On January 20th DANS organizes with its visiting fellows Andrew Treloar (ANDS) and Herbert van de Sompel (LANL) the workshop ‘Riding the Wave and The Scholarly Archive of the Future’. Interested in data management and -archiving are welcome to sign up.
The starting point of the workshop is the report 'Riding the Wave'. This report provides a picture of the future for an electronic infrastructure that allows sustainable access and (re-)use of scientific data. The workshop looks at which part of this vision has already been completed, what challenges may come into play for the scientific community and what the implications of this vision are for the role of scientific archives.
The afternoon consists of a number of presentations and a open discussion session. During his presentation Andrew Treloar will zoom into the broader context and the types of objects to be archived in the new era. Herbert van de Sompel will focus on the different technologies (OAI-ORE, Hyperlink, Memento) which are now being developed supporting this. DANS will explain its vision for the future of data archives and federated data infrastructure.
The workshop will take place on January 20 from 13:00 to 16:30 at NWO, Java Building, Room 300 in The Hague. Registration for the workshop can be found online.
