Ontological Annotation of Datasets: "1st NanoCommons Hackathon"
9 October 2018
Athens, GreeceOntological Annotation of Datasets: "1st NanoCommons Hackathon" https://www.nanocommons.eu/1st-nanocommons-hackathon-ontological-annotations-of-datasets/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/ontological-annotation-of-datasets The participants will work using their own or mock datasets and search through established ontologies (e.g. eNanoMapper Ontology) for ontological annotations. The participants will also learn how to prepare electronic files (e.g. JSON) containing the raw data and the ontological metadata. 2018-10-09 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-09 00:00:00 UTC Athens, Greece Athens Greece Ontology and terminology   Biologists workshops_and_courses  nanotoxicologyresearch dataontologyontologies, enanomapper
Workshop on Research Objects (RO2018)
29 October 2018
Amsterdam, NetherlandsWorkshop on Research Objects (RO2018) http://www.researchobject.org/ro2018/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/workshop-on-research-objects-ro2018 In this workshop we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects and publishing of research data. **Deadlines**: * 2018-07-01 Abstracts due * 2018-07-15 Research articles and software/data articles due A travel bursary is available for accepted speakers, sponsored by [BioExcel](http://bioexcel.eu) (H2020-675728) ## Research Objects Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly in recent years, with an increasing focus on **Open Research**, [FAIR](https://doi.org/10.1038/sdata.2016.18)data sharing and community-developed open source methods. A question remains on how to publish, archive and explore digital research outputs. A number of initiatives have begun to explore how to package and describe research outputs, data, methods, workflows, provenance and structured metadata, reusing existing Web standards and formats. Such efforts aim to address the challenges of structuring multi-part research outcomes with their context, handling distributed and living content and porting and safely exchange what we collectively can call **Research Objects** between platforms and between researchers. In the workshop **RO2018**, part of [IEEE eScience 2018](https://www.escience2018.com) in Amsterdam, we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects and publishing of research data with peer-reviewed presentations, invited talks, short demos, lightning talks and break-out sessions to further build relationships across scientific domains and RO practitioners. ## Call for Papers RO2018 welcomes submissions of academic abstracts (1-2 pages), data/software articles (3-6 pages) and short research articles (4-8 pages) on cross-cutting case studies or specific research on topics including, but not limited to: FAIR metrics; platforms, infrastructure and tools; lifecycles; access control and secure exchange; examples of exploitation and application; executable containers; metadata, packaging and formats; credit, attribution and peer review; dealing with scale and distribution; driving adoption within current scholarly communications and alignments with community efforts; and domain-specific and cross-domain Research Objects.

OpenRiskNet/NanoCommons ontology meeting
13 - 14 December 2018
Brussels, BelgiumOpenRiskNet/NanoCommons ontology meeting https://openrisknet.org/events/45/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/openrisknet-nanocommons-ontology-meeting The goal of this meeting is to get a picture of the ongoing ontology activities in the toxicology area, harmonize these efforts and the developed ontologies therein, and extend the existing toxicology ontology to support OpenRiskNet and NanoCommons tasks. Part of this will be the ontological annotation of OpenRiskNet Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as used on their cloud. Other goals include extension of the ontology with missing terms (if any), potentially write up guidance documents, and annotation of data sets (possible via OpenRiskNet data APIs). 2018-12-13 13:00:00 UTC 2018-12-14 14:00:00 UTC University of Birmingham office in Brussels, Brussels, Belgium University of Birmingham office in Brussels Brussels Belgium Ontology and terminology Toxicology  NanoCommonsOpenRiskNetH2020  workshops_and_courses  risk assessmentnanosafetydata annotationservice descriptions
How to describe OpenRiskNet services and their functionality by semantic annotation
13 May 2019How to describe OpenRiskNet services and their functionality by semantic annotation https://openrisknet.org/events/64/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/how-to-describe-openrisknet-services-and-their-functionality-by-semantic-annotation Providing the data and software services within OpenRiskNet virtual environment and make the functionality available via application programming interfaces (APIs) already allows for the development of advanced workflows providing solutions to complex risk assessment tasks (demonstrated in the case studies webinars). However, identification and selection of the most appropriate service, understanding their functionality and format the input and output still need manual investigation and programming/scripting skills. To be able to automate these tasks, OpenRiskNet is exploring semantic annotation on different levels. After a short introduction to ontologies applicable to service annotation, we will first demonstrate high-level annotation, which gives the information for the OpenRiskNet registry service to index the service and to make it findable for users and gives basic categorisation like dataset, algorithm and model. Then we will show low level annotation, which will be used for dataset and input/output harmonisation so that the user but more important other services can understand the information provided/required and how to access it. Finally, first approaches to define the middle layer providing metadata describing the service in more detail like available toxicity domains, available endpoint as well as gene/pathway/AOP associations will be shown. 2019-05-13 16:00:00 UTC 2019-05-13 17:00:00 UTC OpenRiskNet Ontology and terminology    workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served
