Participants are invited for the Third Canadian Polar Data Workshop (CPDW3), a follow-up to previous Canada wide consultations held in 2015 and 2017. 

The workshop will be structured to reach specific outcomes through working group sessions and consensus building on themes such as the need for a national data management strategy for Canada, data discovery and federated search, all aspects of data interoperability, and other themes related to polar data broadly defined, including knowledge transfer and Indigenous data policies.

The workshop will also include a hackathon to advance technical aspects of polar data management in Canada. All members of the Canadian polar data and research community are invited to participate. Members of the broader data community are also welcome to attend. Additional details on expanded theme descriptions and registration details will be provided in the coming months.

The workshop will be hosted through partnership between the Canadian Consortium for Arctic Data Interoperability, Canadian Cryospheric Information Network/Polar Data Catalogue (CCIN/PDC), Polar Knowledge Canada, and numerous other organizations.

Registration deadline: 15 January 2020. To register, go to: Workshop Registration
