This one-day workshop is a must for anyone involved in creating, managing,
or using scientific data. The Open Data movement dramatically is changing
the flows as well as the roles of all involved.   This workshop will
explore the technical, financial, political, and social/cultural forces
that must be considered when assessing the quality and integrity of the
data.  We will investigate with major stakeholders how can we rely on the
quality and integrity of the data that are becoming increasingly available.
 Mark your calendar *now* to reserve the date of this informative workshop.
 Registration is now open to accommodate those who need to pay before the
new fiscal year begins.


The day opens with a keynote on the current landscape of data quality and
integrity, including a discussion of policies, major stakeholders, needs,
and issues. This will be followed by in depth discussion of the laws and
policies that impact data quality and a speaker panel of data creators,
funders, and managers.

After a hosted lunch, speakers from the publishing, aggregating and
archiving communities discuss their roles and several of the tools and
applications they use to support data quality and integrity, as well as an
exploration of basic requirements and expectations, assessment of user
needs, and establishing quality benchmarks.

The day closes with a facilitated discussion of speakers and attendees of
the day’s material, possible applications, and the envisioned future.
will include the challenges, identified gaps and next steps in building a
more robust data cycle.


Speakers will be announced very soon.  They are industry and government
experts who will make this day engaging, informative, and constructive.  Mark
your calendars and stay tuned for further developments as the agenda is

CENDI, the Federal STI Managers Group, was formally created in 1985 when a
Memorandum of Understanding was signed by four charter U.S. government
agencies (Commerce, Energy, NASA, and Defense). From this small core of STI
managers, CENDI has grown to its current membership of 13 major science
agencies involved in the dissemination and long-term management of
scientific and technical information.

*NFAIS *(http://www.nfais.org)
The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS™) was
founded in 1958 to advance scholarly, scientific, and professional research
