*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 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), as part of the Digital Forum events programme, and will be held in the Centre's seminar room at 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge.
