The 2017 National Data Integrity Conference is back! On October 5th and 6th, we're gathering a diverse group of experts to talk through some of the biggest challenges facing people who work with data. The event will be hosted at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. 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.

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)!

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.

This conference is inexpensive, energizing, and something all your friends are going to.

This year's theme: The Human Side of Data: from societal impacts to everyday practice.

We’re now accepting proposals for presentations that address the annual meeting theme. Topics could include:

  • Good data management practices
  • Ethical challenges in data research
  • Data quality and integrity
  • Consent
  • Privacy
  • Reproducibility/repeatability
  • Datasploitation (the exploitation of data from vulnerable populations)
  • Encryption
  • Anonymization and data sharing
  • The politics of research data
  • Algorithmic discrimination
  • Critical data studies
  • Other
