Best Practices in Data Infrastructure Workshop
May 17-18, 2016
PSC hosted a workshop on Best Practices in Data Infrastructure to bring together developers and users of advanced cyberinfrastructure relating to data management and analytics. The workshop was designed with the following groups in mind: awardees of NSF DIBBs and DataNet projects, leads for acquisitions having data as a major focus, and users with challenging data requirements. The workshop was an excellent opportunity for NSF ACI developers and users to interact. Goals of the workshop included disseminating significant results, creating opportunities for collaboration between data cyberinfrastructure projects, and identifying gaps where users need additional innovation or resources.
The workshop was held over 1.5 days to allow time for presentations and discussion and concluded at noon on May 18th.
The workshop fee was $150.00 due at registration.
