On April 5, the University of Cincinnati Libraries and IT@UC are thrilled to host the first UC DATA Day. This day-long event will highlight innovative work being done by researchers and present the types of data services available to the research community. In addition, it will provide a forum to discuss data challenges and opportunities at the University of Cincinnati and beyond.
Scheduled for 8:30am-2:30pm in the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center, UC DATA Day will include a full schedule of events all free and open to the public. Keynote speaker Michael Huerta, PhD, from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health (NIH), will highlight his work in making data more discoverable, accessible, usable and open, in addition to speaking on his other areas of program development at the NIH. Other UC DATA Day events will include:
- Cross-disciplinary panels of researchers known for their work with innovative or challenging data of any size – big to small. Each panelist will have approximately 15 minutes to highlight data practices, challenges and future opportunities. Rather than serve as research presentations, the panels will provide a broad audience with knowledge about data practices and challenges.
- Lunchtime panel with service providers whose work supports data practices, including representatives from IT@UC, Office of Research, UC Libraries and more.
The full schedule for the day’s events is available through the event’s website at http://bit.ly/UCDataDay. Seats are limited, so register now to attend – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/UCDATADAY16. Both breakfast and lunch are included for those who register.
