The Research Data Architectures for Research Institutions (RDARI) Interest Group of the Research Data Alliance is conducting a survey of the research data management services offered by universities and research institutions around the world. This will enable comparisons to be drawn between different institutions and help establish benchmarks for service provision.

The deadline for group session submissions for Plenary 15 is 28 November 2019, midnight UTC – just two weeks away.

If your group is interested in submitting a session for a working group, interest group or joint meeting session, submissions will only be accepted from your group chairs, so be sure to coordinate with them to ensure proper communication of the submission.

If you are a chair and submitting for a joint meeting session, all chairs involved in that joint session must be notified of the submission.

The rapid growth in the volume and diversity of biological data promise a better understanding of the basic biological processes. But to analyse these data and transform this information into new insights, life science researches need new skills in data manipulation, computer science and statistics. There is a growing demand all around the world for training in data management, large scale analysis, machine learning or data visualisation.
