The IG RDMinEng was established by the RDA in September 2019.

 

The IG RDMinEng is a discipline-specific group, which on the one hand addresses the needs of engineers and on the other hand focuses on developments in the field of RDM.
Generally there are a lot of discussions around about general requirements. At the same time discipline-specific adaptations of individual aspects such as metadata or data management plans are pointed out. One of the most important discipline-specific aspects in the engineering sciences is industrial cooperation. As a result, data requirements change and secrecy is given greater weight than in other disciplines.

 

If you like to discuss with us on RDMinEng.slack.com please sent a mail to one of the co-chairs.

 

In order to shed light on these different aspects and perspectives, IG RDMinEng decided to form four focus groups on the topics DMP, data annotation, metadata and Open Science at the Plenary P14 in Helsinki.

 

In July, September and October 2020 we will organize an online seminar series on data annotation and metadata together with other RDA IGs/ WGs to bring the different parties together and generate output specific to engineering. The aim of the online seminar series is to explore initiatives, projects and application already existing or under develpment that coulr be applied or adapted to research data founded in engineering disciplines. The online seminars will be announced progressively on the events page of the IG RDMinEng: https://rd-alliance.org/node/61116/events.

Please reserve 20th July 2-4 pm CESTfor "Scientific Annotation - Engineering Applications, Discovery and Preservation" and 29th July 1-2 pm CEST for "Lessons from semantic technologies for drone for scientific IoT".

 

The focus group on engineer-specific DMPs will be integrated into the currently forming WG "Discipline-specific guidance for DMPs". It is planned to submit a BoF session at P16.

IG RDM in Engineering - Online seminar series - “Exploring annotation and metadata initiatives for engineering data”

by Paula Martinez Lavanchy

The IG RDM in Engineering is organizing an online seminar series to activate the work of its focus groups ‘Data annotation’ and ‘Metadata’ established at the 14th RDA Plenary. The aim of this online seminar series is to explore initiatives, projects and applications already existing or under development that could be applied or adapted to research data found in engineering disciplines.

RDMinEng session for P16

by Daniela Hausen

Hello everyone, virtual P16 will take place from 9th - 12th Nov. We should think about our plans for a virtual session. I set up a poll for a pre-meeting to start with and discuss some ideas. If you are interested in joining, please fill it in by the end of the week. https://terminplaner4.dfn.de/TULxjV4mqTlZUhvI Best wishes Daniela -- Daniela Hausen (Dipl.-Chem.)

Development of common metadata schemas

by Nikola Vasiljević

Dear all, It would be great if we could try to work towards common metadata schemas for: 1. building engineering-related vocabularies of parameters 2. data streams (record of individual parameter values) 3. data sets (set of one or several related data streams) 4. data collections (collection of one or multiple related data sets) 5. phenomena we observe through data analysis 6. data annotations

Engineering-specific DMP

by Daniela Hausen

Hello everyone, At P14 in Helsinki we had a discussion about a engineering-specific DMP. At the as we mentioned at a slide in our last session at VP15, the work on a engineering-specific DMP will be implemented in a new WG. At the same plenary session, the active DMP session also discussed discipline-specific DMPs. Here the idea of a WG on the topic of discipline-specific DMPs was born. In the WG the life science - Biology and Medicine as well as the social science with Behavioural and Educational sciences are represented.

Virtual Poster Session at VP15, 30 March - 3 April 2020

by Jamie Lupo-Petta

  As part of the virtual plenary, we are holding a Virtual Poster Session, offering those who submitted a poster to Plenary 15 the opportunity to showcase their work. Posters can be related to teaching and learning online, or promote the author’s concepts and ideas on specific topics.   During the week of 30th March, please visit the poster pages, add your comments and engage with the presenters! They will be available and online that week to respond and interact with you.

virtual session replacement

by Daniela Hausen

Dear RDMinEng IG members, Just a quick note to let you know that we are working on coordinating a virtual replacement for our P15 Joint Session IG RDMinEng and sUAS data IG. We will let you know when we have the details about timing, preparation, and processes. If you are interested in presenting your work or your project in the field of research data management in engineering sciences, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience while we work out the details. Best, Daniela (on behalf of the co-chairs)
