2nd Workshop on FAIR Data in Plasma Science

We invite you to attend the 2nd Workshop on FAIR Data in Plasma Science from May 3-4, 2023 at Ruhr University in Bochum (Germany), virtual participation will be possible.

The workshop addresses researchers at different stages to exchange on the topic of research data management (RDM). The topics of the workshop will be electronic lab notebooks, practical issues in the daily life with research data management systems as well as presentations of already established solutions. Moreover, an interactive part is planned to focus on how to get standards to the lab. Here, we would like to address all participants to bring in their ideas and expertise from the field.

We kindly ask you to save the date and to spread this information to your colleagues and/or students who might be interested.
