Implementing FAIR Data for People and Machines: Impacts and Implications

This special one-day workshop for data and information professionals, information technologists, and for disciplinary scientists interested in effective data sharing is focused on the wave of activities related to making data “FAIR” (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable). We will focus on the implementations and ultimate impacts and implications, especially as data is made FAIR for humans and machines.

The workshop will provide a venue for attendees to collaborate with their peers and hear from leading experts.
