Metadata for Models Workshop

January 20, 2017

Monday 10am-12pm. The North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) and Axiom Data Science will host a metadata workshop at the 2017 Alaska Marine Science Symposium. The workshop will focus on developing a set of best practices for data management and documentation related to model-based research projects. This workshop aims to foster a discussion between modelers, funders, and data managers, with the goal of identifying best practices for a practical, implementable data management policy for modeling-based research projects.

Monday 10am-12pm. The North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) and Axiom Data Science will host a metadata workshop at the 2017 Alaska Marine Science Symposium. The workshop will focus on developing a set of best practices for data management and documentation related to model-based research projects. This workshop aims to foster a discussion between modelers, funders, and data managers, with the goal of identifying best practices for a practical, implementable data management policy for modeling-based research projects. NPRB will present the goals and intent for data and metadata archival and sharing and outline scenarios for distinct categories of model-based projects. Axiom will present a general template for documenting and preserving the outputs from modeling-based projects. Participants are asked to actively contribute to the discussion and provide ideas and suggestions for establishing best practices and guidelines. Modelers and other domain experts are invited to attend. The topics covered at the workshop include: current approach to data and metadata review and archival for modeling practices, expected deliverables and preservation needs, documentation needs throughout the workflow, and the appropriate content and format for metadata.
