CFP – Data, Society, and Open Science Workshop III: challenges for data management and data-based research

As part of the Making Dark Data FAIR Project, generously supported by the EOSC secretariat, here at TU Delft, we are inviting abstracts for our upcoming conference in the Data, Society and Open Science three-part-series, to be held entirely online on the 30th of March 2021.

The Making Dark Data FAIR project aims to provide an analysis of why data goes “dark” – becomes non-reusable -- in the first place, to develop concrete strategies for how we might best enact the FAIR principles in an effort to reduce dark data, and finally to interrogate the FAIR principles themselves, in an effort to ensure they’re fulfilling the role intended for them (i.e., reducing dark data).

We encourage submissions from as broad a range of topics as possible. Suitable areas of focus include (but are not limited to): philosophy of technology, philosophy of data, ethics of technology, ethics and science, data management, and library studies.

We ask that you submit a 500-word abstract to <>  by 15th February 2021. Please include your name, contact information, and institutional affiliation in the body of the email.
Accepted speakers should prepare a 20-minute talk, which will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A.
