2017 Biennial ICPSR Meeting: Building for a Data-Drtiven Future

 

 

October 11—13, 2017
Ann Arbor

Registration for the 2017 ICPSR Biennial Meeting is open; several workshops have limited seating.
This year's conference theme is "Building for a Data-Driven Future." Now more than ever, producers, curators, and users of research data are retooling to ensure data are available today and into the future. From the data management systems they use, to the metadata they produce, to the data sharing and preservation repositories they utilize, to the data-sharing policies they develop, members of the data community are building a foundation for discoverability and access to re-usable research data for the future. And the future starts today!
This meeting also serves as an opportunity for researchers, teaching faculty, librarians, policymakers, and data professionals to gather and share ideas that will aid us as a data community to deliver greater research impact.
Participation in the ICPSR meeting is limited to individuals from ICPSR Member Institutions and invited presenters and guests. There are no registration fees for this meeting.
Workshops begin on Wednesday, October 11 and the meeting concludes at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, October 13.

Training Opportunity

These resources from ICPSR are made up of sequenced activities. While assignments may be created using a few of the exercises in a set, the full package must be used to meet the stated learning objectives for each. Exercise Sets are often appropriate for Research Methods courses and more substantively focused courses.
