UW's Data Services Coordinator Stephanie Wright will be speaking at the upcoming 8th International Digital Curation Conference in Amsterdam in January 2013. The conference brings together folks who create, manage and use information, and those who research and teach about the curation process. This year's theme, "Infrastructure, Intelligence, Innovation: driving the Data Science Agenda," has invited speakers from around the globe to discuss issues such as stewardship in the marine sciences, data stories from the business world, supporting data-intensive research, and many others.
In preparation for her participation in the symposium, titled "What is a Data Scientist?," the conference organizers interviewed Wright and asked her opinion on pressing issues, her thoughts of types of data, and more. Follow the conference January 14-16 via #idcc13.
