Research Data Access and Preservation

Phoenix, AZ  |  Hyatt Regency  |  April 9-10, 2010
In cooperation with the Coalition for Networked Information
Research Data Access and Preservation   
Researchers in all fields generate and analyze enormous quantities of digital data. 
In fields ranging throughout the sciences and humanities, managing, preserving, and 
sharing these data require substantial capital and human resources and new kinds of 
information professionals who are able to integrate technology, content, and policy skills. 
This summit aims to bring together leaders in data centers, laboratories, and libraries 
in different organizational and disciplinary settings to share ideas and techniques for 
managing, preserving, and sharing large-scale research data repositories with an eye toward 
achieving infrastructure-independent access and stewardship. The summit will engage three 
kinds of leaders: those from projects with experience in integrating high-performance 
technologies; those from large scale collaboratories in science, social science, 
and the humanities; and those from institutions coping with the challenges of integrating 
different technologies and data collections.
