UW Libraries hosting virtual conference on "Dealing with the Data Deluge"

The UW Libraries is excited to announce that it will be hosting an upcoming NISO (National Information Standards Organization) virtual conference on "Dealing with the Data Deluge: Successful Techniques for Scientific Data Management." Attendance is open to the UW community.
  • Where: Allen Auditorium, UW Libraries
  • When: Wednesday, April 23, 8am-2pm
  • What: "Dealing with the Data Deluge: Successful Techniques for Scientific Data Management," a NISO virtual conference

With funding support from the Libraries Organization Development & Training to cover our site registration, this virtual conference will "explore in greater depth than traditional webinars some of the practical lessons from those who have implemented data management and developed best practices, as well as provide some insight into the evolving issues the community faces." More details from the event page:
With the expansion of digital data collection and the increased expectations of data sharing, researchers are turning to their libraries or institutional repositories as a place to store and preserve that data. Many institutions have created such data management services and see the data curation role as a growing and important element of their service portfolio. While some of the experience in managing other types of digital resources is transferrable, the management of large-scale scientific data has many special requirements and challenges. From metadata collection and cataloging data sources, to identification, discovery, and preservation, best practices and standards are still in their infancy.
Topics and Speakers include:
  • Keynote Speaker – Jan Brase, Ph.D., German National Library of Science and Technology; Managing Agent of DateCite, Chair of the International DOI Foundation (IDF), Vice-President of the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI), and Co-Chair of the CODATA Data Citation task group
  • Guidelines and Resources for Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Data Access Plans –Jared Lyle, Director of Data Curation Services, Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), University of Michigan
  • Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles: Implementation of the Principles in the Harvard Dataverse Repository – Merce Corsas, Ph.D., Director of Data Science, Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), Harvard University
  • Purdue University Research Repository (PURR): A Commitment to Supporting Researchers – Michael Witt, Head, Distributed Data Curation Center (D2C2); Associate Professor of Library Science, Purdue University Research Repository (PURR)
  • Is This Data Fit for My Use? The Challenges and Opportunities Data Provenance Presents – Adriane Chapman, MITRE
  • A Durable Space: Technologies for Accessing Our Collective Digital Heritage – David Wilcox, Product Manager, DuraSpace
  • The SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) Project: A Joint Initiative of ARL, AAU, and APLU –Judy Ruttenberg, Program Director for Transforming Research Libraries, Association of Research Libraries (ARL)
