Data Archiving -- Getting It Right - Part 1
Co-Chairs: Nancy Ritchey / Nazila Merati
Location: Emerald 1
.
Data archiving can give data a new life by opening it up to different users through new access and discovery tools. This session will explain what is required to get data archived, including the scope of the data collection, retention policies, data formats, and metadata. NCEI will step through the process, highlight documentation, and identify points of contact along the way.

Cloud Service Technologies and How to Get Started
Co-Chairs: Jebb Stewart / Matt Austin
Location: Emerald 1
.
Cloud Computing, Data Science, AI, and Big Data are evolving faster than the operational environment, resulting in missed opportunities. Scientists need easy access to cutting edge technology to experiment and evaluate its usefulness. This session explores getting started with Cloud, how others use these tools, and the advantages, challenges, and visions in working with these capabilities.

Managing NOAA's Research and Development Assets
Co-Chairs: Gary Matlock / Kristen Schepel
Location: Emerald 1
.
This session solicits presentations and topics related to the use of publication and project management data and information to track NOAA’s research outputs including reach and impact. Presenters will focus on the NOAA Institutional Repository, NOAA’s Research & Development Database, and NOAA’s Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System illustrating how the systems function, how to submit/input data, and how they are used to report on NOAA’s research activities. Additionally, presenters will show how these systems are coming together to share data and create linkages between projects and final outcomes such as publications and NOAA assets (observation platforms) and how these efforts can help reduce redundant work and make reporting easier. Additional presentations about using these systems, working with staff to input materials, querying and reporting impacts from these and other databases are also welcomed for this session.

Fisheries Data Integration
Co-Chairs: Jordan Watson / Karen Sender
Location: Emerald 1
.
Integrating catch information with marine environmental data helps explain why vessels traveled to certain locations. Recent data accessibility improvements open the potential for near real-time fisheries management and to understanding responses to a changing climate. Presentations on data integration in other domains are also welcome, to promote learning and best practices.
