WG Data Citation - Making Dynamic Data citable

Date & time: Wednesday 2nd March - 11:00 - 12:30 - Working Meeting Session 4
Meeting title: WGDC - Adoption of the Recommendations on Making Dynamic Data Citeable

The working group on Data Citation produced a set of 14 recommendations of how to make arbitrary subsets of dynamic data cite-able. It is based upon time-stamped/versioned data and a precise and machine-actionable identification of subsets by storing the time-stamped queries identifying the data.
The goal of this meeting is to assist potential adopters of these recommendations by

- providing detailed questions and answers session, explaining why and how certain recommendations should be adopted
- providing examples from different pilots and adopters
- raise open issues that may need further discussion

2-page flyer summarizing the recommendations of the working Group is available at:

A full paper version explaining the recommendations in more detail is available at

The goal of this meeting is to assist potential adopters of these recommendations by

- providing detailed questions and answers session, explaining why and how certain recommendations should be adopted
- providing examples from different pilots and adopters
- raising and collecting open issues that may need further discussion

- short re-cap of the recommendations
- Q&A session
- a set of presentations on current adoptions / pilots, the progress made, issues identified
- identifying ways to help further adopters

Target audience:
- Managers of data centers who want to support their users by making their data cite-able or want to discuss data settings that impose specific constraints
- IT staff who want to learn about how to implement the citations and discuss potential technical challenges and limitations
- Researchers who use subsets of potentially dynamic data for their studies and who want to identify ways to make these cite-able

Preparation:
- Read the recommendations (2-page flyer)
- subscribe to the mailing list, via which we will distribute further information prior to the meeting. Specifically, we are planning to
- host a webinar explaining the recommendations for those who are new to the solution elaborated by the WG
- distribute a paper with more detailed back-ground information on the recommendations
