Dealing with Data: developing a roadmap.

27. september 2013 | Posted by | Category: events other-news

To follow-up on the Mega Data: Challenges and Opportunities” workshop in April four additional workshops have been arranged under the heading “Dealing with Data: developing a roadmap.”

The workshops are as follows:

1: A roadmap towards a plan for scientific data publication and retrieval
October 28th, 10am – 4pm.
Faculty Library of Natural and Health Sciences, Nørre Allé 49 2200 Copenhagen N

This workshop will deal with issues related to publishing and retrieving scientific / research data, in the sense that the data in question is either directly related to a publication – e.g. a scientific article or book – or that data is published by means of an established scholarly publishing channel.


Workshop 2: Metadata
November 11th, 10am – 4pm
Emil Holms Kanal, building 22, Auditorium 22.0.11, 2300 Copenhagen S

How do we generate useful and shareable metadata? How do we qualify, preserve, share and display metadata?  How do we use metadata in an ethically responsible way? Who owns metadata? These will be some of the questions raised and discussed during this seminar focusing on common metadata solutions across faculties and disciplines.


Workshop 3: A roadmap towards data sharing across disciplines and national borders
November 25th, 10am – 4pm
Location: Auditorium 1, HCØ, Universitetsparken 5

Sharing data is so common in some research fields that not sharing is not even considered, in others the tradition is less uniform, and in others again the idea of sharing data is so unfamiliar that it is not even considered. However, it is anticipated that sharing is going to become the standard for most fields of research in the coming years. Yet, at the current time researchers experience legal technical, ethical and financial challenges when they attempt to share data. Precisely these issues will be addressed at this workshop and we are very keen to get participants from all areas of research at UCPH since cultural, technical, and legal issues are so very different amongst the fields.


Workshop 4: The final workshop will be held where the conclusions and recommendations that have emerged from the three workshops will be presented.
Date: January 15th, 1pm – 5pm
Place: A1-01.01, Bülowsvej 17, 1870 Frederiksberg C
