1st Annual Clowder All Paws - Community Meeting
TimeSunday, July 281pm - 5pm
DescriptionData sharing and publication are essential for modern scientific research, both in terms of leveraging past work towards novel discoveries as well as reproducibility. The proposed workshop will serve to bring together the community of users around Clowder, a novel cross domain open source data sharing, publication, and analysis framework based on the notion of Active Curation, an approach that significantly leverages machine learning and other analysis tools to automate much of the otherwise tedious curation process. A new $5 million NSF Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) award will work to bring together the grass roots cross disciplinary, international, community that has formed around Clowder towards ensuring its sustainability as a true open source framework, with distributed stakeholders and development activities addressing current scientific needs. PEARC offers an ideal venue to bring these very diverse cross disciplinary stakeholders together. The workshop will aim to kick-off an annual meeting, which may be at other venues in subsequent years, bringing together the current Clowder community to share developments, roadmaps, and support new users/communities.
