NLM Announces Curation at Scale Workshop. 2020 Jan-Feb;(432):b6.

2020 February 11 [posted]

Data curation plays a critical role in today's biomedical research and ensures scientific data will be accessible for future research and reuse. To improve the speed and scope of manual curation, computer automation/assistance is becoming increasingly desired.

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce a two-day Curation at Scale Workshop, to be held on April 27-28, 2020 on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The NLM workshop featuring invited speakers will bring together biocurators, developers of automated curation methods, and other stakeholders, and will offer an opportunity to learn more about the current status of biomedical data curation, to share your research and your challenges, and to discuss the implementation of advanced computational techniques in scientific data curation. We invite participants from academia, government, publishers, and industry interested in the methods and tools employed in curation of biomedical data to attend this exciting workshop. Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration for poster presentation.

Poster abstract submission deadline: March 6, 2020

Registration deadline: April 17, 2020
