Workshop on constructing database resources for large-scale and complex data

21 June 2017, 9.00 AM - 21 June 2017, 5.30 PM

Engineers' House, Clifton

We would like to invite you to attend a free one-day workshop on constructing database resources for large-scale and complex data at Engineers’ House, Clifton, Bristol on 21st June 2017.

The aim of the day is to bring together individuals planning, working on or supporting large-scale database resources in order to share knowledge and best practice and to form new collaborations. The day will consist of flash presentations from participants outlining their projects, problems or skills they can provide; a series of talks from individuals working on database resources or who can support their development; a breakout session, and plenty of time for networking over coffee breaks and lunch. 

The talks will cover:
(1) the platform and infrastructure challenges in supporting database resources;
(2) database design for highly heterogeneous multi-level data;
(3) ensuring data quality through cleaning and harmonising different datasets;
(4) working with, linking across, and safely sharing anonymised or commercially sensitive datasets;
(5) developing visualisations of multi-level (and “big”) data for stakeholders and interested parties.

To register please go to Eventbrite.  Space is limited.

We would like all participants to give a single slide, 3 minute flash presentation (on your database project or problem, or how you can help with database resources). If you are unable or unwilling to do this, please indicate on the Eventbrite Form. We will require slides by 20th June.The workshop is free to attend but please note we do expect participants to attend the whole day. 

This workshop is supported by a Jean Golding Institute Seed Corn Grant at the University of Bristol. For more information and send the slides to Harriet Mills ( We look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,
Harriet Mills, Kristen Reyher, Andrew Dowsey and Jon Massey
