1st Annual Data Symposium, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL

Please join faculty, students, and staff at the inaugural data symposium at the University of Florida. A major goal of this event to bring researchers, faculty, students, staff, and non-profits together at the campus-level in efforts to collaborate on work across multiple communities of practice and stakeholders. This event combines with the Data Carpentry workshops @ UF (proposed March 20 - 21, 2018) and the University of Florida' Informatics Institute Annual Symposium on March 22, 2018. Key goals of this symposium are to (1) further develop library/researcher partnerships and (2) encourage research collaborations between faculty, students, and staff across disciplines, levels, and units.

The 1st Annual University of Florida Data Symposium will be held in Gainesville, Florida and hosted by the George A. Smathers Libraries on March 19, 2018. This one-day conference, "Enabling Data Reproducibility and Sustainability," will bring together researchers interested in the aggregation, dissemination, and preservation of data for current and future use.
Speakers and Program:

Description: Many stakeholders are involved in the management of data throughout the data lifecycle. There is a need for faculty, students, and staff to develop best practices that address data challenges affecting all disciplines in the form of organization, infrastructure, resources, and technology. In continued efforts to build library and researcher partnerships, capacity, and a culture of data management across campus, the University of Florida (UF) George A. Smathers Libraries and UF Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences (IFAS) Wildlife Ecology and Conservation are sponsoring the 1st Annual Data Symposium Conference on Enabling Data Reproducibility and Sustainability at UF on March 19, 2018
