The Organizing Committee invites the community to submit proposals to the 1st International Symposium on Qualitative Research and 5th Ibero-American Congress on Qualitative Researchto be held in Porto (Portugal), on days 12, 13 and 14 July 2016. The city of Oporto was chosen as the “Best European Destination 2014“, an award given annually by the “European Consumers Choice,” an independent, non-profit organization. Authors may submit proposals for presentation of papers that meet the goals and themes of the Congress, including original scientific articles addressing revisions to the state of the art research and new perspectives, solutions and / or applications to real problems, empirical and / or evaluation, among others.

Aplication Fields of ISQR:

  1. Qualitative Research in Health (emphasis on the processes of research in the fields of Medicine, Nursing, Geriatrics, Gerontology, Psychology, etc.).
  2. Qualitative Research in Education (emphasis on the processes of research in various areas of Higher Education, Basic Education, Assessment, Curriculum, Teaching, Teaching Science, Languages, History, Technology, etc.).

Ομιλία από τον καθηγητή Andrea Rauber – Παρασκευή 28/11, ώρα 10:00 π.μ. Σπουδαστήριο ΣΔΟ

Την Παρασκευή 28/11 και ώρα 10:00 π.μ. στο Σπουδαστήριο ΣΔΟ, θα πραγματοποιηθεί ομιλία από τον καθηγητή του Πανεπιστημίου της Βιέννης,  Andrea Rauber με θέμα:

Preservation Challenges in eScience:
From Process Management Plans via Process Capture to
Validating Process Re-execution

Andreas Rauber
Vienna University of Technology
Vienna, Austria


eScience offers huge potential of speeding up scientific discovery, being able to flexibly re-use, combine and build on top of results without geographical or time limitations and across discipline boundaries. Yet, in order to reap the benefits promised by eScience, we must be able to actually perform these activities, i.e. having the data, processing components available for re-deployment. This proves challenging as procedures currently in place in research institutions frequently are not set up to meet these goals.

In this talk, we will review the principles of data management plans, now forming part of all major project funding guidelines, as an accepted and established first step in this direction. We will review their strengths and weaknesses and outline ways to address them. Specifically, we will focus on moving beyond data, addressing the capture and description of entire research processes, ways to document and prepare them for archival. We will review how processes and their context can be described, how specific instances can be captured even if being based upon massive amounts of data, and how these processes can be validated for correctness upon re-execution.


Andreas Rauber is Associate Professor at the Department of Software Technology and Interactive Systems (ifs) at the Vienna University of Technology (TU-Wien). He furthermore is president of AARIT, the Austrian Association for Research in IT and a Key Researcher at Secure Business Austria (SBA-Research). He received his MSc and PhD in Computer Science from the Vienna University of Technology in 1997 and 2000, respectively. In 2001 he joined the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) in Pisa as an ERCIM Research Fellow, followed by an ERCIM Research position at the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), at Rocquencourt, France, in 2002.

Τίτλος ομιλίας: The Web: Wisdom of Crowds or Wisdom of a Few?


The Web continues to grow and evolve very fast, changing our daily
lives. This activity represents the collaborative work of the millions
of institutions and people that contribute content to the Web as well as
more than two billion people that use it. In this ocean of hyperlinked
data there is explicit and implicit information and knowledge. But how
is the Web? What are the activities of people? How
content is generated? Web data mining is the main approach to answer
these questions. Web data comes in three main flavors: content (text,
images, etc.), structure (hyperlinks) and usage (navigation, queries,
etc.), implying different techniques such as text, graph or log mining.
Each case reflects the wisdom of some group of people that can be used
to make the Web better. For example, user generated tags in Web 2.0
sites. In this presentation we explore the wisdom of crowds in relation
to several dimensions such as bias, privacy, scalability, and spam. We
also cover related concepts such as the long tail of the special
interests of people, or the digital desert, content that nobody sees.
