Research Data Management Week 2016

No comments :
You are invited to participate in the 3rd annual Research Data Management Week from May 2-6, 2016!
The standards and practices relating to the management of research data are evolving. Canada's research councils are increasingly advocating for researchers to incorporate data management into their research and to make the results of the research that they fund as accessible as possible. Researchers are faced with challenges relating to ensuring data security and confidentiality while an increasing number of scholarly journals are requiring authors to provide access to the data behind their submissions for publication. Data repositories are being established in domains and institutions to support the sharing and preservation of research data, and the University of Alberta's Research Policy directly addresses the stewardship of research records, with an emphasis on the long-term preservation of data.
Over 20 talks and workshops have been organized to help you better prepare for this evolving global research data ecosystem! 
Keynote speaker Mark Leggot, Executive Director at Research Data Canada will start the week with "The Evolving Data Landscape" (May 2nd at 10:00am).
Come listen to other exciting guest speakers from Alberta Innovates: Health Solutions, The City of Edmonton, and Edmonton Public Libraries.
Research Data Management Week sessions include:
  • data management planning
  • data storage and access options
  • finding reusable research data
  • sharing data through Dataverse
  • data citations.

NEW: This year Compute Canada is offering both pre & post RDM week workshops focusing upon software carpentry, as well as West Grid scheduling. View the full Research Data Management Week schedule and register for sessions!
