The Data Catalog Vocabulary (DCAT)

February 17, 2022

Talk, FAIRsFAIR webinar, online

Peter Winstanley from Semantics Arts and I were invited to give a talk for the FAIRsFAIR webinar on “Using DCAT (Data Catalogue Vocabulary) to support metadata catalogue integration”. We gave an introduction on the DCAT vocabulary, described its evolution and gave an overview on the initial steps to implement it.

Towards FAIR research data management

February 07, 2022

Talk, CECAM MADICES Workshop, online

I was invited to present in the CECAM workshop on “Machine actionable data for chemical sciences: Bridging experiments, simulations, and machine learning for spectral data” (MADICES), which took place online from 7th to 9th February 2022.

Research object citation and cataloguing

December 09, 2021

Talk, CoSeC@CIUK, Hybrid - Manchester, UK and online

Gemma Poulter and I were invited to talk in the CoSeC@CIUK session on 9th December 2021 about “Research object citation and cataloguing”. This is a session organised by the Computational Science Centre for Research Communities (CoSeC) in Computing Insight UK 2021 (CIUK2021) conference.

ISIS Neutron and Muon Source - Scientific Data Management

December 07, 2021

Talk, ExPaNDS WP3 Workshop on Gap and Issue Assessment, online

This meeting was part of the EU ExPaNDS project and aimed to go through the gap and issue assessment of each facility in detail and discuss about the direction and way forward to help facilities to overcome the difficulties they have with the integration of the metadata catalogues.

I was invited to give a talk on “Research Reproducibility” during the “Research Day” of the EPSRC- and MRC-funded Oxford-Nottingham Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Imaging (ONBI CDT).

Better software + better data = better research

April 23, 2019

Talk, CIFASIS, Rosario, Rosario, Argentina

In April 2019, I gave this talk in CIFASIS. CIFASIS, in Spanish Centro Internacional Franco Argentino de Ciencias de la Información y de Sistemas, is a research institute of the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) or the National Council for Science and Technology of Argentina.

EBI Metagenomics Bioinfomatics Course

September 01, 2014

Training, EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, UK

What was the plan? A role for data standards, models and computational workflows in scholarly data publishing

July 15, 2014

Talk, ISMB Workshop: What Bioinformatics need to know about digital publishing beyond the PDF, Boston, USA

This talk explores how principles derived from experimental design practice, data and computational models can greatly enhance data quality, data generation, data reporting, data publication and data review. For this, I presented a case study on reproducibility that was a collaboration between the GigaScience journal and the ISA-commons, Research Object and Nanopublication communities.
