ERASYSApp Workshop on Citable Data and Reproducible Models

This workshop is for computational biologists and experimentalists who wish to learn about standards, citeable data, about how to make scientific results sustainable, available through open repositories, and about how to find and reuse other people’s works. It comprises of a mixture of lectures and hands-on sessions. We will teach you the major standards and tools that support these standards. The workshop is a joint event, consisting of two parts.

The Data citation workshop (14-15 September 2015) will be a practical one informing on all aspects of data citation. Topics include data identifiers and data Identity authorities, licences, public data stores, linking data with publications, how to cite others data, and tracking data citations to build citation profiles. Speakers will include representatives from pubmedcentral, the EMBL-EBI, publishers and data platform providers.

The Workshop on reproducible modeling results (15-16 September 2015) will teach participants the necessary steps towards encoding and publishing reproducible modeling results. Participants are encouraged to bring their own piece of model and put their hands on transforming it into a standard-compliant and publishable piece of research. Steps include the representation of model in standard formats (SBML, CellML), the generating a graphical map in SBGN, the annotation of model parts with terms from bio-ontologies, and the encoding of virtual experiments in SED-ML.

Invited speakers:

  • Jo McEntyre (EMBL-EBI, UK),
  • Rebecca Lawrence (F1000, UK),
  • Mihai Glont (EMBL-EBI, UK),
  • Jacky Snoep (Stellenbosch University, SA),
  • Paolo Manghi (OpenAIRE, CNR, Italy)

Tutors will include:

  • representatives from the COMBINE initiative,
  • representatives from FAIR-DOM,
  • modelers from multi-disciplinary projects, and
  • experts in data management.

Participation in both workshop is free. However, participants have to bear travel costs by themselves, and we reserve the right to pick participants.

Date: September 14-16, 2015
Location: Rostock Warnemünde, Germany
