Canberra Data Citation Workshop ANDS

Dear Colleagues
You are all invited to attend the following:
Canberra Data Citation Workshop ANDS
Wednesday, 9 April 2014 from 9:15 AM to 12:30 PM (EST)

Event Details
Venue: RG Menzies Building 15, McDonald Room on this campus map
Getting there & parking:
Please be aware that parking may be scarce. Bus, bike, taxi, parking
Kindly hosted by The Australian National University, this networking event is offered to colleagues working in support of research data management who want to: step back and think about data citation, perhaps share big or small thoughts, take in some information, and take away an idea of something "to do next".
The workshop will have speakers to help stimulate discussion, and plenty of time for those good exchanges that bubble up with peers when you're away from a desk.
Note: your institution does not need to be minting DOIs to attend this workshop. DOIs are preferred practice but not mandatory in any way for effective data citation.
Who will be sharing their experiences and perspectives?
  • Australian National Data Service ANDS
  • Ms Roxanne Missingham, University Librarian (Chief Scholarly Information Services) - ANU
  • Ms Cynthia Love, Executive Manager, Information Services - CSIRO
  • Dr Virginia Barbour, Medicine Editorial Director - PLoS
  • Ms Pia Waugh -
  • Dr Sue Fyfe, Director, Data Governance & Services Section - Geoscience Australia
Who will be there?
Universities, Government departments, Research Institutions
Librarians, Research Office staff, Data Managers, Research Support Staff -- anyone with an interest in supporting the citation and reuse of data in their organisation.

Why come along?
Building a culture of data citation takes time, effort and some reflecting with peers and information sharing. Reading about data citation is one thing, whereas changing business processes and assisting with changes in scholarly communication needs a community of thinkers and doers.  Hear from speakers and share thoughts with each other about : data citation practices, support services, cultural norms and business processes.
About your registration
The workshop is free to attend and will run from 9.30-12.30 (registration open from 9.00).
As places are limited, if you register, and then find you can't attend, please email so we can open up your place to someone on the waitlist.
