2:40 PM - 3:00 PM Presentation by Daniele Bailo, Massimo Cocco, and Federica Tanlongo

3:00 PM – 3:30 PM Q&A/Discussion

The presentation will provide a general introduction to OpenCitations, an independent and non-profit Open Science infrastructure dedicated to publishing open citation and bibliographic data through the adoption of Semantic Web technologies. In particular, it will offer some historical background on the emergence of open citations, followed by detailing the main features of OpenCitations in terms of data and services provided and ongoing collaborations with other European and international infrastructures dedicated to academic research."

Who will speak

Silvio Peroni (speaker): with a PhD in Computer Science, he is an Associate Professor at the Department of Classical Philology and Italian Studies at the University of Bologna. Since 2016, he has been the director (alongside David Shotton) of OpenCitations. His research interests include Semantic Web technologies, markup languages for complex documents, design patterns for digital documents and ontology modelling, and automated processes for document analysis and segmentation. Particularly, his recent contributions have focused on theoretical studies and technical implementations of tools to promote semantic interoperability of services and infrastructures dedicated to Open Science, empirical analysis of the nature of academic citations, bibliometrics and scientometrics studies, visualization and navigation interface studies for semantic data, and the development of ontologies to manage, integrate, and query bibliographic information.

Elena Giglia (moderator): she is responsible for the Open Access Project Unit at the University of Turin. She plays an active role in national and international working groups on Open Science and is a partner in several Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects. She was part of the Commission at the Ministry of University and Research that drafted the National Plan for Open Science, forthcoming. She was a member of the "Open Access and New Indicators" Working Group at ANVUR (2013-2014). She actively participates in national and international conferences on various aspects of Open Science, including evaluation, and engages in intensive training, information, and promotion activities.

Who should attend?

The webinar is designed for the Italian community and is aimed at researchers, research support staff, technicians, and technologists interested in learning about topics related to open science and FAIR principles.
