As a way to illustrate Research Data Management (RDM) in practice, this session will feature UBC researchers discussing their experiences with data management, with a focus on unforeseen events that lead to a disruption, near disruption, or horror story in their research. The session will be led by a moderator to facilitate a panel discussion in which UBC researchers will answer questions relating to data and RDM, and we encourage you to bring your own questions for the panel!
