Topic: “How Research Data Management (RDM) Intersects with ARC and Why Should I Care?“
Speaker: Jeff Moon, Compute Ontario
Researchers using Alliance and other advanced research computing (ARC) platforms have been (or should be) starting to think more about Research Data Management (RDM) for a variety of reasons, not least of which being the new Tri-Agency policy on RDM. Progress toward embedding RDM awareness and best practices into ARC and HPC workflows has been limited to date, but efforts are underway to fix this – including presentations like this one, which is an early attempt to look at RDM through an ARC lens. Best practices will be shared, along with a discussion of gaps in need of addressing.
The Compute Ontario Colloquia are weekly Zoom presentations on Advanced Research Computing, High Performance Computing, Research Data Management, and Research Software topics, delivered by staff from three Compute Ontario consortia (CAC, SciNet, SHARCNET) and guest speakers. The series began January 2023 and superseded similar series previously delivered by individual consortia (e.g. General Interest Seminars by SHARCNET or User Group Meeting TechTalks by SciNet). The colloquia are one hour long and include time for questions. No registration is required. Presentations are usually recorded and uploaded to the hosting consortium video channel (colloquia hosted by SHARCNET go to our youtube channel).
