Workshop: Primer on Data Management

Sunday, 22 January 2012, 8:30–12:00 p.m.; Room 338/339


In this half-day workshop on Sunday January 22, 2012, everything the modern data-producing scientist needs to know about data management will be introduced. We will discuss the rationale for data management planning particularly in the context of NSF’s requirement for a 2-page data management plan to accompany every proposal; dealing with data during the course of your research; finding and working with a long term archive; as well as properly giving credit to other data producers.


This workshop is free and open to all AMS attendees, though registration is required.  For those that would like to attend, be sure to add the event when registering for the Annual meeting . The event can be found under “Add additional items to your registration”. Please note that this course is limited to 100 attendees on a first-come, first served basis. Bringing your own fully charged laptop is strongly encouraged. Sponsored by NOAA and the Data Conservancy and conducted by the ESIP Federation., the attendance cap has been met and registration for this event is now closed.


A similar workshop, Data Management 101 for the Earth Scientist, was held at December’s AGU meeting in San Fransisco.  Moderators from that event were provided with constructive feedback from participants and that feedback was taken into consideration when planning this workshop.  The most noted request was the need for more concrete examples, which will be provided.
