UKOLN International Seminar on 1 April: Dr Andrew Treloar on Data Management

Posted by Brian Kelly on 23 March 2011

A post entitled UKOLN Seminar on Elluminate Open to All described how we were opening up access to UKOLN seminars in order to help to maximise their impact.

The next seminar will take place on 1 April. Dr Andrew Treloar, Director of Technology for the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), will give a seminar entitled Data Management: International Challenges, National Infrastructure and Institutional Responses – an Australian Perspective. The abstract for the seminar is given below:

This seminar will first consider the international challenges arising from the shift towards data-intensive research and the rapid uptake of instruments that produce very large data volumes. It will then consider the national approach taken in Australia in the form of the Australian National Data Service (ANDS). The seminar will present the rationale for ANDS, its different programmes, and the services that are being developed and taken up. ANDS has adopted an explicit (but not exclusive) emphasis on institutional engagement. The seminar will conclude by considering the ways in which different institutions in Australia are responding to, and engaging with, ANDS programmes. The seminar should be relevant to anyone with an interest in data management.

The seminar will start at 11 am and will be open not only to UKOLN staff and researchers and other interested parties at the University of Bath but also to the wider community.  In order to help us to gauge demand if you would like to attend please use the Eventbrite system to book a free ticket.
