  • Registrations close - Storage and Compute Infrastructure Summit

    Fri, 18 Oct 2019
    Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Brisbane.

    The Summit brings together stakeholders developing the underpinning infrastructures that power research with a view to developing coherent national data systems. The summit provides an opportunity to engage with your colleagues in research organisations, groups and providers that have been busy investigating the questions, issues, current and future trends, gaps and requirements related to research storage and compute infrastructure as part of the ARDC Discovery Activity program. Each of the projects from the Storage and Compute Discovery Activities will present short talks and posters detailing the outcomes and findings. There will also be facilitated discussion sessions on topics of relevance related to future planning for research storage and compute infrastructure.

    The summit is listed as a pre-conference workshop and registration is free via the eResearch Australasia registration process. While the ARDC supports and recommends you attend the eResearch Australasia conference, Australia’s premier eResearch meeting, this is not a requirement for attending the Summit.

    The ARDC Data and Services summit will take place in parallel on Monday 21 October at the same venue.

  • Workshop: Software citation and curation

    Fri, 25 Oct 2019  9:30 am - 11:00 am
    Griffith University Webb Centre (S02), 226 Grey St, South Brisbane QLD 4101, Australia

    An introduction to software citation and curation for those already working with research data, such as data stewards and data librarians.

    Register: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/workshop-software-citation-and-curation-tickets-73520827775

    This workshop is for anyone involved in managing research data.

    Good management of data is critical for reproducible and reusable research, but data has limited use without the software to analyse it. Research software is valuable and should be managed alongside data.

    A recent survey of UK researchers indicated that 90% use software and 70% could not continue their research without software.

    How can librarians and data stewards apply their skills to offer data and software services?

    Presenter:

    Matthias Liffers (ARDC)

  • GEO Week 2019

    Mon, 4 Nov 2019 - Sat, 9 Nov 2019  
    Canberra ACT, Australia

    Help ensure Earth observations drive productivity & inclusive growth across our economies.
    In November 2019, Ministers from GEO’s 105 Member governments, business leaders, heads of international non-profits and passionate experts will meet in Canberra, Australia for GEO Week 2019 and the GEO Ministerial Summit.

    Canberra means ‘meeting place’ in Ngunnawal, the local indigenous language. Recognizing the history of the land and its traditional custodians, GEO Week will bring together diverse people and cultures to support and sustain our planet and communities.

    Building on the 2015 Mexico City Declaration, GEO Week will focus on accelerating the delivery of GEO’s Strategic Plan and will bring the GEO community together to scale-up the impact of Earth observations.

    The week’s events will ensure that data about our planet becomes a core input to strategic decision making and key to day-to-day economic, environmental and development decisions.

    An investment that delivers big returns
    All economic and business decisions must now consider how the planet is changing, and Earth observation data can improve our economies from top to bottom. GEO Week 2019 and the GEO Ministerial Summit will highlight how investments in Earth observation make this possible, delivering major returns on investment to our economies and communities.

    Global impact on global agendas
    Participants will explore how the integration of Earth observation data into our digital economies is key to driving progress on the big three global policy frameworks: the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Climate Agreement, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

    Who should attend?
    > Ministers interested in improving the use of Earth observation data and technology for inclusive and sustained economic development.

    > Representatives of GEO Member governments and Participating Organizations interested in advancing GEO’s mission.

    > Contributors to GEO Work Programme initiatives and activities interested in showcasing their achievements.

    > Industry leaders from the tech, space and geospatial sectors interested in promoting their capabilities, networking and creating new partnerships.

    > International organizations interested in advancing the availability and use of Earth observations in support of their mission.

    > Scientists and technical experts interested in learning and sharing their knowledge to support long-term sustainable development.

  • Data for our planet: Increasing the use and value of global information infrastructures to support resilient cities, disaster risk reduction and infectious diseases

    Mon, 4 Nov 2019  9:00 am - 10:00 am
    Fitzroy Room - National Convention Center, Canberra

    Abstract

    Accessing and integrating data from heterogeneous sources is a significant barrier facing evidence-based responses to global grand challenges. To address this ISC-CODATA is preparing an international, coordinating research program; ESIP has developed a community of practice around earth science data standards; and ENVRI aims to align and share FAIR compliant in-situ data and services. This workshop will 1) invite the GEO community to engage with these initiatives; 2) examine specific challenges relating to data accessibility, interoperability and reusability (FAIR); and 3) examine these issues around a set of pilot case studies, including infectious diseases, resilient cities and disaster risk reduction.

    Grand challenges need to access and integrate data from many different sources. Discovery and interoperability mechanisms are frequently suboptimal. Time and space is usually a key to integration, and remote sensing and in-situ Earth observation data play a crucial role. The session will allow detailed exploration of the issues in relation to case studies of significance to the GEO community. The workshop will explore the applicability and potential of the FAIR principles, ‘fitness for use’ criteria, Operational Readiness Levels, alignment of metadata specifications, and data cubes to contribute towards the solutions needed to assist data integration.

    International Science Council - ISC; CODATA – Committee on Data of the ISC; ESIP - Earth Science Information Partners (US)/ARDC - Australian Research Data Commons/The National Committee for Data in Science (NCDiS) of the AAS - Australian Academy of science; AuScope; NCI - National Computational Infrastructure (Australia); CSIRO (Australia), The European Environmental Research Infrastructure Community (ENVRI

  • Downscaling GEO: Delivering impact at national and local levels

    Tue, 5 Nov 2019  10:30 am - 12:30 pm
    Nicholls Room, National Converntion Center, Canberra

    Abstract:

    Through the efforts of GEO’s Members and Participating Organisations, availability of EO data has increased, and there are now examples of how EO can be put to work across almost every domain.  However, the delivery of GEO’s vision will depend on “downscaling” of this work to national, sub-national and community levels.

    This event will provide a forum to discuss the key policy and governance challenges that currently hold back this “downscaling” and inhibit full adoption of EO-enabled products and services into national and local decision making and program delivery.

    The panel session will provide participants with an opportunity to learn from a diverse range of countries and organizations on the:

    Key role of locally owned analysis capabilities for successful integration of EO data into national policies that drive economic growth and sustainable development;
    Coordinated approaches to skill development in key areas, such as analysis and stewardship of data;
    Role of regional GEOs and platforms such as Digital Earth Africa in supporting countries to put EO data to work in a way that meets their specific needs; and
    Role for the commercial sector in bridging the gap from global datasets and proof of concept methodologies to products and services that are tailored to local needs with accompanying support.
