Conference: Dealing with Data 2019
Dealing with Data 2019 will take place on the 27th of November in the Informatics Forum of the University of Edinburgh.
This year the theme is “Collaboration Across the Nations: Managing, sharing and securing research data across space and time”. Collaboration is vitally important to academic and commercial research in all areas as it enables the pooling of resources to answer increasingly complex, or interdisciplinary research questions.
The effective collection, processing, and sharing of research data is integral to successful collaborations, but it can also present many challenges. In particular the practicalities of co-ordinating data management across large multi-centre collaborations, sharing large data, or handling sensitive data, can present difficulties if not planned for appropriately.
Dealing with Data 2019 is your opportunity to hear from, and network with, other members of the UoE research community about how they have addressed these issues to build successful collaborations, or the lessons they have learned which will enable them to be more successful in the future.
Dealing with Data is an annual event sponsored and organised by the Research Data Service to provide a forum for University of Edinburgh researchers to discuss how they are benefiting from, or experiencing struggles with, the fast-changing research data environment.
Among this year’s speakers will be the PSRP’s Sanja Badanjak, who will be presenting on dealing with data from multiple countries, and connecting data produced by international communities of scholars.
