Dear colleagues,

The following half-day data curation event at Oxford may be of interest to some

This workshop is organized as part of the dissemination activities of
the JISC-funded EIDCSR Project<http://eidcsr.oucs.ox.ac.uk>. The aim of
the workshop is to hear about proven practice in selected data
management areas identified as challenging for researchers through the
EIDCSR audit and requirements analysis exercise,

Whilst the EIDCSR Project is addressing the requirements of researchers
working within medical and life sciences, the event is likely to be of
interest to those working in, or supporting, other disciplinary areas.

The expected audience includes researchers who generate data in labs and
computing simulations and staff from service units with an interest in
research data management and curation issues.


Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to learn about,
and contribute to discussion of, the different approaches to the
ensuring the flow of data between laboratory and in silico
experimentation. In particular, the workshop will discuss:

   * methods for the capture, storage and reuse of metadata in the
   * lifecycles integrating wet lab and in silico experimental data;
   * for delivery and visualisation of large-scale data.


Speakers include:

* Alan Garny, Oxford Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics -
Alan will discuss his research group data management workflow and

* Brian Brooks, Unilever Cambridge Centre for Molecular Informatics -
Brian will talk about their Chemical Laboratory Repository In/Organic
Notebooks (CLARION) Project.

* Angus White, Digital Curation Centre - Angus will share the
experiences from the DCC SCARP Project on data management best practice.

* Aaron Griffiths, Research Information Network - Aaron will present the
findings from the RIN disciplinary case studies in life sciences

* Chris Goodyer, School of Computing - University of Leeds will describe the
work to develop a 3D visualization of MRI data and the potential to use this
experience to access the raw data by navigating the 3D model.
