  • Case studies of e-Research projects, programmes, and policies;
  • Policy analyses of key issues, ranging from IPR to privacy;
  • Ethical and legal analyses of innovations in e-Research, focusing on risks as well as approaches to resolving ethical dilemmas;
  • Research on e-collaboration, including new platforms for scientific collaboration, such as those using social networking sites;
  • Survey research and in-depth interviews focused on the attitudes and practices of researchers;
  • Usability of e-Research tools, and related issues of human-computer interaction;
  • Showcasing new methods, practices, and tools afforded by new ICTs;
  • Research on the social shaping and impact of e-Research;
  • Take-up, diffusion and sustainability of e-Research infrastructures;
  • Technical advances of relevance to any stage of research, from agenda-setting and budgeting to data collection, analysis, dissemination and evaluation of research;
  • Social and technical perspectives on innovations in metadata, the development of ontologies, and the semantic Web;
  • Overviews and comparisons of particular schools of research, including Web Science, e-Social Science, e-Research, and e-Infrastructure communities.

Individuals may submit abstracts, or drafts of full papers; workshop or panel proposals; and demonstration projects, which can be showcased at the conference. Top papers presented at the conference will have an opportunity to be prioritized for review by the journal Information, Communication & Society (iCS).

Submissions are due by 15 March 2008. Authors will be informed of the programme committee’s decision by 15 April 2008.

The Oxford e-Research Conference 08 seeks to stimulate and inform multi-disciplinary research on the development, use and implications of information and communication technologies in shaping research across the disciplines. It will bring together research from key e-Research projects from around the world examining the role of the Internet, Web and the Grid in research. The conference seeks to facilitate scholarly communication and publication on this topic, and help foster a broader public understanding of the significance of this area to the sciences and humanities as well as to the public at large.
