What do researchers, information specialists, and data specialists need to know about data-intensive research and tools for data management? What can researchers gain from working with librarians? What can we all gain from a better understanding of the research data lifecycle, from either a researcher or library perspective? This spring, the Research Lifecycle: Partnering for Success conference will explore these questions and provide opportunities to network and interact with other information and data specialists in the Pacific Northwest.
During the forum you’ll hear from keynote speaker, Victoria Stodden, whose work has focused on standards of open and reproducible research, and polices for data sharing for federally funded research. You’ll also hear and interact with panelists about innovative tools and services such as the semantic research resource database eagle-i, the research portfolio tool VIVO, the data management utility DMPTool, and the survey and database development tool RedCap. Participate in a focused discussion on opportunities for collaborations between researchers and librarians during live interactive sessions that link presenters and participants located in Portland, Seattle and Salt Lake City. Participants will also enjoy lunch, breakout sessions and networking!
