PV2020 Conference - Adding value (to) and preserving Scientific and Technical data (#PV2020)

Europe/Zurich
Description

The PV 2020 Conference welcomes you to its 10th edition, which was to have been held 12th – 14th  May 2020 at CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research.

N.B. due to measures taken to reduce the impact / spread of Covid-19, PV2020 will be postponed.

The Programme Organising Committee is in favour of a "physical" meeting in 2021 - probably after the summer (in the Northern Hemisphere).

If this will not be possible, a "virtual" meeting will be held.

Hopefully a decision can be taken in early 2021 regarding this. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

CERN is operating the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and is working on a strategy (as part of the general European Strategy for Particle Physics) that foresees a timeline out until the end of the current century. Some 300PB of data are currently stored in the on-site archive - including data from previous generations of experiments, such as the Large Electron Positron collider (LEP) that took data from 1989 to 2000 - with additional copies at collaborating High Energy Physics institutes around the world.

In contrast to other conferences and workshops on related topics, the PV series has a particular focus on scientific data, often from large scale, multi-national facilities. However, one should not forget that at least a number of the challenges faced are shared with many other disciplines, as is the need for effective collaboration and sharing of ideas and even solutions.

With respect to previous conferences in this series, and whilst maintaining the overall thrust, additional goals for PV2020 include:

  • Attracting more scientific communities
  • Broadening information exchange, sharing of experiences, tools and even services
  • Keeping in step with (or ahead of) funding agencies / policy makers in their push for Long Term Data Preservation and Open Data

As usual, there will be four sessions, this time focussing on the following outline areas:

Session 1: Ensuring long-term data and knowledge preservation (the "P" in PV);

Session 2: Adding value to data and facilitation of data use (the "V" in PV);

Session 3: Short - medium term issues related to policy, technology, guidelines, FAIR / TRUST principles, certification;

Session 4: (Very) long term issues.

A new session (for the PV series) will be a set of "lightning talks" that will have a light-weight review process and for which the call for mini-abstracts will be sent to registered participants after the formal review process of the full abstracts for posters and papers has completed.
