UK (Aberdeen) Q1 Data Management Luncheon & Mini-Workshop

UK (Aberdeen) Q1 Data Management Luncheon & Mini-Workshop
Join us for the Aberdeen Q1 Data Management Luncheon and Mini-Workshop at the DataCo Offices on February 26, 2019.

PPDM Association Events are specifically designed to facilitate collaborative idea sharing, discussion, and networking. Learn from your colleagues’ experiences, ask questions, build relationships and make key face-to-face connections. Engage in dynamic sessions and attend an information packed presentation.


This Luncheon and Mini-Workshop will feature three short presentations followed by a discussion, with the theme of 'Community'.

The agenda is planned as follows:

  • 11:30 - Registration and Welcome
  • 12:00 - Lunch and Networking
  • 12:30 - Introduction and Sponsor Presentations
  • 12:45 - Dean Pereira De Melo, University of Aberdeen, Building Data Stewardship In Geological Data Management Context: Reporting From The Trenches
  • 13:05 - Fionnuala Cousins, Robert Gordon University, Community Engagement In The Graduate Certificate Petroleum Data Management
    The Graduate Certificate Petroleum Data Management at Robert Gordon University was developed with funding from Common Data Access Ltd and enjoyed an unprecedented depth of industry involvement in the design and content of the course. As a membership body with a strong commitment to the discipline, CDA was ideally placed to bring practitioners into the course development process and RGU felt that while doing so was atypical, the benefits would be substantial. Now that the course is in its third cohort, the course leader will share her reflections on the development process, including why it was so unusual, whether the anticipated benefits of the development approach were realised and the ongoing plans for community engagement.
  • 13:25 - Chris Frost, DataCo, & Dave Pert, Shell UK, Unstructured Data Categorization Using Data Analytics
  • 13:45 - Panel and Group Discussion
  • 14:30 - Event Close

    You can also access our Event Flyer for distribution.
