and their role in digital curation and
preservation
* Metadata Extraction
* Creation and maintenance of digital libraries for research data
* Access control and security across infrastructure and asset management
systems
* Persistent identification for research data and digital objects across
e-Infrastructure
* Provenance and authenticity of digital objects in distributed
e-Infrastructure
* Information and data services in e-Science applications
* Architecture of Participation: Web 2.0 applications
* Workflow Integration
* Security

Important dates:

* Call for Papers: June 1, 2008
* Deadline for Submission of full papers: August 08, 2008
* Notification of Acceptance: September 15, 2008
* Final submission of camera-ready papers: September 29, 2008
