The Open Data movement has dramatically altered the flow of research findings for those involved in creating, managing or using scientific data. Whether you work within a government agency, library, scholarly society, academic institution or the commercial sector, the expectations, roles and responsibilities for data integrity are rapidly changing. Join CENDI and NFAIS on Thursday, November 20, 2014 as we explore the technical, financial, political, and social/cultural forces that must be considered for ensuring the quality and integrity of scientific data.
A fantastic cadre of speakers has been put together including:
* Dr. Marcia McNutt, Editor-in-Chief of Science Magazine and former Director of the USGS.
* Dr. Michael Stebbins, Assistant Director for Biotechnology at the Office of Science & Technology Policy, and Daniel Morgan, Chief Data Officer of the Department of Transporation.
* Dr. Laura Biven, Senior Science and Technology Advisor at the Department of Energy, and Dr. Isaac Kohane from Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Jane Silverthorne, Deputy Assistant Director at the National Science Foundation.
* Dr. Jane Greenberg, Professor and Director of Metadata Research Center at Drexel University, Dr. Bruce Wilson, representing Oak Ridge National Laboratory and DataOne, and Megan Force from Thomson Reuters.
