Call for contributions for the workshop Knowledge Infrastructures and Digital Governance, by OPERAS

Luxembourg, 7-9 September 2020

The OPERAS (a European research infrastructure for the development of open scholarly  communication in the social sciences and humanities) community has organized a 3 days workshop at the University of Luxembourg, Belval Campus (7-9 September 2020): Knowledge Infrastructures and Digital Governance. History, Challenges, Practices.

It aims at revisiting digital knowledge infrastructures from an organisational and governance perspective, through their history, their stakes and achievements, as well as their challenges and obstacles. It aims to explore how these infrastructures frame themselves, evolve and adapt, how they stimulate participation and implement innovative models of governance (e.g. Wikipedia) as well as how they create a shared culture and common values, how they sustain knowledge commons and may contribute to a new epistemology and scientific environment.

The workshop will combine formal presentations with more participatory collective brainstorming sessions. It is open to the academic world (digital humanities, history, management and administration sciences, computer science, information and communication sciences, media studies, etc.), to the world of culture, libraries, archives, publishing, but also widely to the players in the free software movement as well as to the private sector (whether participants are confronted with new forms of governance
(such as holacracy), suppliers of software solutions related to the challenges of digital governance or involved in the implementation of new modes of governance in their organisations).

They invite proposals for the workshop. All submissions are due by May 20, 2020.

The workshop will be held in English. All proposals must be written in English.
