On Saturday 3 September 2016, Erik Schultes (DTL), Marco Roos (LUMC), Mark Thompson (LUMC), Mark Wilkinson (UPM), and Luiz Bonino (DTL, VU) will organise a workshop about FAIR Data stewardship. The workshop is part of the pre-programme of the 15th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB 2016).
A broad community of stakeholders recently described a set of guiding principles to ensure that scientific data be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR). This workshop will provide an introduction to FAIR Data Stewardship in the context of the European research initiatives. The morning session will provide a brief introduction to the key issues and ample time for discussion. The afternoon session will be devoted to a practical introduction to data ‘FAIRification’ using real-life datasets. Depending on workshop attendance, the practical session may include hands-on coding activity guided by the workshop organizers.
