WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This one-day workshop is a must for anyone involved in creating, managing, or using scientific data. The Open Data movement dramatically is changing the flows as well as the roles of all involved.   This workshop will explore the technical, financial, political, and social/cultural forces that must be considered when assessing the quality and integrity of the data.  We will investigate with major stakeholders how can we rely on the quality and integrity of the data that are becoming increasingly available.  Mark your calendar now to reserve the date of this informative workshop.  Registration is now open to accommodate those who need to pay before the new fiscal year begins.

THE FOCUS OF THE DAY
The day opens with a keynote on the current landscape of data quality and integrity, including a discussion of policies, major stakeholders, needs, and issues. This will be followed by in depth discussion of the laws and policies that impact data quality and a speaker panel of data creators, funders, and managers. 

After a hosted lunch, speakers from the publishing, aggregating and archiving communities discuss their roles and several of the tools and applications they use to support data quality and integrity, as well as an exploration of basic requirements and expectations, assessment of user needs, and establishing quality benchmarks. 

The day closes with a facilitated discussion of speakers and attendees of the day’s material, possible applications, and the envisioned future.  Discussion will include the challenges, identified gaps and next steps in building a more robust data cycle.
