Dear all,

OpenMinTeD is pleased to invite you to its launch event 
<cid:part1.EB94943F.7042304F at di.uoa.gr> *“Paving the way for text and 
data mining in science”, Brussels, May 24, 2018*. This event marks the 
official launch of the OpenMinTeD platform <services.openminted.eu> and 
we would like to invite you to join us for a live discussion on the way 

The agenda 
covers a broad spectrum of topics that build on a story around TDM,  
focusing on solutions, success stories, publisher and industry 
perspectives, legal issues, and discussion on the way forward.

*Why it matters:* We live in an era of exponential growth of information 
in the scientific digital world. To make sense of all this information 
encoded inside text and data and unlock the potential of turning 
information into knowledge, text and Data Mining (TDM) has emerged as 
powerful and valuable assistant. Legal issues and emerging regulations 
influence the full potential of open science and we need to address this 
in an effective way.

*What is it about:* It is about unleashing the power of open access and 
open science. OpenMinTeD <www.openminted.eu> (a H2020 project) has paved 
the way for TDM in science by establishing a cloud-based TDM 
infrastructure for scientific literature. It has brought together 
publishers and repositories, TDM software providers, domain discipline 
researchers and the industrial world through the use of a collaborative 
platform that allows sharing and re-using of content, TDM services and 
cloud resources.

*Who is it for?* Whether you are a publisher or repository manager, a 
TDM software provider or developer, researcher, SME, company, funder or 
government employee, your should join and participate in this open 

  * /Content Providers of Scientific/Scholarly Works:/ Publishers that
    want to maximize the impact of the publications, Library Managers
    that want to foster the TDM capabilities of their content,
    Repository Managers that want to share their content
  * /Software Providers of TDM applications and tools:/ Developers, NLP
    researchers, and TDM enthusiasts that seek a platform to expose
    their work
  * /Researchers:/ Users of TDM applications, searching for new tools
    and applications to enhance their research, improve efficiency and
    research outcomes
  * /SMEs, Industry:/ Commercial organizations interested in using TDM
    to build new innovations, improve their R&D and achieve a
    competitive advantage

Please register here 
join us.

*OpenMinTeD* (www.openminted.eu) is an H2020 project that has set out to 
boost the use of Text and Data Mining (TDM) in Open Science, by bringing 
together in a cloud-based infrastructure a significant number of high 
quality state of the art TDM tools and applications and the biggest 
dataset of Open Access scientific and scholarly content ready to be 
mined, linked to OpenAIRE and CORE. Its vision of creating an open and 
secure e-infrastructure where researchers and TDM experts can share 
their resources and collaboratively create, discover, share and re-use 
new knowledge mined from text-based content sources has been accomplished.

OpenMinted functionalities include:

  * A catalogue of ready-to-run TDM applications
  * A catalogue of OA scholarly and scientific publications ready to be
    mined (currently linked to OpenAIRE and CORE)
  * A corpus builder that allows end-users to select publications based
    on their criteria in order to build a corpus that best fits their
    research question
  * A catalogue of basic processing components and ancillary knowledge
    resources (models, grammars, ontologies, lexica, terminologies,
    etc.) that can be combined together to create new TDM applications
  * An embedded workflow editor (Galaxy) that makes it easy for TDM
    developers to mix-and-match the above in order to build new applications
  * Execution of TDM applications on scholarly works on the cloud (EOSC)
  * Viewing of the outputs of the TDM operations
  * Legal guidance regarding the compatibility of licenses and terms of
    use of TDM tools, applications and content
  * Guidelines for achieving interoperability among TDM tools,
    applications, knowledge resources and content according to the
    OpenMinTeD specifications
