The National Data Service (NDS) is holding the fifth in a series of workshops aimed at building a national infrastructure for sharing, publishing, and re-using data. The NDS (http://www.nationaldataservice.org/) builds on the data archiving and sharing efforts already underway within specific communities and links them together with a common set of tools designed to facilitate discovery and re-use of science data. With the organizational aspects of the NDS Consortium now complete, the emphasis of this meeting will be on planning our next series of activities, for which we are currently seeking contributions.

Monday April 4, will feature a special tutorial for NDS Labs developers. During the tutorial, participants will go over the process of adding a new component in the NDS Labs environment to make it available as a service, deploying and connecting tools to build new resources, and how to get started with developing against the available technologies. On Monday, there will also be opportunities for pilot project teams and other committees to meet, develop, and plan for ongoing activities. If you are interested in reserving a meeting space, please send an email to info@thenationaldataservice.org.

The plenary program starts on the second day, April 5, and the theme will be The National Data Service (NDS) and the Science Data Ecosystem. The organizing committee is now contacting leaders in the research data community for plenary presentations. The goals for the plenary and  breakout session are:

  • Showcase new services in NDS Labs and provide an update on future development plans.
  • Provide updates from pilot projects currently working in NDS Labs, and develop plans and activities for the duration of the pilots.
  • Discuss potential future pilot projects proposed by participants.
  • Surveying the state of the art with science data consortia, initiatives, and partnerships.
