This Workshop is convened by WDS, in collaboration with the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, the São Paulo Research Foundation, and the Research Data Alliance (RDA). It builds on the success of the First Latin America and Caribbean Workshop in 2018 that explored the data landscape in the region to understand the opportunities and challenges, and discussed how data initiatives could be supported by WDS. The Second Workshop will continue discussions on data management best practices for data repositories and on new trends and perspectives for scientific data systems. However, there will also be a greater emphasis on analyzing and finding concrete solutions to the technical, political, and infrastructure issues identified during the First Workshop.
We invite all researchers and scientists currently involved in scientific data management initiatives in the Latin American and the Caribbean region to present their experiences, research, operations, and projects or programmes at the Workshop. Abstracts for short oral presentations must be in English and should not exceed 3000 characters. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, 31 January Sunday, 16 February.
Online registration is now open. The process is managed by FAPESP, who officially invite you here to join us in São Paulo.
