Co-Editor of “Recommendations for Implementing a Virtual Layer forManagement of the Complete Life Cycle of Scientific Data” will keynote

This special one-day workshop for scientists and data and information professionals is focused on characterizing and managing digital representations of research objects (DRO) including publications, data sets, software, audio, video, and specimens in a dynamic digital science ecosystem. This workshop will explore how the challenges of characterizing DROs at scale (in volume and over time) are being met now or might be met in future cyberinfrastructure designs.

The Workshop will provide a venue for attendees to network with their peers and hear from leading experts.
