*Collaborative working using open research data to create open educational
resources for the humanities *

***Free** workshop*

This local event is part of the Higher Education Academy Open Education
Resources seminar series. The focus of this workshop will be to show the
benefits of publishing research data openly, and to show how one set of
data collected for a single discipline can be used in different ways to
create Open Educational Resources with varied content across the
humanities. It will be an interactive session which will involve
presentations, discussion and hands-on activities.

Key aims:****

   - To disseminate the ongoing work of the OpenLIVES project team, who
   will talk about their direct experience of publishing historical research
   data openly, and their collaboration in the creation of OERs using this data
   ****
   - To stimulate discussion around the issues and challenges of publishing
   research data openly, and the issues inherent in re-using the data/work of
   others****
   - To offer practical tips from experience on how to re-use data to
   create OERs on different topics and purposes****
   - To give hands-on practice using the core data with a new OER remixing
   tool****

Date: Wednesday 23 May, 2012****

Time: 10 – 4pm, including lunch and refreshments****

Venue: 65/2151 (smart classroom)****

4th Workshop on Interfaces and Architectures for Scientific Data Storage (IASDS)
http://www.mcs.anl.gov/events/workshops/iasds12
September 24 2012, held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2012 in Beijing, China
---------------------------------------
Paper Submission Deadline: May 25, 2012
---------------------------------------

High-performance computing simulations and large scientific experiments
generate tens of terabytes of data, and these data sizes grow each year.
Existing systems for storing, managing, and analyzing data are being pushed
to their limits by these applications, and new techniques are necessary to
enable efficient data processing for future simulations and experiments.

This workshop will provide a forum for engineers and scientists to present
and discuss their most recent work related to the storage, management, and
analysis of data for scientific workloads. Emphasis will be placed on
forward-looking approaches to tackle the challenges of storage at extreme
scale or to provide better abstractions for use in scientific workloads.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* parallel file systems* scientific databases
* active storage
* scientific I/O middleware
* extreme scale storage

Images and Visualisation: Imaging Technology, Truth and Trust
17 - 21 September 2012
Linköping, Sweden

Chaired by:
Brigitte Nerlich, Nottingham Uni., UK
Andrew Balmer, Manchester Uni., UK
Annamaria Carusi, Oxford Uni., UK


This conference is organised by the European Science Foundation (ESF) in partnership with Linköping University (LiU).


Both Leonardo da Vinci and John Constable claimed that painting is a science. This science has been explored extensively in traditional aesthetics and art history. Given recent advances in science and visual engineering, creating images for science, of science and for the translation (interpretation) of science has become at one and the same time commonplace, even easy, and even more scientific. The aim of this conference is to bring together experts from across the natural and social sciences, with curators, artists, producers and users of images based on advanced visual engineering.


Senior and emerging researchers and experts are invited to apply.
Grants for Young and Early Stage Researchers and experts available.
Submission Deadline: 06 June 2012

Further information can be found at: www.esf.org/conferences/12385

Please circulate this announcement among your colleagues and contacts

Alpha-ville is the London International Festival of Post-digital Culture. The festival presents a unique combination of advanced music, films, design, digital and new media art exhibitions, community events, urban interventions, workshops, labs and a Symposium on Post-digital Culture.

The 4th edition will take place in London from 3-7 October 2012.

2012 THEME: 'Unfinity'

We live in a unique moment in history, between two rapidly changing worlds. One is the world of decaying political and economic structures and the other is the world of an infinite explosion in technology and information. There are conflicting mindsets in every part of our culture: the contradiction between ubiquitous virtual presence and physical presence creating an identity crisis; the non-hierarchical, organic web structure clashing with hierarchical, non-organic real-world structures; the myth of the individual as a genius vs the power of the crowd and the collaborative practice; the passive and observant attitude set against active participation and co-creation. These opposing forces are placing us in a paradoxical state that we have named Unfinity.

Unfinity is a pull between these poles, a hybrid space. It’s timeless and uncertain. We believe that to ease the state of Unfinity in a human and meaningful way it is crucial to be creative, to experiment, to challenge and take action.

Alpha-ville 2012 invites artists, designers, thinkers, digital and non-digital people to consider, participate in, create and express what will be the next steps for building an alternative future that, we hope, will belong to the people.
