6th National Data Service
Consortium Workshop
October 19-21, 2016

The program for the upcoming National Data Service Consortium sixth plenary meeting in Pittsburgh, October 19-21, is now available at<>.

Our theme is New Frontiers in Data Discovery: Collaboration with Research Libraries and we have a terrific line-up of illustrious speakers and a number of break-out sessions on topics related to the plenary presentations.

Wednesday, October 19 is our “hack day” for developers who want to learn more about NDS Labs and NDS Share and who want to work on pilot projects with the assistance of NDS staff.  The first half of the day will include an introduction to Docker and the NDS Labs Workbench. The second half of the day we will delve into adding your tools and services to the NDS Labs Workbench. We will close the afternoon with a discussion about the new NDS, Interoperability Task Force and a Community Developer Input session which will provide an opportunity for you to share with us what you’re working on in your projects and how you’d like to work with the NDS development team.

Please register online<>. Additional information about the meeting can be found on the NDS website<> or you may contact us at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
