DataLad meeting (mini-workshop), 30 November 2022
(rescheduled from 23 Nov)

We will focus on a subset of DataLad functionality (data publication). This will also be an opportunity to try out the new graphical user interface for DataLad. We will set out with a goal of publishing a subset of anatomical & behavioral animal data and analyse what advantages DataLad can offer in this regard.

Meeting plan (estimated time: 3 hrs):
  • introduction: what & why of DataLad
  • practical part: publishing with DataLad (incl. graphical interface!)
  • Q&A

Research Data Management with DataLad (3rd ed.), 10-11 November 2022

This is the third edition of our workshop. The scope and outline remain the same (see descriptions of previous editions below).

PI Workshop: research data management, 19 August 2022

This workshop focuses on decentralised research data management from the point of view of project leaders. It is an opportunity to discuss homogenized data access and management across SFB, structured data organization and expanded availability of metadata, and automatic generation of SFB data portal.

Research Data Management with DataLad (2nd ed.), 27-28 April 2022

This is the second edition of our workshop. The outline remains the same (see below), and the contents are an evolution based on the first installment.

The workshop focuses on technical and conceptual aspects alike, and aims to equip the participants with skills they could transfer to the real-world data collected during their research. It is based on "code-along" exercises; however, no previous experience with programming, command line, or version control will be assumed.

Again, this is an online workshop, split into two half-days, and accredited by SFB's graduate schools (GSfBS and IPHS/IPMM).

Research Data Management with DataLad 12-13 January 2022

The goal of this workshop is to present a set of good practices in research data management, explain version control, and to introduce the core features of DataLad software - a data management multitool that can assist in handling the entire life cycle of digital objects. The workshop tackles issues ranging from “what is a good file name” to “how to publish a version-controlled dataset”, and is divided into four parts:

  • Content tracking with DataLad
  • Structuring data
  • Remote collaboration
  • Dataset management

The workshop is based around code-along exercises; however, no experience with programming, command line, or version control is required.

Signups and details were announced through the sfb1451-erc-all mailing list. This is an online workshop, and counts towards activities recognised by SFB's Integrated Research Training Group.
