Submission process

This year DaMaLOS welcomes submissions in the form of long (up to 12 pages) and short (up to 6 pages) research papers, research objects (up to 3 pages), position papers (up to 6 pages), demos (up to 3 pages), posters (up to 3 pages).

Accepted papers will go to the proceedings of the workshop and will be publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license at PUBLISSO FRL indexed by LIVIVO and DBLP. PUBLISSO mints DOIs and provides a fast publication process that will allow us to have the proceedings ready right after the conference, including slides. Accepted workshop papers aligned with Life Sciences or domain-agnostic will be later invited to submit an extended and improved version to the Journal of Biomedical Semantics (JBMS).

Types of submissions

  • Full research papers (up to 12 pages): Presenting novel scientific research
  • Short research papers (up to 6 pages): Presenting research results at early stages
  • Position papers (up to 6 pages): Introducing positions, ideas, opinions and discussions around a topic
  • Research objects (up to 3 pages): Describing datasets, software, workflows, training materials together with their metadata
  • Demos (up to 3 pages): Presenting tools (software, workflows and so) from a practical perspective
  • Posters (up to 3 pages): Presenting works in a graphical display


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. Papers should be formatted according to LNCS templates

Submission system

All workshop submissions should be done via EasyChair DaMaLOS-2024 workshop


DaMaLOS targets the following (and similar) topics:

  • Research management
    • Importance, automatization and connections across Research Data and Software (and other digital objects) Management for Linked Open Science (LOS, i.e., Open Science + Linked Open Data principles)
    • Special features/metadata required in research management plans for LOS
    • Extensions to current RDM plans to better support LOS
  • FAIRness and FAIRification
    • Integration/alignment between FAIR and research management plans
    • FAIRification processes, either by design or post-research-object creation
    • FAIR tooling, e.g., evaluators, extensions, governance
  • Open Science and Scientometrics
    • Benefits of LOS over Open Science
    • How research plans and LOS can be used to improve collection and storage of (usually volatile) data produced at, e.g., conferences
    • Integration of software, data, and other research outcomes into science-related metrics
