Data-Facing Track

Do you help researchers compute with data?  The Data-Facing Track of the People Network brings together people from research computing groups, libraries, research institutes, and other organizations who support data-enabled research.  Many of us are also Researcher-Facing, but this track is an opportunity to discuss the varied challenges of working with data.

Topics include:

  • Data science support
  • Bioinformatics, statistics, GIS, and other support
  • Data visualization
  • Data management and curation
  • Data workflows
  • Data transfer and networks
  • Data collection and production
  • Working with big data
  • And more, as determined by our members!

We connect via monthly calls and an email list.
