*** Registration Open *** eSciDoc Days 2011, October 26-27, Berlin *** 

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) and FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for 
Information Infrastructure cordially invite to register for the 4th eSciDoc 
Days to be held on October 26 and 27, 2011, in Berlin, Germany. 

eSciDoc, the open source eResearch environment, has been developed by the two 
organizations to provide applications and services based on a shared 
infrastructure for managing research and publication data together with the 
related metadata, relations and access rights.
The two-day conference will provide extensive information about collaborative 
eResearch environments and related challenges, e. g. the sustainable management 
of a growing amount of data throughout the research process and the provision 
of a publishing environment for research results together with research data. 
Experts with different background in scholarly information management will 
discuss the latest developments in building digital information 
infrastructures: researchers and information professionals as well as chief 
information officers and software developers. 

Keynote speaker at this year's eSciDoc Days is Simon Hodson, Programme Manager 
at JISC (UK) for Managing Research Data. Addressing challenges, opportunities 
and benefits, he will share his expertise in promoting and supporting good data 
management and data sharing in higher education and research.

The first day will give a general overview of eSciDoc and its growing community 
as well as the basic services and customized applications. On the second day 
there will be a track with three focal topic sessions: "Infrastructure 
Projects", "Research Data Management" and "eSciDoc - Getting started". These 
sessions will provide progress reports with up-to-date information and talks 
with practical relevance giving an extensive overview of eSciDoc and its fields 
of application. Two additional "hands-on" tracks with comprehensive tutorials 
will give participants with technical background the opportunity to familiarize 
themselves with installing the eSciDoc Infrastructure and developing their own 
individual eSciDoc Applications.

Of course, there is also the opportunity to discuss future developments and 
project ideas with experts from the MPDL and FIZ Karlsruhe. They are looking 
forward to meeting you at the eSciDoc Days 2011.

About the Max Planck Digital Library

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a scientific service unit within the 
Max Planck Society (MPS). The MPDL provides services to help MPS researchers 
manage their scientific information workflow. Such services comprise the 
provision of actual content and of technical solutions, but also the support to 
users by acting as a centre of competence and a community facilitator in the 
domain of scientific information management. This is achieved through close 
collaboration with the Max Planck Institutes and their libraries. The core 
activities of the MPDL lie in building up infrastructures and tools for 
publications and research data. A substantial task of the MPDL is to provide 
most effective access to scientific information and fostering the Open Access 
policy of the Max Planck Society.
