This hybrid event will bring together the materials community to discuss the importance of research data collection, storage and sharing, and examine related challenges.
Chairs: Prof João Fonseca, Dr Chris Race
Moderators: Dr Kathy Christofidou and Dr Ed Pickering
Venue: Royce Hub Building and Virtual
This event is aimed at materials science researchers (from any discipline) who collect, store, analyse and share experimental data associated with their samples: e.g., optical images, SEM images, property measurements, etc. The workshop will share examples of best practice and current initiatives in the area, and begin to formulate a list of actions to enable better data management practices.
9:30 – 10:00
Arrival, tea & coffee (for those attending in person)
10:00 – 10:15
10:15 – 10:55
Why should data management be important to materials science researchers?
10:55 – 11:35
What data should materials scientists capture, and how should they be stored?
11:35 – 12:15
How should data processing and analysis considerations influence our data management practices (capture, storage, sharing)?
12:15 – 13:00
13:00 – 13:40
Sharing examples of good practice
13:40 – 14:20
How should we store our research data, and when should we delete it?
14:20 – 15:00
Should all data be shared, and if so, when and where?
15:00 – 15:15
15:15 – 15:55
What cultural changes are needed to facilitate our data management ambitions?
15:55 – 16:25
Opportunity for final discussion
16:25 – 16:30
