Data curation plays a critical role in today’s biomedical research and ensures scientific data will be accessible for future research and reuse. In the time of pandemics, the need to get scientific information to researchers, medical personnel, and the public as quickly as possible is greater than ever before. In response to the need for increased curation speed, scale, and reliability, computer automation/assistance is becoming increasingly desirable.
The NLM Curation at Scale workshop – held virtually on Zoom from March 28 to March 30, 2022 – will bring together biocurators, developers of automated curation systems, and other stakeholders. The workshop offers an opportunity to learn about the current status of biomedical data curation, share research and challenges, and discuss the implementation of advanced computational techniques in scientific data curation. In addition to curation, the workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss key related aspects such as data standards and sharing.
We welcome participants from academia, government, publishers, and industry interested in the methods and tools employed in curation of biomedical data. All participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration for a poster podium presentation.
Online registration for the NLM workshop on Curation at Scale 2022 is required for virtual, free attendance.
