*Apologies for cross posting*
As part of the Incremental project (http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/preservation/incremental/), we are running a series of fortnightly seminars, centred around some of the day-to-day challenges that researchers are facing in managing their digital research data. We have a range of speakers from different disciplines and perspectives, including researchers from the Arts, Social Sciences, Humanities and Sciences, who will explore a particular issue or theme through a mixture of presentations and discussion.
This series is co-organised with the Digital Humanities Initiative at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/, as part of their Digital Forum events programme, and will be held in the Centre's seminar room at 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge.
Our second seminar is next Wednesday:
