Subject: [Dataverse-Users] Pre-Meeting Workshop: Common Models and APIs for
Data Publishing and Citation (June 9)
To: <dataverse-community at googlegroups.com>

Hi Dataverse Community,

On June 9, prior to the Dataverse Community Meeting (June 10-11), we are
hosting the *Common Models and APIs for Data Publishing and Citation
Workshop* at Harvard University, which is organized by Tim Clark, Sünje
Dallmeier-Tiessen, Mercè Crosas and the Dataverse team. This workshop will
focus on defining and improving standards for APIs, metadata profiles and
workflows across repositories, publishers’ systems and other data services
to achieve better interoperability (see agenda

The day will be divided into two main sessions: (1) the first half will be
presentations on what has been done so far towards improving
interoperability of data systems, which then will be followed by (2) an
extensive panel discussion session, with active audience participation, on
the main challenges of interoperability, and what the next steps are based
on the different needs of the various stakeholder groups. By the end of
this workshop, we aim to have a set of action items and recommendations for
next steps on how we can best move towards common APIs and metadata so data
repositories, publishers’ systems, and data services can better talk to
each other.

This event is free and open to all, including researchers, librarians,
archivists, publishers, funders, and software developers. Space is limited,
so if you haven't already registered for the Community Meeting, please
<http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/dataverse-community-meeting/register> at
your earliest convenience.

A tentative agenda is listed below with specific questions that we would
like all attendees of this workshop to review ahead of time and help us
answer, so please let us know <support at dataverse.org> if you have any
