About Open Science Conference

The Open Science Conference 2018 is the 5th international conference organized by the Leibniz Research Alliance Science 2.0. It is dedicated to the Open Science movement and provides a unique forum for researchers, librarians, practitioners, infrastructure provider, policy makers, and other important stakeholders to discuss and exchange their ideas and experiences.

The Open Science movement focusses on research data management in general and since most recently on FAIR data principles, i.e. findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable research data. Within this context the thematic focus of this year’s conference will be on FAIR principles of research data and supporting research data infrastructures.

Invited as well as carefully selected talks, hands-on reports and a panel discussion will cover both the view of research data infrastructures and the view of the scientific communities.

Don’t miss it: the Barcamp Open Science  will be held on 12 March 2018.
