Embedding Institutional Data Curation Services in Research (EIDCSR) project - 1 views

  •  
    The Embedding Institutional Data Curation Services in Research (EIDCSR) project arises from the range of activities carried out through an Oxford scoping study, a cross-agency collaborative effort to scope the requirements to manage and curate research data generated by Oxford researchers. A requirements gathering exercise took place with around 40 interviews with researchers across disciplines. Service units in Oxford were also consulted to identify their data management services and identify gaps in service provision. Moreover, the project contributed to the UK Research Data Service feasibility study and the JISC funded DISC-UK DataShare project.

Digital Preservation Summit 2011 - 1 views

  •  
    Experts exchange their practical knowledge and experiences on digital preservation.

    Day 1 - 19.10.2011
    "GETTING READY FOR DIGITAL PRESERVATION"

    The necessary "preparations" and fundamental decisions are the most underestimated challenges of digital preservation. But especially those tasks are bumps in the road which, if they aren't addressed early on, will remain constant challenges through the process of digital preservation.

    For those reasons the first block of the conference is dedicated to different aspects of necessary preparations and fundamental decisions. Experiences made in daily work of libraries and archives are presented and ways of dealing with challenges are communicated to the attendees.

    The following questions should be answered in this block:

    * How can a meaningful contextual and technical selection of holdings for digital preservation be made?
    * Which collections and digital objects should be dealt with first?
    * What expectations do users have in digital preservation? What do those expectations mean for the digital preservation process?
    * Should objects be normalized before ingest / when entering the collection? If so, how? What are recommended formats?
    * What gaps exist between existing digital preservation systems and institutional requirements?
    * What risks exist for different types of data and material?
    * What does the implementation of digital preservation mean for an institution? Which steps need to be considered? What are the challenges?
    * Which aspects of digital preservation are unanswered as of today / what are the main areas of further development, research and action?

    Day 2 - 20.10.2011
    THE INGEST PROCESS FOR DIFFERENT TYPES OF DIGITAL MATERIAL

    Ingest describes the entire process of information transfer into the digital archive. The focus of this presentation block will be practitioner reports about experiences made in the development and implementation of ingest workflows for differe

IEEE CLOUD 2011 - 1 views

  •  
    "Change we are leading" is the theme of CLOUD 2011. Cloud Computing has become a scalable services consumption and delivery platform in the field of Services Computing. The technical foundations of Cloud Computing include Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualizations of hardware and software. The goal of Cloud Computing is to share resources among the cloud service consumers, cloud partners, and cloud vendors in the cloud value chain. The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud offerings such as infrastructure cloud (e.g. hardware, IT infrastructure management), software cloud (e.g. SaaS focusing on middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application cloud (e.g. Application as a Service, UML modeling tools as a service, social network as a service), and business cloud (e.g. business process as a service).

  •  
    Known as "dropbox for scientists", it is a completely free way to transfer large files around the Web. It is a classic problem: you need to send files to someone, or they need to send them to you, and there's no way except email. But they are too large or your administrator won't let you transfer the files by email at all.
