Panel Presentations

We are seeking panelists for the following topics (other panels are being curated by members of the program committee):

  • Developing and implementing institutional policies for research data: ownership, preservation, and compliance.

This panel will discuss approaches institutions have taken to develop and implement policies for a variety of issues related to research data, including ownership, copyright, commercialization, privacy, embargoes, access controls, sharing, reuse, and preservation

  • Building data curation/management services on a shoestring budget.

This panel will discuss how to quickly start up data curation/management services with limited resources from the perspective of institutions that have recently done so in response to funding agency policies and/or other external factors.
