Common Challenges, Shared Solutions: 2018 McMaster Research Data Forum
On Wednesday, 12-December, the McMaster Library, RHPCS, MacDATA, and the Tier 3 Research Data Management IT Committee will be hosting an event called “Common Challenges, Shared Solutions: 2018 McMaster Research Data Forum”. The purpose of this event is to encourage discussion around the common challenges that researchers face with their data and promote the development and use of shared solutions to these needs.
The event will begin with a keynote address by Jeff Moon, Director of Canada’s Portage Network, focused on the evolving national landscape of research data management and infrastructure. This session will be followed by an interactive panel discussion, where McMaster researchers and service providers discuss their research data challenges in the exploration of common solutions.
In the afternoon session, facilitators from Statistics Canada will provide a workshop on disclosure control methods using confidential microdata.
