Meeting Theme and Objectives
The 2017 meeting theme, “Data Discoverability, Reproducibility, and Sustainability”, will bring together stakeholders to explore current advancements in these areas. Community talks and posters that explore broad topics of discoverability, reproducibility and sustainability are invited. Some examples are provided below:
Data Discoverability: this theme focuses on providing access to distributed data across heterogeneous systems in efforts for aggregating, disseminating, and linking data and related research materials.
- Describing, Documenting, and Representing Data
- Connecting journal articles to datasets to repositories
- Distinguishing between publishing, data, preservation repositories
Reproducibility: this theme focuses on enabling research data to be used, reused, and duplicated in order for current and future researchers to understand, reproduced, and build on existing research data.
- Best Practices, Guidelines, and Standards
- Procedures, Tools, and Workflows
- Projects, Prototypes, and Use Cases
Sustainability: this theme focuses on implementing components, building blocks, and synergies necessary for the development, growth, and extensibility of projects throughout the project lifecycle and post-funding support.

Tours last approximately 45 minutes and include a full tasting and cocktail. The cost is $10 per person to be paid on the day provided we have sufficient numbers. If you are registered for attending the DUG meeting and wish to join this event, please indicate your interest by filling our a quick form here.
A block of rooms had been held at the GSA per diem rate of $104/night at the following hotels. The blocks will be held until July 7, 2017 or until they are filled, whichever comes first. The group rate has been coordinated through ESIP so if the hotel asks for a group name, please give ESIP and not DataONE.
