EIDCSR workshop on 14 October

The first EIDCSR project workshop is taking place on 14 October, more details below:

Date and location

14 October at Rewley House, 1 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JA

The event will start at 10.30 and will finish with lunch at 13.00


This workshop is organized as part of the dissemination activities of the JISC-funded EIDCSR Project. The aim of the workshop is to hear about proven practice in selected data management areas identified as challenging for researchers through the EIDCSR audit and requirements analysis exercise. Whilst the EIDCSR Project is addressing the requirements of researchers working within medical and life sciences, the event is likely to be of interest to those working in, or supporting, other disciplinary areas.

The expected audience includes researchers who generate data in labs and computing simulations and staff from service units with an interest in research data management and curation issues.


Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to learn about, and contribute to discussion of, the different approaches to the ensuring the flow of data between laboratory and in silico experimentation. In particular, the workshop will discuss:

* methods for the capture, storage and reuse of metadata in the laboratory;

* lifecycles integrating wet lab and in silico experimental data;

* for delivery and visualisation of large-scale data.


Some of the speakers will include:

Alan Garny, Oxford Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics - Alan will discuss his research group data management workflow and challenges.

Brian Brooks, Unilever Cambridge Centre for Molecular Informatics - Brian will talk about their Chemical Laboratory Repository In/Organic Notebooks (CLARION) Project.

Angus Whyte, Digital Curation Centre - Angus will share the experiences from the DCC SCARP Project on data management best practice.
