Please join us for this year’s Data Seal of Approval conference, which is open to all:
Theme: Data Seal of Approval Conference 2013
Date: Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Location: Ann Arbor, MI, on the campus of the University of Michigan
The Data Seal of Approval is an initiative to provide basic certification to data repositories. Receiving the DSA signifies that data are being safeguarded in compliance with community standards and will remain accessible into the future. The DSA and its quality guidelines are relevant to researchers, organizations that archive data, and users of the data.
We have an interesting program planned for the conference. Topics will include:
- Information on the Data Seal of Approval, including how to apply for the DSA
- The World Data System and how it compares with the DSA
- Case studies
- The Research Data Alliance (RDA) work on certification
Speakers will include experts from the field of digital preservation. The full DSA conference program can be found here: http://www.datasealofapproval.org/?q=node/92
