(formerly known as ScienceSoft) is an EMI
(European Middleware Initiative) activity investigating the feasibility of establishing an open source community dedicated to software and services for scientific research and contribute to the establishment of global knowledge networks in science.
The SciencePAD Persistent Identifiers Workshop brings together leading experts in the field of identification of digital objects like persons, software, data and publications, and those leveraging these in their domains.
This workshop looks at the current landscape of persistent identifiers, trends and issues with current implementations and policies. This event will feature presentations from Black Duck/Ohloh.net, ORCID, OpenAIREPlus, PaNData, the UK SSI and other experts. A discussion will take place on how to integrate software information in digital knowledge networks and what is required to make it happen.
