Submission process

Types of submissions

  • Full research papers (up to 10 pages): Presenting novel scientific research
  • Research objects (up to 10 pages): Describing datasets, software, workflows, training materials
  • Short research papers (up to 6 pages): Presenting research results at early stages or ongoing work
  • Position papers (up to 6 pages): Introducing positions, ideas, opinions and discussions around them
  • Demos (up to 6 pages): Presenting tools (software, workflows and so) from a practical perspective


All submissions must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference/workshop. All submissions must be in English. Proceedings of the workshop will be publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license; by submitting you agree to the use of this license for accepted papers. We welcome full research (introducing novel research contributions, max 10 pages), short research (presenting early results or work in progress, max 6 pages), position (introducing an idea and discussion around it, max 6 pages) and research objects (description of datasets, software, workflows, max 10 pages) papers formatted according to LNCS templates

Submissions will be evaluated by members of the Program Committee

Accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS).


DaMaLOS targets the following (and similar) topics:

  • Importance of Research Data Management (RDM) for LOD
  • Special features/metadata required in RDM/ROM plans for LOD
  • RDM/ROM plans elements/data that can be automated, particularly using/consuming LOD
  • Links between RDM and ROM plans and how those could be automated
  • Extensions to current RDM plans to better support Linked Open Science, e.g., emergence of ROM
  • Integration/alignment between FAIR and RDM/ROM plans and tools
  • Research and training initiatives related to RDM/ROM supporting Open Science/Linked Open Science
  • Benefits of Linked Open Science, i.e., Open Science + Linked Open Data principles, over Open Science
  • How RDM/ROM plans and LOD can be used to improve collection and storage of (usually volatile) data produced at, e.g., conferences
  • Managing FAIR digital objects in federated, open data spaces/infrastructures/ecosystems
  • Gluing together metadata + publications + data + software, (e.g., via management plans, FAIRification efforts or open aggregating spaces/ecosystems)

Submission system

All submissions should be done via EasyChair DaMaLOS-2021 workshop
