*ED060: Virtual Community Platforms and Tools for FAIR Data Management
Planning: Supporting Your Research and Training the Next Generation*
(URL: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm18/prelim.cgi/Session/54333)

* Abstract: *Currently, data management plan (DMP) usage is mostly limited
to research proposals. Clear training, easy-to-access and use tools, and
consistent policies are needed to help scientists develop DMPs and manage
data more broadly and across multiple phases of scientific projects. In an
effort to train current and future generations of scientists, virtual
community platforms and training resources are being developed to provide
services and support to ensure that DMPs are embedded in the scientific
research lifecycle. Well-developed, executable, and machine-actionable DMPs
can ultimately assist data to be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and
Reusable (FAIR). We encourage submissions, especially case studies,
describing training, policies, infrastructural activities, tools and
platforms that leverage and help fulfill DMPs and that enable the
scientific community to make their data FAIR.

>From AGU: “*For the first time, the AGU Fall Meeting will be held in
Washington, D.C., where we will mark the launch AGU’s Centennial.  A wide
variety of events are being planned that will take advantage of this
special location that will showcase our science to the U.S. and
international policy community, students, and public); leverage the local
scientific community, including events with the Smithsonian, National
Academies, and others; and, offer field trips to view the local geology and
research institutes. The Fall Meeting will also offer more workshops as
well as new Tutorial sessions to help students and researchers learn about
new approaches and techniques and introduce exciting science in other
