ECDF and Elsevier announce a new series of panel discussions for the research community -

Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF), the center for digitalization research based in Berlin, and Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, will co-host an innovative series of panel discussions – ‘ECDF and Elsevier Conversations on Science in the Digital Future’.

The ‘Conversations on Science in the Digital Future’ initiative aims to promote an open dialogue about data usage in the research sector. It is hoped that these discussions will lead to greater understanding and collaboration between the research community, publishers, and societies.

Over the next several months, the series will take deep dives into current and impactful topics, covering data usage in science, data privacy, vulnerable population and assessment data, synthetic data, and artificial intelligence and ethics in scholarly publishing. The hybrid events will take place at the ECDF in Berlin and online.

The initiative will start on November 22, 2022, with the first event on ‘Data Privacy in the Digital Era’. Dr. Max von Grafenstein, Professor for Digital Self-Determination at ECDF and Universität der Künste Berlin, Dr. IJsbrand Jan Aalbersberg, SVP of Research Integrity at Elsevier, and Dr. Wolfram Horstmann, Director of the SUB Göttingen Library and Head of the DFG Libraries Committee, will discuss topics such as usage tracking, its purposes and limitations, and what governance is needed to create transparency and foster trust.

To register for the first-panel discussion, 'Data Privacy in the Digital Era' on November 22, 2022, at 3 pm CET, please email your full name, job title, and organization to
