Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.


NIH Frontiers in Science Webinar- Got Data? Building a Sustainable Ecosystem for Data Driven Research

November 4th, 2015 / in Announcements, policy, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

Francine BurmanThe Office of the Associate Director for Data Science (ADDS) at the National Institute of Health (NIH) invites you to attend Got Data? Building a Sustainable Ecosystem for Data Driven Research as part of its Frontiers in Science webinar series.

The Frontiers in Science series brings ideas at the forefront of data science to the NIH and biomedical science communities. Lectures, webinars, and workshops in this series are intended to inspire biomedical data science innovation and exploration.

TITLE:  Got Data? Building a Sustainable Ecosystem for Data Driven Research

DATE: Thursday, November 5, 2015, 4 – 5PM

LOCATION: NIH Main Campus, Building 35A Room 620/630. The event will be broadcasted live here.

SPEAKER:  Dr. Francine Berman is the Edward P. Hamilton Distinguished Professor in Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

ABSTRACT:

Innovation in a digital world presupposes that the data will be there when you need it, but will it? Without sufficient data infrastructure and attention to the stewardship and preservation of digital data, data may become inaccessible or lost. This is particularly problematic for data generated by sponsored research projects where the focus is on innovation rather than infrastructure, and support for stewardship and preservation may be short-term. In this presentation, Dr. Fran Berman discusses sustainability, infrastructure, and data, and explores the opportunities and challenges of creating a viable ecosystem for the data on which current and future research and innovation increasingly depend.
