The 46th annual conference of the International Association for
Social Science Information Services and Technology (IASSIST) will be held
in Gothenburg, Sweden from May 19 to 22, 2020.

Data by Design: Building a Sustainable Data Culture 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 collaborationsWhat 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 archivingHow 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 ethicsAs 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 reproducibilityFor 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 literacyA 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
