ISPS Sponsors Campus-Wide Event on Research Data

ISPS is a co-sponsor of a one-day event on research data at Yale, which will be held on September 20, 2013 at the TEAL classroom on 17 Hillhouse.

Yale Day of Data is a day-long event that brings researchers together across the sciences and social sciences.

This event draws from the experiences of faculty to explore the common themes and intersections linking data-intensive science together—including challenges posed by the ever-increasing complexity of data, increased expectations from funders, and heightened attention to data as a research product.

The Day of Data will include opening Remarks by Provost Ben Polak; Faculty Panels on which faculty will discuss their research’s relationship to data; an Administrator Panel which will include Susan Gibbons (University Librarian), Len Peters (University CIO), Carolyn Slayman (Deputy Dean, Academic and Scientific Affairs), and James Antony (Associate Provost); a Poster Session in which research groups will showcase interesting and innovative ways they are using and/or managing data within their labs; and a Service Showcase which will feature staff members who support the data life cycle at Yale, such as data librarians, ITS staff, the StatLab, the ISPS data archive, and the Peabody Museum.

In addition to sponsoring the event, ISPS takes an active part in this exciting day: ISPS Faculty Fellow Greg Huber, will be presenting on one of the panels, and the ISPS Data Archive will be featured in the “service showcase.”
