King's Together Interdisciplinary Research Workshop
December 6th 10am to 1pm (for KCL staff only)
A half-day workshop aimed at fostering a culture of interdisciplinary research and collaboration, and to germinate proposals for the King’s Together March 2017 submission.
The workshop will be in two parts:
Geoff Browell (Head of Archive Services), Mark Coté (Lecturer in Digital Cultures) , James Smithies (Head of King's Digital Lab) and Dr. Simon Miles (Department of Informatics) will talk about their experiences and research linking to themes such as Big Data, Linked Open Data and the new opportunities for facilitating collaborations that KDL will provide.
Alan Ashton-Smith (Research Development Manager for Arts & Hums.) will also speak about the King's Together seed funding
Attendees are invited to (optionally) present a 5 minute précis to the group of a research topic or dataset that they believe has the potential to benefit from an interdisciplinary approach, or is hovering at the edge of their own discipline. Each micro presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A to allow colleagues to offer their own insights, suggest appropriate resources and express collaborative interest.
Upon registration, please RSVP and (optionally) provide a paragraph regarding the topic you would like to bring to the group.
Time permitting, we will have a short breakout session to refine and focus ideas, and final summing up and feedback. Analysts from King’s Digital Lab will be available to talk about King’s Together proposals during and after the workshop.
