I would not say this is a different focus. Data Science or Big Data is
still a driving force in changing modern research and science (as well
as industry). Researchers need tools (and knowledge) to do their
research and they look for a possibility to get proper education and
training. And surely, they need support from data archives managers and
as currently also stated from data librarians.
Indeed first few BoFs (before establishing IG) contained majority of
presentations from Data Science domains. That is why we put efforts to
involve contribution from data managers/librarians and more generally
from data preservation domains. And we had presentation from APARSEN at
the last meeting.
But still we should continue covering all aspects of data handling and
management domains and professions.
In this context can I repeat a call for contribution for the next IG
