Metadata Hackathon and Workshop 

The IEEE Big Data Governance and Metadata Management group (BDGMM) will run a workshop and hackathon along with the Research Data Alliance (RDA) Eleventh Plenary Meeting. This two-day event will consist of two parallel 24-hour hackathon tracks and a plenary workshop session on big data governance and metadata management.

Hackaton track organised by CLARIN

CLARIN organises one hackathon track, which revolves around the analysis, curation, processing, presentation and management of metadata for resources relevant to the social sciences and humanities. Hackathon participants will attempt to improve metadata quality, discoverability, presentation or completeness using their preferred methods and tools.

This combined hackathon and workshop event will take place at the campus of the Technical University of Berlin in the context of the plenary's Industry Side Meeting. The hackathon will kick off on Monday 19 March 2018.

  • Registration for participation in the hackathon is open until 12 March 2018 for anyone interested.

  • Submissions deadline of full papers for the workshop is 26 February 2018.

  • A registration fee of €150 applies to the hackathon and workshop event.

Hackathon participation does not require the submission of a paper, nor does paper submission/acceptance imply participation in the hackathon.)
