I’m in Princeton for the NSF-sponsored workshop on Research Data Lifecycle Management. I’m on the organizing committee, and it’s gratifying to see the room full of interesting people ready to spend the next day and a half discussing this timely topic. The participants are a really interesting mix of technologists, faculty members, and librarians (and of course those categories are not mutually exclusive).
The idea of the workshop is to try to come up with a set of actionable best practice recommendations that can be used to move the state of the art forward. I’ll try to keep up with activities here on the blog, and you can also follow along by watching the #rdlmw tag on Twitter, or by watching the live video stream at The web page for the event is at:
