09.04.2019 17:38

The Summer School, co-organized by Freiburg (RDMG, eScience, chair for communication systems) and Ulm (OMI), had the objective of providing a broad overview of handling data management and different aspects of research data management over the complete life cycle of the data. The importance of data for science and the future development of the scientific landscape were also covered.

The Summer School "Research Data Management in Data Intensive Computing" (Bericht der UFPR/Curitiba) presented concepts and strategies for the preservation and accessibility of electronic research data over longer periods of time, which also take functional questioning, documentation and appropriate accumulation of meta data into consideration. Furthermore, the ares of planning of archiving and access strategies, the characterization of artefacts and, lastly, cost and refinancing models were discussed. Another focus lay on the (technical) challenges that appear when handling big amounts of data and the effective provision for computing. This included points such as the design of storage systems and the planning of the linkage of large compute infrastructures such as clouds or HPC clusters.

The Summer School has been embedded into teaching at UFPR, or the local computer science, respectively through different ways: For this, the courses were split into three blocks. Workshops for students (Master/PhD) in the morning block. This one was, as planned, taught in the morning. Three content-related modules were taught as continuous morning courses. Here, there was a smaller group of computer science students. Due to the classification as a general PhD qualification programm, the section "General FDM" was defined as an afternoon/early evening course. The event was announced throughout the university and was recorded. The third block included three computer science PhD colloquia wednesdays, in the evening (two hours incl. discussion) as well as information on studying and PhD in Germany.
