On the 12th of January 2010, Maurizio Marchese and Aliaksandr Birukou, on behalf of Fabio Casati, gave a talk "Reshaping Scientific Knowledge Dissemination and Evaluation in the Age of the Web" at one of informal meetings of scientific staff of European Commission. Slides are available here. 

Abstract

This talk tries to unveil some of the problems inherent in the current knowledge creation, dissemination, and evaluation practices, also based on models and quantitative analyses of the effectiveness of peer review as gatekeeping/assessment method and of citations as measure of impact. The speaker will present the recent research and development threads aiming at making the knowledge generation and dissemination process efficient, and the evaluation process (more) fair and accurate. He will in particular present the models and tools being developed to this end, which are essentially based on applying to knowledge dissemination the lessons learned from open source development and the social web. The presentation will be interactive and discussion-oriented.
