Second Workshop on "Linking and Contextualizing Publications and Datasets"
On ...Growing a Global Data Publishing Culture...

City University of London
London, UK, September 12th, 2014
Web site: http://lcpd2014.research-infrastructures.eu/
E-mail: lcpd2014 at isti.cnr.it

In conjunction with Digital Libraries 2014 (http://www.dl2014.org)
ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2014)
International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries
(TPDL 2014)

###### Workshop Objectives ######

The goal of this workshop is to provide researchers and practitioners in
the fields of Digital Libraries, e-Science, and e-Research, with a forum
where they can constructively explore foundational, organizational and
systemic challenges in contexts having publishing, interlinking,
preservation, discovery, access, and reuse of publications and datasets
as focal points. It expects to contribute to the actual picture of the
state of the art approaches and solutions that researchers and
practitioners active in these fields have investigated and realized.
Inspired by the indications resulting from the plenary discussion of the
first edition of the workshop (TPDL 2013, Malta), special attention this
year will be drawn towards research activities aimed at consolidating
and building a common understanding of Òdata publishingÓ.

###### Workshop topics ######

The workshop welcomes submissions reporting on theoretical, systemic,
and foundational work targeting popular topics of linking and
contextualizing datasets and publications. The topics of this workshop
are of interest to, but not limited to, the following research avenues:

[Growing a Global Data Publishing Culture]
- Data papers and dataset peer-review: discipline specific or
general-purpose approaches, data journals ideas, etc
- Data publishing workflows: publishing workflows, data publishing
policies, validation steps
- Data citation: dataset metadata, dataset granularity, citation for
rewards, citation for re-use, interlinking with publications.
- Dataset contextualization: data models, tools, semantic enrichment for
better discovery, re-use and quality evaluation.

[General topics]
- Metadata formats for publications and datasets: interlinking or
contextualizing research outputs.
- Metadata access services: exporting/discovering metadata to facilitate
interlinking or contextualizing research outputs.
- Data models expressing relationships between publications, datasets
and other information apt for re-use, contextualization, etc.
- Aggregation services: robust and scalable collection, integration,
storage, interlinking, and visualization of heterogeneous objects and
metadata from publication, dataset, and contextual content data sources
- Linking and contextualization services: processing/mining interlinked
objects and metadata relative for enrichment, disambiguation, annotation
- Future publication models and services: novel concepts and management
of Òenhanced publicationsÓ, Òresearch objectsÓ, Òexecutable papersÓ.

###### Important Dates ######

Research paper submission: June 30th, 2014 - 23:59 CET
Notification of acceptance: July 21st, 2014
Camera ready version: August 15th, 2014

###### Paper Submission ######

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers.
Submitted manuscripts will have to be limited to 8-12 pages, following
the guidelines for the LNCS format provided by Springer
Preferred formats are PDF or Microsoft Word. Submission is on line at:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lcpd2014 (EasyChair on-line
system: you need to register an account to submit).

Papers submitted to the workshop will undergo a single-blind peer-review
process by Program Committee members. To be published on the
proceedings, accepted contributions should be revised according to the
reviews and at least one author is required to register and present the
paper at the workshop.

Proceedings, including abstracts from the invited speakers and the
revised papers, will become a publication (publisher to be decided).
