Research Data Alliance (RDA) Plenary events see a global cohort of data professionals meeting to work on international data challenges. During the period from 3 - 11 November, a series of parallel sessions will be organised across different time zones to facilitate participation from across the globe. Working
Is Data Science a new approach to solving problems, one that applies across disciplines as various as physics, sociology and linguistics? Or are machine learning, deep convoluted neural nets, and other exciting phrases just statistics on steroids? Recent developments in Data Science broadly construed, and the products these have yielded (or promise to yield) are undeniably exciting: identifying and predicting disease, personalised healthcare recommendations, automating digital ad placement, predicting incarceration rates, and countless other tools have attracted a lot of attention.
Following the postponement of International Data Week to June 2022 (hybrid and onsite in Seoul, Republic of Korea), it was decided to retain some of the most significant and time sensitive session proposals and to run them in a Virtual SciDataCon.
On October 20th FAIRsFAIR will join the online workshop "The Road to EOSC seen from the national level", organized by the Authority for Digitalization of Romania and the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, in collaboration with Open Science Knowledge Hub (OSKH) and the coordinators of the National Initiative on the cloud for open science (RO-NOSCI).
iPRES, or the International Conference on Digital Preservation is the premier conference series on digital preservation. Since 2004 there have been annual iPRES conferences around the globe for the international digital preservation community to share their recent research, development projects, implementation efforts, and other practical experiences, and to enhance collaborations within the field and across the related domains.
#EGI2021 will take place from October 19th until 21st. The conference theme is: “Beyond the Horizon: Shaping the Digital Future”. This event will provide an overview of how the EGI Federation is contributing to shaping the digital future: with EOSC growing more mature, the new EU research funding programme Horizon Europe on its way, and an exciting range of advanced services and innovative computing models supporting research, a new landscape for research is being shaped.
The workshop will focus on presenting and gathering feedback on the draft “FAIR Competence Adoption Handbook for Universities” (working title). The handbook will be a practical tool for universities to implement FAIR research data management content and skills training in Bachelor, Master and Doctoral education programmes and will be published in December 2021. During the event, participants will reflect on the value and relevance of the handbook through the lens of practical examples of successful integration of FAIR-related content in higher education programmes.
