Dear colleagues

Please find a notice about an upcoming workshop attached.

Data repositories play an essential role in enabling FAIR (Findable,
Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) custodianship of research data. This
implies an inherent mandate of trustworthiness.

Trusted Digital Repositories ...

●        give researchers the assurance that their data will be cared for,

●        provide funding bodies with the confidence that research data
which they fund, will remain available for reuse,

●        enable researchers to reliably assess the data they want to reuse.

NeDICC, in collaboration with SFSA hosts the “*In repositories we trust
...!*” workshop on *5 December 2017* at the *CSIR International Convention
Centre (CSIR ICC)* in Pretoria. The intention is to expand the South
African data community’s experience in trusted repository certification.

The CoreTrustSeal standard for certification is hot off the press – giving
us the opportunity to attempt to comply with the NRF requirement of giving
researchers access to trusted repositories. The aim of the workshop is to
understand the certification process and the requirements, as well as to
prepare a draft submission for certification. This will assist those
repositories that have reached maturity to apply for certification and
those who are not yet able to do so to plan and progress towards compliance.

Upon registration you will be provided with workshop material. It is
expected that participants would at least have attempted to complete the
submission template by the 5 December and have sourced the evidential
material, such as institutional policies related to the certification
criteria. The workshop time will be used to address specific concerns and
to also share possible responses in cases where these responses are not
obvious. Please bring along your own laptops.

The workshop will be presented by Mr Wim Hugo (Chief Data and Information
Officer at SAEON) and Niklas Zimmer (Manager: Digital Library Services, UCT

The workshop is free of charge.

Please register online at https://goo.gl/forms/8ic4iFsuhOAOFu8A2 for the
workshop. Registration will close by 24 November. The first 40 delegates to
register will be accommodated. You will receive confirmation of attendance
via email. If you have registered, but are unable to attend, please inform
Lucia Lotter (hsrccuration at gmail.com) by 24 November. Keep in mind that you
will be charged a cancellation fee in case of a no-show.

The workshop is a side event to the Science Forum South Africa (
http://www.sfsa.co.za/ ) which takes place on 7-8 December. It will be
worthwhile to attend.
