Time: 14:00 - 18:30h
Venue: Alfred-Hessel-Saal, Historical Building SUB, Papendiek 14, Göttingen


At the research bazaar, the local researchers are invited to present their work through the lens of data science methods, taking the opportunity to connect to other researchers on the campus, exchanging ideas and experiences and to engage the students and young scientist participating in the summer school. We will provide a venue (Hessel-Saal at the historical building of the SUB, Papendiek 14) with tables, poster walls, and flip charts to accommodate the individual projects.

The day will be concluded by a barbecue for all participants.

If you are interested to contribute, please drop us a message at ds3-oc@lists.uni-goettingen.de until June 30. We are open to any suggestion and would also be happy if you volunteer to co-organize this research bazaar and make it become a success.

Introducing a new workshop series with the title Göttingen eResearch Toolbox Series. This series aims to highlight digital tools that have the potential to shape the everyday work life of a wider audience of researchers on the campus. Together with invited experienced users, we intend to foster the exchange of experiences, best practices, and stimulate the experimentation with/ use of new tools.

The first part of the series will cover the topic: Electronic (Lab) Note Keeping

22.06.2017, 11.00-14.30 Uhr, Central Campus Library, Platz der Göttinger Sieben, „Großes Konferenzzimmer“ (3rd floor)

The workshop will cover short presentations and discussions about key aspects of electronic (lab) notekeeping in academic research.

We would like to bring together different pioneers and interested parties, especially at the Göttingen Campus (but also at other locations), for an exchange of experience on different approaches regarding electronic (laboratory) research documentation.

Invited talks

  • Nicole Jung, Chemotion,KIT
  • Timo Gnadt, EFForTS - Research Data Management and Integrative Statistical Analysis, SUB
  • Harald Kusch, RSpace, UMG
  • Erik Schliep, Labfolder, MPI-BPC AG Stark
