Unfortunately, attendance for the event is already fully booked, but the programme will be of interest http://www.fcrd.fi/activities/data-citation/
 
Data Curation and Citation Workshop, Taipei, 5 Dec
The 2016 Data Curation and Citation Workshop in Taiwan will be held on 5 December and will take place at the National Taiwan University Library.  As with some of the other workshops in this international series, the subject of Data Curation is also emphasized.  It is felt by the organisers that given the current stage of development in Taiwan, research libraries and specially data librarians form a major audience for the issues related to the production, management, curation and use of research datasets.
 
Speakers include Christine Borgman (University of California, Los Angeles), Louise Corti (UKDA), Chiu-Chuang Chou (Senior Data Librarian, University of Wisconsin-Madison), Prof. SHAO Guangzhao (Ocean University), Dr. Wang Yuhuang (Central Research Institute), Prof. Lin Qixiu (Director of the Department of Library and Information Science) and Prof. Liao Peishan (Academician of the Academia Sinica).
