Monday Afternoon Data and Software Preservation Quality Workshop at RDA

12 Sep 2017


There are 9 on-site seats remaining for the Data and Software Preservation Quality Tools free pre-plenary PresQT Workshop to be held Monday, Sept 18 2-6 PM .   The workshop is a free co-located event at the 10th Plenary in Montreal. 

Members of the Repository Platforms for Research Data Interest Group are welcome to attend. We recommend registering for on-site seats.  Both virtual and on-site registration options are available and the workshop offers a remote participation option. 

Target Audience: We seek input from domain researchers, data curators, repository managers, librarians, software developers, workflow tool developers, data scientists and editors/publishers.

Workshop participants will explore system architecture alternatives, discuss user experience opportunities, and prioritize functional requirements for  proposed tools to inform technical and administrative implementation plans for open source Data and Software Preservation Quality Tools that can be jointly developed by interested parties. 

The workshop's parent project, PresQT, engages stakeholders in a collaborative planning effort to enhance reproducibility and more open sharing of research data through open source development of  Research Data & Software Preservation Quality Tools.

We hope to see you in Montreal or online, 

John Wang, Sandra Gesing, Rick Johnson, and Natalie Meyers
