Thank you...
... to all the contributors and experts who have reviewed abstracts.
The review phase could be brought to a conclusion by your help. Notifications to the choosen contributors will be send until the end of september.

Most abstracts can be found at the abstracts page ↗ as a sneak preview of what you may expect at the conference.

Thank you too!
To all those who have handed in abstracts in the first place!
Conference Topics
The aim of the conference is to advance and unify international (research) data management and to foster exchange. We will discuss open issues and future challenges on topics such as terminologies, metadata, ontologies, repositories and many more. Likewise, opportunities for networking and exchange with the research community will be provided. Everyone is invited to contribute!
FAIR engineering science:
applying principles to practice
RDM tools and services:
usability and automation
Open science: impact and
visibility of engineering insights
Data literacy in
engineering education
Hands on RDM:
A full two day programme of workshops and demonstrations additionally to the presentations!
Whether researchers, teachers or industry representatives - all those interested in (research) data management are welcome. Through presentations of research results, informative workshops and tutorials, as well as case studies, we would like to discuss how data management can be implemented in engineering theory and practice.
Conference Proceedings: ing.grid's special issue
To make the contributions accessible to a broader audience, the contributors will have the chance to hand in additional papers, that will be peer-reviewed within ing.grid ↗ and later be published within the conference special issue of ing.grid.
ing.grid is firmly rooted in the engineering sciences and is committed to the principles of Open Data, Open Access and Open Review. It welcomes contributions from all engineering subject areas. Moreover, the journal recognizes connections and common practices across all subdisciplines of the engineering community and encourages active exchange of experiences.

The open peer review policy of ing.grid offers collaboration with the reviewing not only reserved for the assigned referees: The community can also take part in the discussion before the publishing of the article. After the article is accepted, the review discussion comments are made available and marked with a DOI to ensure transparency of the review process.

The journal aims to share the results of scientific work conducted with society. To publish at ing.grid, authors should choose a CC-BY licence for their work. This licence allows the journal and its publications to hold on to the principles of open science.
NFDI4Ing Awards 2022

RDM solutions with impact on science in 2022!

NFDI4Ing_Award_2022

In the course of the NFDI4Ing Conference 2022 two awards for RDM solutions will be given: We will honour the best RDM tool as well as the best conference contribution! Each award is endowed with 500€.

NFDI4Ing Award 2022 for the best RDM Solution

Best (software) solution for RDM
on the NFDI4Ing conference 2022

Endowment: 500€

Winner:
Rory Macneil
Research Space, Edinburgh, Scotland

with his contribution:

RSpace: An Electronic Lab Noteook designed to enhance FAIR workflows and FAIRification of research data
ID: 826  

Conditions apply: Nominated and adwarded can be all RDM solutions that were created outside NFDI4Ing. With respect to the thematical broadness of RDM, a tool and its related conference contribution cannot win both awards at the same time. Updates on the nomination and selection process will follow. 

NFDI4Ing Award 2022 for the best Conference Contribution

Best Contribution
on the NFDI4Ing conference 2022

Endowment: 500€

Winner:
Wendy (Pengyin) Shan
Digital Initiatives, University of Alberta Library, Canada

with her contribution:

Prepare RDM for Decentralized and Blockchain Based Data Source

ID: 852  

Conditions apply: Nominated and adwarded can be all conference contributions. With respect to the thematical broadness of RDM, a tool and its related conference contribution cannot win both awards at the same time. Updates on the nomination and selection process will follow. 

Click here to get to know the review process and award criteria The review process is divided into multiple steps. First, all contributors have handed in an abstract of their contribution, most of which can be found at the abstracts page ↗ as a sneak preview of what you may expect at the conference. Abstracts that did not match the requierements e.g. in terms of length or language have been sorted out beforehand.

Following to that, abstracts have been reviewed three times:
  1. Blind peer review by another contributor who is not affiliated or linked to the contribution in any other way
  2. A second blind peer review, that follows the same standards
  3. A blind expert review by the NFDI4Ing, which also ensures that the reviewer has no affiliation to the reviewed abstract
As a result of the review three nominees for each award are declared.
Note: As there are two contributions which qualify for both awards in this years conference, there will be four nominees in each category to exclude the case of only two possible winners for one award if a a contribution nominated for both awards wins an award.

On the conference a jury consisting of members of the NFDI4Ing Community Clusters (one from each Cluster) will judge the nominees contributions at the conference (not their abstracts) independently from their review outcome. However, one contribution is not eligible to win both awards, no matter the jury outcome!

At the end of the conference, the winners are declared.

NFDI4Ing community survey
NFDI4Ing is running a community survey ↗ on the state of research data management (RDM) in the engineering sciences. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. The survey can be found at https://nfdi4ing.de/survey↗

One of the goals of the survey is to tailor the consortium’s services precisely to the needs of engineers. To obtain a detailed picture of the state of RDM in the individual engineering disciplines, we hope for numerous participants from all fields of engineering.
Preliminary Agenda
