Breakout Session B3: Data Collection – Information Sharing Models –Need for well understood reference sites that can be used to test models
Session B3 Data Sharing –Within project: across disciplines vs. disciplines –Outside Project: Science; Outreadh –Existing Examples: Well Defined Gen Bank Protein Structure –XML – “the thing that is good about standards is that there are plenty of them”
Session B3 Data Systems need to be planned in advance of data collection PI’s need to avoid cutting data systems to meet budget goals
Session B3 Long-term Goals – Does NSF intend data systems to be archival? If so, NSF needs to provide the mechanism, hardware, etc. -- LIKE FASTLANE Does archival require top-down mandate? (e.g., CDIAC respository for AmeriFlux data) Aren’t very many successful bottom-up examples (protein structure) We need a tool box for data management as well as outreach
Session B3 Can “results from prior NSF support” be used to drive a bottom-up archival system – perhaps NSF provides a web site. The good data examples are all “simple.” Are there good data systems for complex data?
Breakout Session 6 Governance and Institutional Structure Institutional Administration IntD: high administration demand IntD: Time demanding Teaching loads and demands Department organization format Promote department cooperation at top Indirect cost/sharing methods Reduce departmental territoriality Promote IntD interactions IntD = interdisciplinary
Session B6 Professional: Promotion and Recognition Universal reward system and time obligation Tenure system and “accomplishment” Recognition that IntD is meritorious Recognition that varied publications are scholarly Push consideration of IntD “Hold on” to interdisciplinary strength thinking Promote: IntD not a loss to disciplines Use events and series for showing value
Session B6 Early Career Experiences New PhDs: interested but no team skills New PhDs: Lack IntD exposure as students No initial means to learn about other disciplines Large, coordinated, and integrated REUs IntD seminars “NCEAS-type” opportunities for students “Capstone” experience for near Ph.D. students
Session B6 International Interdisciplinary Time coordination and developing efforts Supporting developing country students Supporting visitors and stays –NO Serious Impediments -- More use of planning workshops and groups Extras and from Lunch Impediments are at “our” level Tell your colleagues to try being –Positive –Construction –adaptable
