Because good research needs good data

IDCC20 - Workshop Registration is now open

Alexandra Delipalta | 29 October 2019

We are excited to announce that registration for our packed IDCC20 workshop programme is now open! Workshops will be held on Monday 17 February 2020 at Croke Park, Dublin, Ireland. 

Workshop programme:

Monday 17 February 2020


Participants from Scaling Emulation as a Service Infrastructure (EaaSI) program of work and the Fostering a Community of Practice in Software Preservation (FCoP) will introduce the work of software preservation and emulation in a research data curation context through a combination of demonstrations, use case examples and hands-on exercises that convey technical knowledge about emulation services and encourage organizational reflection. The workshop will empower participants to envision ways that software preservation and emulation impact their current and future work. 

This workshop covers a variety of established provenance metadata standards and controlled vocabularies useful in digital curation, including PREMIS, PROV, PROV-ONE, PRIMAD and DPC-Vocab. The morning session introduces the capabilities and limitations of these metadata models along with examples using real-world research data. The afternoon session includes group discussions as well as hands-on experiments of cross-walking between the metadata standards.

Many organisations and research groups are developing strategies to develop a FAIR data culture in their policies and practices.  Based on the initial landscape analysis work of the European Commission funded FAIRsFAIR project, this half day workshop will share practical recommendations that you can include in your approach to support a FAIR data culture in your organization and the wider research ecosystem. The workshop is targeted towards policy makers, funders, service providers, and research support staff.

Digital science demands capable support services with skilled personnel, aware of the FAIR principles and prepared to engage with researchers on their implementation. This workshop will offer a practical approach to strategic RDM service development, with special focus on FAIR skills and engagement capabilities. Participants will work with the RISE and FAIR4S frameworks and, through group collaboration, identify skills and capabilities needed in their respective institutions, taking into account the development of pan-institution, cross-domain and international infrastructures such as the European Open Science Cloud. 

Further information can be found at the dedicated workshops page, including draft programmes and registration details.
