> From: "Corti, Louise" <corti at ESSEX.AC.UK>
> Date: 15 October 2019 at 15:45:56 CEST
> Reply-To: Research Data Management discussion list <RESEARCH-DATAMAN at JISCMAIL.AC.UK>
> Conference website: https://iassist2020.org/ <https://iassist2020.org/> 
> Conference hashtag: #IASSIST20
> The 46th annual conference of the International Association for Social Science Information Services and Technology (IASSIST <http://iassistdata.org/>) will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden from May 19 to 22, 2020.
> We welcome submissions that showcase the various ways our IASSIST community is approaching “data by design” and tackling the challenges of building and sustaining data communities, practices and tools. In the tradition of Scandinavian design, characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality, we welcome modern or ambitious approaches that your organization has been looking at more recently to keep pace with the ever-increasing amount of data, and new ways of publishing and accessing it. While a variety of submission topics are desired, we encourage you to think about if and how your topic may fit into one of the following tracks:
> Partnerships and collaborations – What is the data culture like at your organization? What infrastructure – hardware, software, people or policies – are you leveraging, and is it enough? Who do you partner and collaborate with, both within and outside your own organization, and can we learn from these networking environments?
> Data management and archiving – How can we build a community of data sharing that is equitable for all? How can we learn from each other’s approaches to demonstrating trust to lay a strong foundation? Have you designed any new and useful approaches and tools that can help in this space?
> Data access, governance and ethics – As data practitioners we adhere to key principles of protecting human rights and high ethical standards. What principles, practices and tools have you worked on around data access, especially where there may be added risk in data publishing and use.
> Data documentation and reproducibility – For a data community to persist, members need to share a common data language. What new approaches are you using to design documentation to facilitate our shared understanding? What strategies or tools have you designed that will help us respond best to the current reproducibility ‘crisis’?
> Data literacy – A robust community includes not only experienced practitioners, but also newcomers. What innovative or successful approaches are you using around the topic of data literacy and how can we, as a community, better equip new practitioners with this important skill?
> This year we also welcome suggestions for Special Interest Group and Birds of a Feather sessions, and require a short proposal and a meeting agenda/discussion points to support these. Also, panel proposals should be made up of speakers from multiple organizations to encourage diversity of debate.
> Finally, we expect to have many submissions, so we would kindly ask you to restrict submissions to one per person only.
> Submitting Proposals - DEADLINE: 6 December 2019
> We welcome submissions for papers, presentations, panels, posters, and lightning talks.
> The Call for Presentations, along with the link to the submission form, is on the conference website:
