Doctoral Candidate Ashley Sands and Data Scientist Milena Golshan presented our KI team paper Data Management in the Long Tail: Social and Technical Opportunities at IDCC 2016. As part of an NSF project to conceptualize the Institute for Empowering Long Tail Research, we explored the data management opportunities offered by Software as a Service (SaaS) for small and medium-sized laboratories. The paper was a runner-up for Best Research Paper. The conference took place in Amsterdam, February 23-24.
Prior to the IDCC presentation, Sands and Golshan gave two other talks in The Netherlands. On February 16, Sands and Golshan presented at the DANS institute (Data Archiving and Networked Services) colloquium a talk titled What is Data Management? Interpreting Stakeholder Expectations for Archiving and Serving Research Data. Sands presented case studies from the KI team research work, and findings from her dissertation in progress while Golshan led a document analysis exercise. On February 18, the pair gave a presentation titled Case Studies of Data Practices in Distributed Research Collaborations for the e-Humanities Group where they presented KI team analysis of astronomy and earth sciences case studies.
