Second Latin America and Caribbean Scientific Data Management Workshop

We are delighted to announce that the Second Latin America and the Caribbean Scientific Data Management Workshop will be held online on Wednesday, 10 and Wednesday, 24 February. Registration is now open.
 

The Second Latin America and the Caribbean Scientific Data Management Workshop convened by the World Data System of the International Science Council (WDS), in collaboration with the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), and the Research Data Alliance (RDA) was due to take place in April 2020 at FAPESP. COVID-19 forced the postponement of the Workshop, and with the situation not improved, the organizers have decided to organize the following two virtual sessions consisting of talks and interactive panel discussions:

  • Session 1, 12:00–14:00 UTC on Wednesday, 10 February 2021: Research Data Management – Introducing RDA and WDS; and Scientific Data Management in Health and the Environment
  • Session 2, 12:00–15:00 UTC on Wednesday, 24 February 2021: Certification of Scientific Data Repositories (The Why, the How, the When)

Videos of Short Presentations

The WDS YouTube Channel is hosting a set of short presentations with examples of work on the management of scientific research data. This work was to be presented live at the original Second LAC Workshop in April 2020. Videos are publically available, and are to be kept online for wide dissemination and as a permanent resource/collection.
