Workshops prior to the International Digital Curation Conference

Pre-conference workshops can be very useful and interesting; they can be a good part of the justification for attending a conference, giving an extended opportunity to focus on a single topic, followed by a broader (but shallower) look at many topics, at the conference itself. This time it is quite frustrating, as I would very much like to go to all the workshops! There is still time to register for your choice, and for the IDCC conference itself.

Disciplinary Dimensions of Digital Curation: New Perspectives on Research Data

Our SCARP Project case studies have explored data curation practice across a variety of clinical, life, social, humanities, physical and engineering research communities. This workshop is the final event in SCARP, and will present the reports and synthesis.

Digital Curation 101 Lite Training

Research councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This one-day training workshop is aimed at researchers and those who support researchers and want to learn more about how to develop sound data management and curation plans.

Citability of Research Data

Goal: Handling research datasets as unique, independent, citable research objects offers a wide variety of opportunities.

The goal of the new DataCite cooperation is to establish a not-for-profit agency that enables organisations to register research datasets and assign persistent identifiers to them.

Citable datasets are accessible and can be integrated into existing catalogues and infrastructures. A citable datasets furthermore rewards scientists for their extra-work in storage and quality control of data by granting scientific reputation through cite-counts. The workshop will examine the different methods for the enabling of citable datasets and discuss common best practices and challenges for the future.

Repository Preservation Infrastructure (REPRISE)
(co-organised by the OGF Repositories Group, OGF-Europe, D-Grid/WissGrid)

Following on from the successful Repository Curation Service Environments (RECURSE) Workshop at IDCC 2008, this workshop discusses digital repositories and their specific requirements for/as preservation infrastructure, as well as their role within a preservation environment.
