Event Name

DDDWG Research Data Management Workshop

Start Date 26th May 2017
End Date 26th May 2017

This is the third and final Workshop organised by the Diffraction Data Deposition Working Group (DDDWG), appointed by the IUCr Executive Committee to define the need for and practicalities of routine deposition of primary experimental data in X-ray diffraction and related experiments. It will take the form of a full-day workshop at the 2017 American Crystallographic Association Meeting with lectures from crystallographic practitioners, data management specialists and standards maintainers.

Objective: This workshop has two plenary sessions:

  • What every experimentalist needs to know about recording essential metadata of primary (raw) diffraction data
    This will include: sample preparation and characterization; correct recording of instrument axes, correction factors, calibration - instrument manufacturers; attention to diffuse scattering or other interesting "metadata".
  • Research Data Management policy mandates and requirements on Principal Investigators (PIs)
    This will include metadata standardization; data repositories; primary data linking to publications.

There will also be an optional technical session:

  • High-data-rate/high-performance-computing issues of research data management for MX
    For synchrotron- and XFEL-based macromolecular crystallography (MX), high source brightness and the new generation of pixel array detectors raise big-data, high-performance-computing and high-performance-networking issues in research data management. There will be an optional early evening sub-session of the Research Data Management workshop to discuss the high-data-rate/high-performance-computing issues of research data management for MX that will include discussion of appropriate hardware choices and programming techniques that are useful in this context. All registrants for the Research Data Management workshop are welcome to attend this workshop sub-session.
