This year, we again attended GO FAIR Implementation Networks Meeting (this time in Hamburg) with our international project Data Stewardship Wizard.Within its Implementation Networks, GO FAIR actively supports the implementation of FAIR principles – Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability a Reusability. The main topic was convergence in terms of finding and reusing standard solutions. The meeting was fascinating, full of exciting information on the border of information technology and work with data in the field of Life Science. From the perspective of our project, this was a great success as we have been mentioned in several presentations by speakers from various major European institutions. At the same time, we made new contacts and started cooperation with others.
At DISP Lab, at Lyon, France, there is a PhD opening on « Ensuring Interoperability for “smart” information systems”. More information below.
During the ELIXIR All Hands 2018 meeting, we (Robert & Marek) presented our progress on Data Stewardship Wizard in forms of a flash talk and a poster. The progress was quite significant, our team developed new portal solution purely with Haskell and Elm. It is running and we got a lot of positive feedback: https://dsw.fairdata.solutions

We participated in the ELIXIR-CZ Annual Conference 2017 in Třešť. We presented our work within the Interoperability platform, where we work on the international Data Stewardship Portal project and other projects such as ontology and UFO (A and B) application in the field of bone marrow donation. You can see our presentation below along with the photos from the event.
If you are interested in our ELIXIR-related work, take a loot at our offered thesis topics or contact us…
Today, 10 October 2017, precisely at 10:10 (UTC) is a key moment for OntoUML. Together with our foreign colleagues, we launched the long-awaited OntoUML.org community portal, which is not just full of useful information on Ontology of UFO and OntoUML (we teach at our faculty in subject BI-KOM, formerly BI-OMO), but it also allows to search and share opinions, experiences and projects. It represents a place where all the know-how associated with OntoUML will be concentrated, a place that has been missing for a long time. We hope it will significantly help broaden and develop language, as well as basic ontology, which development was started by Dr. Guizzardi in 2005.
We already have a lot of ideas and plans to develop and improve this portal, and we will be glad to welcome everyone who wants to work with us and join the community!
The second ELIXIR CZ annual conference will be held on 15 and 16 November 2017 and we are preparing to participate actively – to present our work, which we are doing in ELIXIR platform in cooperation with foreign colleagues. You will be able to browse the presentation on this site after the conference, now you can see the poster of the conference itself (below) and consider your participation. We are looking forward to meet you there!
Following our collaboration with the University of Antwerp (see our older post), two members of our research group, Marek Suchánek and Peter Uhnák, participated in the Normalized Systems Summer School 2017 in Antwerp. During this very exciting event they learned how to design, analyze, create and customize Normalized Systems and worked on their own projects related to the NS theory and tooling, specifically about visualization, evolvable documents and conceptual modelling. Together with Dr. Robert Pergl, prof. Jan Verelst and prof. Herwig Mannaert they also discussed further broadening and intensifying of the collaboration between CCMi & FIT CTU in Prague, the NSX spin-off and also Faculty of Applied Economics – the largest faculty of the University of Antwerp.
This opens new prospects of interesting theses topics, research projects and other challenging opportunities. We want to repeat NS Summer School with more students again the next year, as well as to improve and deepen our collaboration continually over time.

As a part of our work within the ELIXIR-CZ and in cooperation with the ELIXIR-NL we are working on Data Stewardship Portal project, which aims to streamline and improve the creation of the Data Management plans primarily for scientific projects in the field of life sciences.
We’ve presented this project at the ELIXIR All Hands 2017 in Rome, where we introduced our approach and future plans during own (4 hour) workshop. Participants had the opportunity to try to work with a preliminary version of the portal as well as edit and create the content (the Knowledge Model). During the workshop as well as a previous poster session we’ve received not only positive feedback, but also interesting suggestions and ideas.
You can take a look at the workshop agenda with presentations, photos and our poster:
