Date & Time: BREAKOUT1 Monday 22 Sept 2014, 11.00 – 12.30
Research data can take many forms; from spreadsheets and documents, to large images and videos, and beyond. These files often have metadata associated with them, and may have complex semantic relationships with one another. Research data files can also be gigabytes or even terabytes in size, with millions of files in a single repository. But these requirements alone do not support the diverse needs of the research data community. It is therefore necessary to gather and analyze use cases in order to determine the functionalities required for repository platforms to support research data management. This BoF group will lay the ground work for the formation of a Working Group (WG) on repository platforms for research data. The purpose of the WG will be to gather and analyze research data use cases in order to make recommendations on the functional requirements for repository platforms to build capacity for managing diverse datasets. The BoF group will start the process of gathering use cases and work toward producing a case statement for the WG, including deliverables, a work plan, and the initial WG membership.
