The National Data Integrity Conference

NDIC 2017

The Human Side of Data:

From societal impacts to everyday practice

October 5th-6th

Colorado State University

Lory Student Center

North Ballroom

The National Data Integrity Conference is back! We're gathering a diverse group of experts to talk through some of the biggest challenges facing people who work with data.

  • Theme: The Human Side of Data: from the societal impacts to everyday practice.
  • Location: North Ballroom, Lory Student Center, Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.
  • Dates: Oct 5-6, 2017
  • Pre-conference Data Carpentry Workshop: Oct 3-4, 2017
  • Submit a presentation proposal! (Details below)

Over the last two years, researchers, technologists, administrators, grant funders, librarians, research integrity officers, students, and faculty alike have met to share their data-related projects, ideas, and solutions. One of the main benefits of coming to a conference like this is that you will hear from multiple people outside of your discipline and be exposed to new problems and approaches to solving them that you've never heard before.

 

Data Carpentry Workshop

For those of you who want to learn some hands-on data skills, we're hosting a two-day Data Carpentry Workshop on October 3rd and 4th in the Morgan Library at CSU. No previous experience necessary! Led by trained instructors, participants will learn basic data organization, cleaning, management, analysis, and visualization, using some powerful tools: SQL and R. Come to the Data Carpentry Workshop, the National Data Integrity Conference, or both (both is the best option here)!

  • Good data management practices
