FYI, this conference and call for proposals may interest you!  -Jon

The Research Data Access and Preservation (RDAP) Summit
<https://www.asis.org/rdap/>, to be held April 19-21, 2017 in Seattle, WA,
invites calls for proposals from managers, users, and generators of digital
data from all sectors, including industry, academia, government, and
cultural heritage centers.

RDAP 2017 will focus on the theme “*Meeting challenges in the data world*.”

RDAP will include panels on the topics of curating difficult data, data
reusability, publisher perspectives on data, intellectual property issues
surrounding data, and digital humanities data. *The planning committee is
seeking proposals for short presentations that complement these topics in
an additional panel*.

Potential proposal topics could include:

   - Representing data (visually, etc…)
   - Privacy/ethics and data
   - Data as a commodity
   - Teaching data information literacy in curricula
   - The role of data curation in data science
   - Should data be treated as a collection?
   - What happens when physical objects are digitized - what kind of
   stewardship are the digital objects given compared to physical?

Please submit proposals via this form
November 20.

Questions can be directed to the RDAP Program Chairs, Brianna Marshall (
brianna.marshall at wisc.edu) and Yasmeen Shorish (shorisyl at jmu.edu)

Thank you!
