Managing Research Data Hack Days – Event Report
DevCSI recently ran a ‘Managing Research Data Hack event‘ on 3-4 May 2012 in Manchester.
The event report has now been published on the DevCSI blog, some highlights include:
- Considering the use of SWORD 2 and BitTorrent to deal with large datasets
- Proof-of-concept centralised service for tracking activity data around research projects and individual datasets
- User perspectives on metadata for datasets and examining a common schema to describe metadata for datasets
There are several multimedia interviews with attendees who talked about what they learned, discussed and worked on at the event.
We hope you find the report useful and watch out for similar future follow-up events in this area from DevCSI and JISC.
