SSHOC Webinar – DARIAH Community Requirements for a Dataverse Repository, 28 september 11:00-12:30 am (Amsterdam)

SSHOC Webinar – DARIAH Community Requirements for a Dataverse Repository, 28 september 11:00-12:30 am (Amsterdam)

SSHOC is developing a data repository service for SSH institutions. The new service is built upon the Dataverse software and will be adjusted to the needs of the European research infrastructures.

Dataverse is a community-driven open source software platform which enables integrations with other data services such as DataCite or ROpenScience. Its modular design principle uses API’s to allow for distributed file storage and support the addition of further microservices.

We invite interested researchers and institutes from across the SSH community to attend the webinar and share your ideas and requirements.

  • Would your research institute like to use the SSHOC Dataverse, once it’s available?
  • Would you as an individual researcher like to use Dataverse?
  • What are your requirements?
  • How much localisation do you need?
  • Would you like to use a central service in the cloud or an installation in your institutional environment?

Webinar «The Emerging New Paradigm in Conservation Education and the Power of Place: is there replacement for site experience?», 11st September 14:00 (London time)

ICOMOS CIF-ICOMOS Turkey organizes the webinar «The Emerging New Paradigm in Conservation and Education and the Power of Place: is there replacement for site experience?»

Possibilities for a future education system in conservation, collaboration of institutes at international level and new expansions for cultural heritage perception. Managing remote working practice is a challenge facing us all and even without the COVID-19 crisis, we need to look at the benefits and options of digital learning. As we know, being in a historic building or at a significant site is a fundamentally different experience from seeing pictures on a screen, what can we do about it?
Moderator: Nurdan Kuban, Kocaeli University (ICOMOS-Turkey/ICOMOS-CIF)

Speakers:
Paul McMahon, ICOMOS-Ireland and COTAC Trustee (ICOMOS-CIF/IRELAND)
Maurice Murphy , CIPA (maurice.murphy@tudublin.ie )

Webinar: The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS), 24 jun 2020 04:00 PM (GMT+1 London)

The Icon Book & Paper Group Committee  are pleased to be able to bring you a series of live streamed talks while many people are required to stay at home during in these unprecedented times.

The next talk will be Matija Strlic giving their talk The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS)

Overview
Much could be gained from research that is openly shared, as well as from research that is collaboratively developed. The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS) will specifically promote the sharing of facilities where research is carried out – whether scientific laboratories, conservation workshops or art history research departments. Namely, investments into unique research facilities and expertise are much better justifiable if access to such facilities is open to external researchers. Many such facilities already exist and operate nationally and in order to reduce the risk of duplication, E-RIHS will be developed into a distributed infrastructure. This way, excellent facilities will pool some of their operational time to enable research to be carried out internationally and collaboratively, with lean central management. E-RIHS, including its UK node, E-RIHS.UK, is still actively developing and collaboration is actively promoted across the spectrum of heritage research.

About the speaker
Matija Strlic is Professor of Heritage Science at University College London and Professor of Analytical Chemistry at University of Ljubljana. His main research interests are the development of heritage science infrastructure, including instrumentation and methodology, as well as modelling of heritage materials, environments, values and decision making. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and of the International Institute for Conservation and was Chair of the ICON Heritage Science Committee from 2015-2018.

CSIC Interdisciplinary Platform Open Heritage, research and Society is member of Spanish node in E-RIHS.
