Meeting Theme and Objectives

The 2017 meeting theme, “Data Discoverability, Reproducibility, and Sustainability”, will bring together stakeholders to explore current advancements in these areas. Community talks and posters that explore broad topics of discoverability, reproducibility and sustainability are invited. Some examples are provided below:

Data Discoverability: this theme focuses on providing access to distributed data across heterogeneous systems in efforts for aggregating, disseminating, and linking data and related research materials.

  • Describing, Documenting, and Representing Data
  • Connecting journal articles to datasets to repositories
  • Distinguishing between publishing, data, preservation repositories

Reproducibility: this theme focuses on enabling research data to be used, reused, and duplicated in order for current and future researchers to understand, reproduced, and build on existing research data.

  • Best Practices, Guidelines, and Standards
  • Procedures, Tools, and Workflows
  • Projects, Prototypes, and Use Cases

Sustainability: this theme focuses on implementing components, building blocks, and synergies necessary for the development, growth, and extensibility of projects throughout the project lifecycle and post-funding support.

  • Collaborations, Partnerships, and Stakeholders
  • Infrastructure, Resources, and Support
  • Computation, Integration, and Certification

DataONE encourages DataONE Member Nodes, data scientists, researchers, scientists, students and others to submit abstracts for posters and talks.
