Carole GobleFAIR Computational Workflows: the what, why, how and who

Carole Goble is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Manchester, UK where leads a team of Researchers, Research Software Engineers and Data Stewards. She has spent 25 years working in e-Science on computational workflows, reproducible science, open sharing, and knowledge and metadata management in a range of disciplines. She has led numerous e-Infrastructure projects including: Taverna, one of the first open source computational workflow management systems and myExperiment.org, the first system agnostic web-based sharing platform for workflows and their related data. She was the scientific lead of the WF4ever project which pioneered the notion of workflows as preservable and reproducible Research Objects. She currently co-leads the WorkflowHub.eu registry for workflows, the RO-Crate community initiative for packaging, exchanging and publishing workflows as Research Objects and serves on the Advisory Board of the Common Workflow Language. These are key components of the EOSC-Life Cluster Workflow Collaboratory (made up of 13 European Research Infrastructures in Biomedical Science) and a resource of the EU COVID data portal. The tools of the Collaboratory are used by other projects from natural history collection digitisation to climate change modelling. Carole also leads the pan-institutional FAIRDOM Consortium which manages FAIR data for systems biology and biomedical projects and directs the digital infrastructure for the IBISBA Research Infrastructure for Industrial Biotechnology. She co-leads the interoperability platform for ELIXIR, the EU Research Infrastructure for Life Sciences and is Head of Node of ELIXIR-UK. Carole is a co-founder of the UK’s Software Sustainability Institute and cares about quality research software and reproducibility by building platforms people actually use with teams of people distributed across projects, institutions and countries.

Julia KasmireDiscovering the arrow of time in machine learning

Dr. Julia Kasmire is a Research Fellow with the Cathie Marsh Institute at the University of Manchester and the UK Data Service working on the application of computational and empirical methods within social science research. She approaches this as an interesting combination of thinking like a computer (essential for data sciences) and thinking like a human (essential for social sciences) in the context of complex adaptive systems. Specifically, her research focuses on 1) automated and computational methods to collect, process, check and store data that may be large in volume, dynamic and/or complex in nature, 2) novel methods to analyse data or approach social science research questions, including simulation, virtual reality, AI and serious gaming, and 3) innovative ways to visualise research results and to better communicate outcomes and insights in ways that are impactful, memorable and useful. These interests follow on from her research background in linguistics, complex adaptive systems, and transition management within evolving complex socio-technical industries. On a personal note, she is deeply committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity and is currently dabbling with stand-up comedy as a form of science communication.

Tommi SuominenLinking SSH research publications, datasets and infrastructures in Research.fi

Part sustainability scientist, part information system designer - Tommi Suominen is an interdisciplinary expert focusing on the software solution development for various research needs, with working experience from both science and industry.
In his present role as an information architect at CSC, he focuses on information modelling for IT services in research and education, the recently launched research.fi in particular. His current topical interests lie in the utilization linked data and semantic interoperability as a means of achieving international integration of services and data. Persistent identifiers have risen in relevance as a means of interconnecting related data objects.
Before starting at CSC, Tommi worked for 13 years at an international research organization (EFI) refining his skills in software solution design and development, team leadership, project management, EU research funding acquisition and scientific writing. While at EFI he was the lead developer of the sustainability impact assessment methodology ToSIA ( http://tosia.efi.int/ ), which sprouted a PhD hobby project at University of Eastern Finland, gradually nearing its completion. The basics of his practical knowhow were accrued at Nokia and TietoEnator and the theoretical background through a MSc in Computer Science from the University of Helsinki.

Botond SzemesThe History of the Hungarian Novel. Analyzing the Average Sentence Length and Sentence Structure over two decades.

The literary and cultural studies I have conceived combines the application of different methods and modes of reading. This means, on the one hand, the close reading and the interpretion of the texts and, on the other hand, the usage of the procedures and results of the digital humanities. Knowledge and skills from the traditional humanities are thus linked to methods of large-scale data processing and data visualization – I believe this can be a fruitful relationship from which both areas can benefit greatly. As a PhD student on Literary and Cultural Studies, a member of the Hungarian Stylistic Research Group and a member of some projects in the Centre for Digital Humanties Budapest, I try to develop this kind of combination in the field of literary history and in the interpretation of texts.

This means, on the one hand, the close reading and the interpretion of the texts and, on the other hand, the usage of the procedures and results of the digital humanities. Knowledge and skills from the traditional humanities are thus linked to methods of large-scale data processing and data visualization – I believe this can be a fruitful relationship from which both areas can benefit greatly. As a PhD student on Literary and Cultural Studies, a member of the Hungarian Stylistic Research Group and a member of some projects in the Centre for Digital Humanties Budapest, I try to develop this kind of combination in the field of literary history and in the interpretation of texts.
