Marseille Workshop on Scientific Data Preservation

Auditorium (Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille)


Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille

163 Avenue de Luminy, 13288 Marseille
Cristinel Diaconu (Faculte des Sciences de Luminy)


The preservation of unique data sets produced by large experimental installations is of permanent concern and has been addressed in various disciplines at different levels. The activity in high energy physics is relatively recent and has been steered by the ICFA panel "Data Preservation in High Energy Physics" (DPHEP). The series of workshops organised by DPHEP has always been open to exchanges with other disciplines. Taking the opportunity of the 6th DPHEP international meeting organised in the opening, the workshop will be devoted to the enhancement of the common reflection on the scientific grounds for data preservation and to exchanges on the associated methods and techniques, with the goal to initiate new projects and collaborations.
The last day of the meeting is devoted to a discussion on funding strategies.

The meeting is co-organised within PREDON, a collaborative project supported by the multi-disciplinary mission of CNRS within the programme MASTODONS.
