Event description

Description

The second PresQT workshop will be held at Centre Mont-Royal collocated w/the Research Data Alliance 10th Plenary meeting.

The IMLS grant funded library leadership planning grant project Preservation Quality Tool (PresQT)'s goal and objectives are to develop technical and administrative implementation plans for open source Data and Software Preservation Quality Tools or toolsuites that can be jointly developed by interested parties. This will be the 2nd of a pair of workshops. The first PresQT workshop was held in the US in May 2017. (More information available at : https://presqt.crc.nd.edu/)

Workshop Format:

  • Welcome and Short Introductory talk about aims of PresQT
  • Update on PresQT Needs Analysis early survey results
  • Lightning talks* (5-10 min ea, See deadlines below, Submit an Abstract! )
  • Coffee/Tea Break
  • Roundtable Breakouts: Potential groups may include Needs analysis/survey, Tech recommendation report team, Implementation Funding, Features Brainstorming
  • Panel Discussion
  • Thank you and Short Sumnary of Next steps, meetings & outputs for PresQT

Workshop organizers will make short presentations of PresQT's recent data and software preservation tool Needs Analysis survey results, and then we will participate with attendees in facilitated round-table discussions and engage in brain-storming sessions that will engage stakeholders to share actionable input that can inform tool development and feature priorities.

Workshop Participants will present lightning talks and engage in panel conversation on system architecture alternatives, user experience opportunities, and prioritize functional requirements for the proposed tool(s).

We want everyone to have an opportunity to share their needs and inspiration! Breakout groups and lightning talks provide an opportunity to speak about your experiences, opinions, and priorities related to data and software preservation needs.
