Welcome to the registration site for the 2015 Biennial Meeting of ICPSR Official Representatives! This year’s conference theme is “Delivering Effective Data Stewardship.” Producers of data, seekers of data, curators of data, and preservers of data all play significant and unique roles in the effective collection, description, sharing, and preservation of research data. Delivering data stewardship takes a village!
With over 17 workshops and sessions, this biennial meeting will highlight ICPSR’s core functions highlighting current data collections and data-related tools and exciting new data projects. The meeting will also impart practical approaches and strategies to work with data producers to share data, write data management plans, steward discipline-focused repositories, and locate tools and resources to assist in curating and managing research data.
In addition, this meeting serves as an opportunity for researchers, teaching faculty, librarians, policymakers, and data professionals to gather and share ideas that will aid us as a data community to deliver impact.
Participation in the ICPSR meeting is limited to individuals from ICPSR Member Institutions and invited presenters and guests. There are no registration fees for this meeting.
