IDCC13 Previews: Francine Bennett and Hans Pfeiffenberger
With the 8th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC13) now but a few days away, the Digital Curation Centre has published two more postings in its series of Conference previews.
The first has been written by Francine Bennett, data scientist and CEO/co-founder of Mastodon C, an organisation of agile big data specialists who offer the open source technology platform as well as the technical and analytical skills which help companies realise the potential of their data. Before founding Mastodon C, Francine spent a number of years working on big data analysis for search engines, helping them to turn lots of data into even more money.
Francine’s preview posting on the Conference is available on the Digital Curation Centre Web site.
The second preview is by Hans Pfeiffenberger, Head of IT infrastructure at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) and speaker for the Helmholtz Association’s Open Access working groups, where he specialises in access to data. Hans represents Helmholtz’ interest in access to data in various bodies, such as the Priority Initiative “Digital Information” by the Alliance of German Science Organizations and the Alliance for Permanent Access (APA).
