Implementing Effective Data Practices: Stakeholder Recommendations for Collaborative Research Support

In December 2019, immediately following the CNI Fall Member meeting, the Association of Research Libraries convened an NSF-funded workshop to examine how to improve research data management practices. This was done in partnership with the California Digital Library, the Association of American Universities, and the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities. They have just issued the final report from this workshop, Implementing Effective Data Practices: Stakeholder Recommendations for...

AIDR 2020 Symposium -- October 19

In conjunction with Open Science Symposium, October 20, 2020
AIDR (Artificial Intelligence for Data Discovery and Reuse) aims to find innovative solutions to accelerate the dissemination and reuse of scientific data in the data revolution. The explosion in the volume of scientific data has made it increasingly challenging to find data scattered across various platforms. At the same time, increasing numbers of new data formats, greater data complexity, lack of consistent data standards...

The 3rd Carnegie Mellon University Open Science Symposium -- October 20

In conjunction with AIDR 2020, October 19, 2020
We are excited to invite all students, data users, and researchers to join us at the third annual CMU Open Science Symposium, taking place virtually on Zoom. The symposium will build awareness and support for the adoption of open research practices and encourage innovative ideas about data sharing.

The full day program will feature talks from researchers, tool developers, and publishers; panel discussions; and networking...

Walk before You Run - Baseline controls and paths to cybersecurity maturity -- Webinar on October 22

Are you a seasoned IT pro who’s been tasked with handling security for your organization? Are you a brand-new CISO awash in a sea of security products and vendors? Or maybe you (finally!) received additional resources and management’s approval to “do something” about cybersecurity. Whichever the case, you look out over your environment of legacy systems and hardware, policies, multiple frameworks and compliance requirements and ask yourself:

Where do I begin, and how do I know...

iDigBio - Integrated Digitized Biocollections

Annual conference on digital biological collections with free registration. It will be preceded by a series of short workshops September 15-17 dealing with natural history collections in the age of COVID-19, with the main conference happening on the afternoons (Eastern US time) on September 22-25. There are some superb sessions here. It's unclear from the web page whether the sessions will be recorded for later asynchronous viewing.
