Data Publishing in Computer Proceedings

If your proceedings have been accepted for publication in one of our proceedings series, a branded area can be set up for your conference within Springer Nature’s figshare repository. Any data/software used/developed in the papers published in the proceedings may be uploaded to this branded area and given a permanent DOI. The papers on SpringerLink link to the data on figshare and vice versa. 

Learn more about how to organise data/software publishing in a useful way, the workflows and prices, guidelines for authors & editors, contacts and examples.

Latest figures!  The introduction of data publishing was well received and sees an increasing interest by our authors and editors. 67 datasets have been recorded to date since our process started in late 2019. For copyright year 2019, 21 datasets from 4 conferences have been presented.
