*Call for Project Presentations*

*Open Science Conference 2019 (March 19-20, 2019, Berlin, Germany)*

The Open Science Conference 201 <http://www.open-science-conference.eu>9 is
the 6th international conference of 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 the latest and
future developments in Open Science.

The Open Science movement made substantial progress and receives increasing
recognition in the research system. The achievements of the European Open
Science Cloud (EOSC) and the FAIR data movement are only two popular
examples for this development. However, establishing open science practices
as natural component of daily scientific working routines is still a great
challenge. Furthermore, the open movement is facing negative trends such as
‘predatory science’ that recently gained broader public attention.
Within this context, this call invites the research community as well as
further important stakeholders of the open science movement to submit
project presentations and other contributions covering topics including
(but not limited to):

·        Recent innovations in infrastructures, technologies, and tools
supporting open science practices
·        Best practices dealing with open science implementation and
·        Empirical studies and use cases about the application, acceptance,
establishment, and  improvements of open science practices
·        Quality assurance in an open science system, e.g., in the context
of ‘predatory science’

Please submit your English abstract which describes the main idea, the
practical relevance, and its innovative and/or scientific impact. The
abstracts may not be longer than 500 words and must be in anonymous format
(e.g. no author names) to enable blind review. All contributing authors
must be added in the metadata of the submission system.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the programme
committee and a review board. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited
to present a poster at the conference. The most outstanding contributions
can also be presented as lightning talk. The abstract, the poster, and the
lightning talk must be submitted and presented in English.
To also contribute to the open science movement, the programme committee
will publish the scientific justification for acceptance on the conference
website. All accepted posters (including the abstract) and corresponding
lightning talks will be displayed on the conference website, too.
Please send your submission as PDF document via EasyChair (requires free
EasyChair account): https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=osc2019
