Frictionless Data

At SciDataCon, we are involved in two sessions. First, we will be co-organizing a session Getting the incentives right – removing social, institutional and economic barriers to data sharing. Later in the conference, we will be presenting on the state of our Frictionless Data work at the Semantic Enrichment, Metadata and Data Packaging II session. At RDA, we will again present on Frictionless Data as part of the Container in scientific workflows and data preservation session for the Research data needs of the Photon and Neutron Science community Interest Group.
