United in Data

This year our conference will focus on challenges and solutions associated with the management, sharing, analysis and visualisation of data; issues that are of fundamental importance across the breadth of the research landscape. We welcome submissions that showcase the important impacts being made by data science and digital tools across a range of disciplines (agritech, biomedical, energy technology, environment, genomics, space, urban systems…), as well as submissions that highlight innovation and advances relating to community building and best practice, in local, national or international contexts.

Submissions will be organised according to the four streams below:

  • Innovations & Impacts: Showcase successful projects, highlight innovative work-in-progress, and/or present current and emerging research priorities, trends, and best practices.
  • Communities & Digital Scholarship: Build community and collaborations amongst practitioners and end-users and provide opportunities for professional development and mentoring.
  • Shared Approaches & Best Practices: Promote shared approaches to supporting research needs using digital tools, and draw experience and inspiration from projects and outcomes in other regions.
  • Local & Global Developments: Showcase innovative work-in-progress, and draw experience and inspiration from projects and outcomes in other regions.

eResearch NZ 2020 will be hosting lightning talkspresentationsbirds-of- a-feather and workshops of work underway or complete within the last year, with an aim to:

  • showcase innovative work-in-progress or recent project results where digital tools were applied
