This Interest Group will focus on data related issues of science applications associated with large scale source facilities, including: synchrotron x-ray sources, free-electron laser x-ray sources, reactor and spallation neutron sources, muon sources, large electron microscope, NMR and high-powered laser facilities, which are used typically for investigations into the structure of matter at micro or nano scale.  

These facilities are characterised by a central facility providing access to scarce and specialised instruments which are typically beyond the means of single research groups, and are thus shared and used by many research teams to conduct experiments.  These experiments come from a wide range of disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, biology, metallurgy, engineering, materials science, palaeontology and archaeology. The user communities are rather heterogeneous, volatile and globally distributed. Issues to be tackled are hence bound to be global and interdisciplinary requiring a decent level of standardization and interoperability.

August 30th RDA Community Cross-Fertilisation Workshop on Disciplinary Data

by Beth Knazook

An upcoming RDA community cross-fertilisation workshop focused on disciplinary research needs is happening at 10:00 UTC on August 30th. Participating groups include Linguistics, Biodiversity, and Life Sciences, with a roundtable discussion from RDA/EOSC Future Domain Ambassadors in those research fields as well as Materials Sciences and Engineering, Social Sciences, and Ethics and Law. We're looking forward to a lively discussion!

RE: RDA Plenary in Salzburg, Oct 23

by Brian Matthews

Dear All, Thanks for your support on the RDA Plenary session in October - and also for offers to speak. Its been great to see the level of interest. The agenda is quite tight, with only 90mins, so I have had to be quite strict in the timing allowed. So I propose the following revised agenda: Approaches to FAIR Data in Facilities Internationally - 35 mins 1. A FAIR data toolkit for European PaN RIs - Brian Matthews (STFC) (contribution from Andy Götz - ESRF) - 10 mins

by Andy Gotz

Dear David + others, we are involved in a smaller more European project for materials science - AddMorePower (https://addmorepower.eu/) where we are also dealing with FAIR data. We will be storing the processed data in the FAIRMat data repository NOMADLab (https://nomad-lab.eu/nomad-lab/) and the ESRF data repository (https://data.esrf.fr) for the synchrotron data. It would be

Re: [rda-rdnpnsc-ig] RDA Plenary in Salzburg, Oct 23

by David Elbert

Hi Brian- This is great news! Although I've been peripheral so far, I will be in Salzburg and planning to participate in the session in person. There has been a lot of interest in the US MaRDA Alliance in having a working group on synchrotron FAIR data and I've tried to spread the word a bit more about how to coordinate between such activities already well underway in the US (mostly DOE), the more "aspiration" efforts here, and things being done internationally. I'm really looking forward to this session. Thanks to the group for pushing this ahead! -David

Re: [ExPaNDS-WP2] RDA Plenary in Salzburg, Oct 23

by Andy Gotz

Hi Brian, no problem to add me as speaker. It would be good to find some examples of FAIR data and dark data. I wonder if John or Kamil can help with examples from their communities. Andy
