Seminar: Linking health and social data for research: the CIDACS experience in Brazil

The Centre for Data and Knowledge Integration for Health (CIDACS, Fiocruz) was established in December 2016 in Salvador (Bahia-Brazil). Its main purpose is to conduct interdisciplinary research on populational health, generating scientific knowledge and providing evidence to support public policymaking. The core data come from integrating Brazilian national health and social datasets into two main resources - the 100 Million Brazilian Cohort and the CIDACS birth cohort. CIDACS has been developing and consolidating its data management and governance practices and experimenting with novel methodological approaches for data linkage (Cidacs-RL) and data analysis (quasi-experimental designs)..

EGENIS seminar: "Data Integration without Unification", Beckett Sterner (Arizona State University)

How should billions of species observations worldwide be made reusable? Data unification according to a universal hierarchy of domains has been a popular ideal for biodiversity science, but it relies on heuristic assumptions that are known to fail systematically in practice. We propose a new regulative ideal for how scientists can coordinate their knowledge-making without unification to achieve better results when pluralistic conditions apply. We focus on data pooling as a crucial form of integrative research in science that supports data reuse. We define data pooling as a process that combines data from multiple sources into one harmonized body of information, provide infrastructure for managing and accessing the combined data, and governs it as a shared resource for a community of users and stakeholders beyond a single research project or lab..

Indian Ocean World Archaeology Conference (IOW-Arch)

Following on from the successful inaugural IOW-Arch conference held on Friday 10th - Saturday 11th January 2020, the second IOW-Arch is a hybrid event planned for Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th December 2022. This is being held at the Institute of Arab and Islamic studies (IAIS), University of Exeter, who are generously providing financial support. The driving force behind the Indian Ocean World Archaeology Conference is the major growth in relevant studies over the years and the promotion of a forum where this research can be discussed and developed to promote the success of the future of Indian Ocean studies. The aim of this conference is to facilitate this and allow fellow researchers to meet, get to know each other and talk about and share their work on an international, informal platform. A drinks reception will follow proceedings on Monday 19th and there will be a conference dinner (at participants expense) after the closing remarks and discussion on Tuesday 20th December.
