Center for Data and Visualization Sciences (CDVS) Workshop Series

Scientists work with lots of data both big and small, and in many formats and systems. This workshop will introduce data management practices for scientists to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a sciences lens using discipline-based, concrete examples. During the workshop, participants will also engage in discussions with their peers on data management concepts as well as learn about one specific tool as a method to assess how tools can enable specific data management practices. The tool explored in this workshop will be GitHub - a robust version control tool.
