G-WiS: Global Collaboration of iSchools

The Global Workshop of iSchools will take place on Sunday, 22nd September as part of TPDL2013 in Valetta, Malta. The event will be held in parallel to the Doctoral Consortium of TPDL2013.

The aim of this workshop is to foster the development of a global iSchool community by inviting delegates from information schools to discuss their academic programs, and research strengths/interests so as to allow them to identify areas of possible collaboration. The morning session comprising presentations from the young researchers of the iSchool community (not restricted to the current iSchools and CiSAP members) will showcase the current state of students' research within the iSchools community. The afternoon session, to be held jointly with the Doctoral Consortium of TPDL, will comprise presentations from the iSchools community addressing various issues and challenges associated with fostering collaborations among iSchools at the regional and international level. This will follow a panel discussion that aims to promote a mutual understanding among the delegates from information schools both from the CiSAP and iSchools community.

Research infrastructures in the Humanities: Key Topics on Policies

The Research infrastructures in the Humanities seminar will take place on Wednesday, 25th September as part of TPDL2013 in Valetta, Malta. The event will be held after the close of TPDL2103.

Research Infrastructures constitute an effective response to the demands for globalisation and technological evolution that solicit today's scientific research. In fact, needs for economies of scale combined with the new technological opportunities, and the globalisation of scientific research are now pushing towards maximizing the sharing of research data also through the development of Research Infrastructures. The Seminar, starting from analysing both the problematic aspects, and the enabling factors in regarding Digital Libraries as Research Infrastructures, aims to identify policy and research priorities that can facilitate the fruition of Digital Libraries as Research Infrastructures in the Humanities.
