The purpose of this event is to initiate and maintain a regional dialogue on e-Science, identify ways libraries can better support patrons and researchers, and ways that libraries can deliver relevant and effective research data management services at their institutions. The theme of this year's Forum is Research Data Management 2020 and 2030.


Have you ever wondered about research support methods and considered a data lab at your library? This year's keynote speakers are: Amy L. Nurnberger, the Program Head of Data Management Services at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Daniel Sheehan, the Head of GIS & Statistical Software Services at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This will be followed by lightning talks. The afternoon will consist of group breakout sessions where participants can engage in hands on activities visualizing what research data management practices will look like in the future. This is a great opportunity to network, gain a few new skills, and learn about recent developments in e-science librarianship.
