NISO April Virtual Conference: Dealing with the Data Deluge: Successful
Techniques for Scientific Data Management

Virtual conferences are 5-6 hour conferences held online in webinar-like
formats, with occasional breaks in the schedule for participants. The longer
length allows the depth of coverage of a conference coupled with the
convenience of a webinar.

Date: April 23, 2014

Time: 11:00 am - 5:00 pm Eastern

ABOUT THE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

With the expansion of digital data collection and the increased expectations
of data sharing, researchers are turning to their libraries or institutional
repositories as a place to store and preserve that data. Many institutions
have created such data management services and see the data curation role as
a growing and important element of their service portfolio. While some of
the experience in managing other types of digital resources is
transferrable, the management of large-scale scientific data has many
special requirements and challenges. From metadata collection and cataloging
data sources, to identification, discovery, and preservation, best practices
and standards are still in their infancy.

NISO's April 23 Virtual Conference, Dealing with the Data Deluge: Successful
Techniques for Scientific Data Management-to be held from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Eastern-will explore in greater depth than traditional webinars some of the
practical lessons from those who have implemented data management and
developed best practices, as well as provide some insight into the evolving
issues the community faces.
