Call for Papers: Special Issue on Digital Infrastructures for Cultural Heritage

The ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage call for papers on Digital Infrastructures for Cultural Heritage has a new deadline of April 30, 2016. As the intended audience includes both heritage researchers and professionals, and computer and information scientists, to be accepted papers will not only need to present innovative computer science content but also refer to a clear Cultural Heritage context where they have been, or are going to be, tested and evaluated. They should address a comprehensive framework – the infrastructure – rather than an individual application, unless the latter is the backbone of an infrastructure.

Science Gateways Survey raw data now available

Science gateways survey

Through a large-scale survey, we measured the extent and characteristics of the gateway community (reliance on gateways, nature of existing resources) to understand useful services and support for builders and users. We administered an online survey to nearly 29,000 principal investigators, senior administrators, and people with gateway affiliations. Nearly 5,000 individuals responded. In addition to the survey questions and a paper based on the data, the raw data (anonymized) is now available in SPSS, CSV, and Excel format.
