Spring 2019

March 27 — Identity and Access Management for Research, Tom Jordan and Jon Miner, UW Madison DoIT Middleware Team

Identity federation enables cross-institutional access to research facilities, data and resources both within the US and across the world. Tom Jordan and Jon Miner will provide some background on how identity federation can be used to make resources available to other institutions, and to allow UW-Madison researchers access to facilities within the national and international community. We will describe identity federation in the context of facilities such as XSEDE and CILogon, and will describe how UW-Madison research teams can leverage identity federation in their own collaborations.

April 24 — Keys to a Successful Data Management Plan, Clare Michaud and Morgan Witte, Information School M.A. Candidates

As more funders require data management plans on grant applications, writing and following an effective DMP is critical to research success. Clare Michaud and Morgan Witte will introduce the components of a strong DMP — with an emphasis on the guidelines for the NSF’s research directorates — and demonstrate how to use DMPTool online to create data management plans that meet institutional and funder requirements. Please bring a laptop or tablet if you would like to follow along during the DMPTool demonstration. No prior knowledge of research data management or DMPTool is required.
