2017 Data ID Service Workshop

September 13-14th, 2017
Office of Scientific and Techincal Information, Oak Ridge, TN

The Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) will hold a 2-day research data focused workshop September 13-14th, 2017 at OSTI in Oak Ridge, TN.  The goal of the workshop is to share information about the DOE Data ID Service and Interagency Data ID Service, gain a deeper understanding of researchers' data needs, and determine how to better support those needs. 

We want to tackle evolving changes in the data world that may influence the growth and enhancements to the products and services we provide. We also want to discuss issues that data researchers are beginning to confront.
