Thursday, January 28, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

""Three scholars with deep and varied experience in developing and evaluating data management plans will explore the key practical and ethical issues they present. In addition to the practicalities of developing convincing data management plans for NSF proposals, this panel will examine the ethics of big data that go beyond the IRB certification, investigating exactly how data participates in our social world, and what we as researchers can do about it.
