Frontiers is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Data Services Workshop on the 8 February 2017, to be held at the SwissTech Convention Center. The event, entitled “Data Services in an Open-Access World,” will be open to the public without any requirement for prior registration; details about the program are provided below.
The workshop will be held in the context of a week-long series of meetings of three open-science research consortia of the European Horizon 2020 framework program. Text-and-data miners, library representatives, experts on e-infrastructures, public policy makers, and university researchers will converge on Lausanne to discuss progress and plans for these consortia. Frontiers is a full partner in two of these (OpenMinTed and OpenUp ), and the third, FutureTDM, will be sending representatives to benefit from the critical mass of expertise.
With so many high-level experts already in town, Frontiers decided to invite a few external representatives of leading data-driven organisations, companies, and institutions to participate in this one-day open workshop, to discuss themes that are of importance to both the objectives of the consortia, but also that have broader interest for all attendees:
