SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Overview: This notice is issued on behalf of the NITRD Big Data (BD) Interagency Working Group (IWG). Agencies of the NITRD BD IWG are holding a workshop focused on federally supported repositories. Experts from federally supported data repositories, thought-leaders in data science, and representative users will explore future visions for federally supported research data repositories, what the repositories can do to prepare for this future vision, and how to build and strengthen the community of federally supported repositories. The workshop will be held virtually on January 13-15, 2021 from 1 p.m. (ET) to 5 p.m. (ET).

Goal: The workshop will explore future visions for the federally supported repositories to identify opportunities and challenges, areas for cross agency coordination, and ways to build and strengthen the community of federally supported repositories.

Rationale: Data-driven research and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) bring renewed focus on research data repositories. Adapting to the emerging and evolving needs and requirements of future data-intensive research is a challenge facing federally supported data repositories.

Submitted by the National Science Foundation in support of the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) National Coordination Office (NCO) on December 4, 2020.
