Modern problems facing research data and its use

On Tuesday the 3rd of April there will be a presentation on the modern problems facing research data and its use. It is highly recommended that all employees at the Department of Mathematics attend.

The presentation will be held in English.

  • The topics will be wide-ranging, but will include topics such as: - Sensitivity/privacy. The use of TSD and why we need it. When and why can’t you store data on your laptop.
  • Long term retention. What happens with your data when your project ends? Where can you store things long term?
  • The distinction between personal and group data. What is your data today might be someone else’s data to work on tomorrow.
  • Legal requirements for availability after publishing. What do you have to think about and how can it be solved?
  • Growth over time. When planning for storage, how much data do you have to plan for today, tomorrow, and next year?
  • Backup. Lots of small files are problematic for backup. How to plan and use backups properly.


The presenters are:

  • Elin Stangeland (Advisor for Digital services at the University Library)
  • Gard Thomassen (Assistant Director at USIT, responsible for Research computing)
  • Michel Heeremans (Department of Geology)
