Monday, Nov. 14, 2011 — 8:30am to 4:00pm. The University at Buffalo’s Center for Tomorrow. H. Austin Booth, the Vice Provost for University Libraries at the University at Buffalo, invites librarians and others interested in data management issues to attend this free, day-long overview of the challenges and opportunities involved in managing research data. Scientific progress is enhanced by the sharing of research data. However, much of the data that underlies published research remains inaccessible. This symposium will explore ways that librarians, researchers and IT staff are developing more effective ways to manage, share and preserve the massive amounts of data upon which much scholarly research is based. The topic is particularly timely as many grant funding agencies, including the NSF, now require that grant applicants include data management plans with their applications. Featured speakers include Dr. Francine Berman, Dr. Barry Smith, Lisa Johnston, Edward Corrado and Mark Ludwig.
