Data and Visualization Workshop Series

Researchers work with lots of data both big and small, in many different formats and across various digital systems. The first hour of this workshop will introduce good digital data management practices and how they can be practically applied throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices cover pre-project planning, active workflow organization, documentation, storage and backup strategies, and optimizing your final "data package" to fulfill research quality and reproducibility requirements and facilitate new research. The second hour of this workshop will allow participants to break up into broad disciplinary groups (sciences and engineering, social sciences, and humanities) for a facilitated discussion on how to specifically apply good data management in your field. Be prepared to share your own tips and tricks and challenges for this portion of the workshop.
