2018 NOAA Environmental Data Management Workshop (EDMW)
Apr 23-24, 2018 - DoubleTree Hotel, 8727 Colesville Rd, Silver Spring MD 20910

The EDMW 2018 theme is "Improving Discovery, Access, Usability, and Archiving of NOAA Data for Societal Benefit." The workshop builds on past work by providing training, highlighting progress, identifying issues, fostering discussions, and determining where new technologies can be applied for management of environmental data and information at NOAA. All NOAA employees and contractors are welcome, including data producers, data managers, metadata developers, archivists, researchers, grant issuers, policy developers, program managers, and others. Attendance is limited to 200 persons because of venue constraints; non-NOAA collaborators will be able to attend on a space-available basis.

Registration is closed because capacity has been reached. Remote listening will be available; see links on each session description page.

7D - DMP Writers Workshop
Session Chair: Christina Horvat
7D.01: Christina Horvat (NWS Office of Observations): DMP Writers Workshop (90 min)

During this session participants will actually draft a Data Management Plan (DMP) for NOAA intramural data they produce or are responsible for. An introductory briefing will provide an overview of the NOAA DMP Template, after which participants will fill out the template with someone on hand to answer questions. DMPs completed during the session may be uploaded to the DMP Repository and recorded as complete (subject to review by LO EDMC rep). NOTE: This session will focus on NOAA data, not grantee data or DMPs submitted in response to grant proposals.
