  • Enabling global data discovery through structured data markup: Workshop

    Tue, 17 Mar 2020  9:00 am - 5:30 pm
    Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006, Australia

    The workshop is a co-located event of the RDA Plenary 15. It is scheduled on the day before the RDA P15, at MCEC -  the same location where the RDA P15 is held.


    Registration:

    Increasing amounts of open data are being made available through a growing number of data repositories. Consequently, it is becoming more challenging for researchers to find relevant data, especially where desired data is dispersed across several repositories. On the other hand, web search tools have almost become a de-facto information and data discovery tool for researchers. This workshop will address the above issue of how to make data discoverable through aggregated search via existing web architecture.

    To enable broad discovery and access to research data, some data repositories have begun leveraging data discovery services from commercial search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing etc., by embedding structured data markup in metadata landing pages using vocabularies such as schema.org, DCAT, and specific extensions. As more data repositories implement this approach, there arise new challenges:

    • First, there is a lack of consistent implementation across data repositories, and guidelines for those who would like to pursue this path.
    • Second, vocabulary adopted or indexed by major web search engines are intentionally minimalistic, there is no evaluation if this minimum set of vocabulary meets the needs for research data. If not, how we can extend it and get extensions accepted.
    • Thirdly, and most importantly, how can the research data community take advantage of this strategy. For instance, explore new methods for metadata syndication and data discovery via the web architecture with a common set of vocabulary. The research data community can discuss and agree on what can be indexed, linked and build knowledge graphs for new data discovery applications; applications such as aggregated search across resources of a specific domain or related domains relevant to a research need, applications that can support a spectrum of data search needs from free text search, JSON API to SPARQL queries.

    This workshop will bring together data repository managers, data managers, developers, and data technologists to exchange experience and lessons learnt from publishing metadata through structured data markup, as well as determining the advantages for this research data infrastructure community to use this data publishing trend.

    The workshop is sponsored by Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC), in partnership with the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) and the RDA research metadata schemas WG.

  • Certifying Trusted Repositories: sharing with and learning from RDA

    Tue, 17 Mar 2020  3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    Jim Potter Room (G16), Old Physics Building (#128). - University of Melbourne - Parkville, VIC 3053 - Australia

    This is a co-located event at the Research Data Alliance 15 Plenary.

    ===

    Organised by ARDC, and the Australian Trusted Data Repository (TDR) Community, this event is a two hour event for the Australian Trusted Data Repository community to (1) meet in person, and (2) to exchange and learn from the international community, including CoreTrustSeal management, which arose from the Repository Audit and Certification DSA–WDS Partnership WG under the Research Data Alliance.

    The session will (1) engage the Australian community around current trusted data certification activity, (2) make the most of international experts travelling to Australia for the RDA plenary and (3) where appropriate induct interested attendees who are new to the community into the activity and approaches of the Australian community.

    Thanks to AURIN for hosting.

  • RDA 15th Plenary Meeting – Australia

    Wed, 18 Mar 2020 - Fri, 20 Mar 2020  
    Melbourne

    https://ardc.edu.au/events/rda-15th-plenary-meeting-australia/

    The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is delighted to announce that its 15th Plenary Meeting will take place from 18 - 20 March 2020 in Melbourne, Australia, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, MCEC (https://mcec.com.au/).

    The event will be hosted by CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) with the support of the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). As one of the founding regions of RDA in 2013, Australia has always been a strong supporter and driver of RDA. Organising the Plenary meeting in Australia offers regional researchers and data professionals an opportunity to engage and work with the RDA community, as well as offering the international data community the unique chance to learn more about the exciting activities and developments in the Australian data landscape.

    The RDA Plenary meeting will be organised in conjunction with the annual C3DIS (Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science), taking place in Melbourne on 16 - 18 March 2020. C3DIS aims to build a national community of practice of scientists, researchers, and computing, data and information management specialists. All of these professionals share a common interest: the production of breakthrough science outcomes that require large scale, complex computations and analyses to be carried out over massive data sets.
