Darth Data: Awaken the forces to rescue old data for new discoveries!
IN015 Session Description:
Research and discovery in the natural sciences, particularly for
changes in our planet, is empowered by gathering, mining, and reusing
However, as researchers increasingly realize that much of our 20th
Century and older scientific record
is no longer accessible and funding for activity in data rescue has
However data cannot be rescued for the sake of the data alone. What are
the question or
problems that need to be answered with this data? In order to continue
to attract funding
it is critical that we show tangible value derived from this rescued data.
This session solicits papers from those, who have rescued dark data and
sustainable preservation. Individual case studies are welcome,
particularly those that
demonstrate new scientific discoveries from the rescued data. Papers on
data rescue methodologies
will be accepted, especially those that show how tangible value is
demonstrated to funders.
Deadline to submit is August 3rd (a week from Wednesday) 23:59 EDT.
Please feel free to share this invitation with others.
