Event description

Description

Springer Nature's second hack day will bring together developers and international researchers to build and use tools to advance data sharing, reuse and discovery.

This day offers a unique chance to engage with a diverse group of researchers and developers (from organisations such as Springer Nature, Alan Turing Institute and DataCite) and take advantage of a variety of closed and open data sources for the exploration, combining and mining of scholarly research, researcher datasets and related metadata.

Whether you already have a team in mind, or are looking to join an established team, this is your chance to be part of a highly skilled and knowledgable group and participate in a fun day solving problems (big or small) related to linking, discovering, and understanding research data.

Participating teams will be encouraged to focus their efforts on three main areas:

  1. Data linking

    • Identify links and associations between articles and datasets

    • Monitor impact of and compliance with data publishing policies

    • Infer new research insights from published data

    • Make it easier to share or link to research data

  2. Data visualisation

    • Create visualizations of datasets and their relationships

    • Improve the ability to understand and communicate data

    • Infer new research insights from published data

  3. Data curation

    • Enhance discoverability and reuse of published datasets

    • Create tools or systems that help users curate research datasets to enable reuse

    • Improve handling of data and creation of metadata

Participants are also welcome to propose specific themes, challenges and data sources ahead of the event.

Register to save your place for the day and let us know during your registration if you have an idea for a team or if you are looking to join an already established team.
