ARDN Data Interoperability Conference

June 9, 2022

The Agricultural Research Data network (ARDN) will hold a conference on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at the National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland, USA to showcase ARDN data interoperability tools and protocols. The ARDN project team will describe methods developed for data annotation and sharing which can be used to ‘‘rescue’’ legacy data or be applied to new data sources to facilitate interoperability and reuse of our most valuable agricultural research product: data. We will describe ARDN implementation on NAL’s Ag Data Commons and CGIAR’s GARDIAN data portals and discuss with conference participants ways of furthering this work through potential collaborations.

The one-day conference will be preceded by two hands-on data workshops. On Tuesday, June 7, the ARDN Data Providers Workshop presents participants with the ARDN data annotation concepts and allows them to prepare their own data (or data provided by us) for inclusion in ARDN. On Wednesday, June 8, the ARDN Data User’s Workshop will introduce participants to the process of translating ARDN datasets to model-specific formats.
