Regional Symposium: Pacific Northwest Research and Data Forum
The Pacific Northwest Research and Data Forum will bring together researchers, librarians and information specialists from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and northern California to share their work in the area of data, data management, semantic technologies, research trends and scholarly communication. This symposium will address a growing need to develop and share resources concerning Research Data Management (RDM) to the broad community. The event will include an external keynote speaker, a hands-on programming experience (a customized Software Carpentry event), a grant or publication writing workshop as well as round table discussions. Expected outcomes of the Forum will be increased skills and knowledge regarding research, education and outreach addressing data management and analysis. The symposium will also offer protected time to form or continue new collaborations across the region.
