Call for papers: DaMaLOS 2024

4th Workshop on Metadata and Research (objects) Management for Linked Open Science, Hersonissos, Greece, 26th or 27th of May 2024

DaMaLOS explores requirements for research digital objects (e.g., data, software, workflows, ro-crates) and their corresponding management plans to effectively instantiate an integrated layer supporting Linked Open Science (i.e., Open Science plus Linked Open Data). DaMaLOS welcomes contributions aligned to machine-actionable DMPs and SMPs, machine/deep learning approaches around rich metadata, FAIRification, FAIR by design, FAIR tooling recognition, publication and citation for data, software and other research digital objects, and scientometrics beyond the scholarly publication (i.e., combining the different digital objects playing a role in the research cycle).


Topics of interest

Research management

  • Importance, automatization and connections across Research Data and Software (and other digital objects) Management for Linked Open Science (LOS, i.e., Open Science + Linked Open Data principles)
  • Special features/metadata required in research management plans for LOS
  • Extensions to current RDM plans to better support LOS

FAIRness and FAIRification

  • Integration/alignment between FAIR and research management plans
  • FAIRification processes, either by design or post-research-object creation
  • FAIR tooling, e.g., evaluators, extensions, governance

Open Science and Scientometrics

  • Benefits of LOS over Open Science
  • How research plans and LOS can be used to improve collection and storage of (usually volatile) data produced at, e.g., conferences
  • Integration of software, data, and other research outcomes into science-related metrics


Submission guidelines

This year DaMaLOS welcomes submissions in the form of long (up to 12 pages) and short (up to 6 pages) research papers, research objects (up to 3 pages), position papers (up to 6 pages), demos (up to 3 pages), posters (up to 3 pages). Accepted papers will go to the proceedings of the workshop and will be publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license at PUBLISSO FRL indexed by LIVIVO and DBLP. Papers should be formatted according to LNCS templates​.
