R.I.P DATA: How should research data be selected, stored and deleted?

1 October @ 9 h 00 min - 2 October @ 16 h 30 min

Preserving research data over the short, medium and long term is a complex process, involving a wide range of economic, technological, environmental and heritage issues, as well as various legal obligations. It also requires the mobilization of numerous players to define a strategic policy for infrastructures, storage tools, scientific communities and institutional managers. The aim of archiving, sharing and preserving data over the long and short term is, of course, to guarantee the availability of data, enable its reuse and ensure its preservation for future generations. But for scientific communities, it is above all a question that is as complex as it is crucial: which research data deserve to be preserved and shared, and for how long? This seminar, organized by the DoReMITI (Données de REcherche de la Mission pour les Initiatives Transverses et Interdisciplinaires) working group, will alternate feedback, presentations and round-table discussions, inviting us to reflect on the selection, preservation and deletion of research data and, as suggested by its title “R.I.P Data”, to rightly consider the ultimate fate of research data (may it rest in peace!). These three half-days of exchange and discussion will enable us to take stock of the state of the art in research data archiving practices in our laboratories, and to gauge the extent to which communities are developing their skills in this area. The event will take place from October 1 to 2 at the Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme in Aix en Provence. More information on the official website for the program and registration.
