"Data Science Innovation

at the Intersection of Biomedical Research and the Library

Biomedical research is increasingly data intensive and intertwined with data science. This conference will bring key stakeholders including researchers, government, industry, publishers, and health care consumer representatives together to provide a forum for presentations and discussions around: data analytics, supporting data sharing, the changing role of journals and peer-review, use of "FAIR" (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data sets, trends in mining big data to yield knowledge, opportunities for trans-NIH data science activities, and more. The constructive and practical outcomes should benefit researchers as well as users of  scientific discoveries. 

As the largest provider of digital information services used by scientists, health professionals and members of the public worldwide, the NLM's role is ever more critical to the future of biomedical research. NLM's concept of "a push library" is one that proactively engages, breaks new ground and redefines its role in the 21st century.
