From Matthias Razum, Head ePublishing and eScience, FIZ Karlsruhe
Karlsruhe, Germany Development & Applied ResearchFIZ Karlsruhe and the Max Planck Digital Library cordially invite you to participate in the eSciDoc Days 2010 to be held on Tuesday, November 16, and Wednesday, November 17, 2010, hosted by the Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The eSciDoc Days are targeted at both existing eSciDoc users and people interested in eResearch environments, publication infrastructure, research data management and scholarly collaboration.
The two day conference will provide extensive information about eSciDoc, the open source eResearch environment. Keynote speakers will give an overview of the current eResearch developments. Presentations held by eSciDoc team members and eSciDoc users will demonstrate the existing eSciDoc Applications and the underlying eSciDoc Infrastructure as well as its future directions.
In parallel tracks, we offer a whole day of hands-on tutorials for eSciDoc newcomers as well as experienced developers who are interested in creating their own applications based on the eSciDoc Infrastructure, or who intend to re-purpose their existing eSciDoc Applications.
Program and speakers will be announced soon.
More information about eSciDoc is available at www.escidoc.org

About the Max Planck Digital Library
The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) is a scientific service unit within the Max Planck Society (MPS), established in January 2007. The MPDL provides services to help MPS researchers manage their scientific information workflow. Such services comprise the provision of actual content and of technical solutions, but also the support to users by acting as a centre of competence and a community facilitator in the domain of scientific information management. This is achieved through close collaboration with the Max Planck Institutes and their libraries. The core activities of the MPDL lie in building up infrastructures and tools for publications and research data. A substantial task of the MPDL is to provide most effective access to scientific information and fostering the Open Access policy of the Max Planck Society.
