The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers, community members, organizations, and projects working on issues surrounding data management for both Local and Traditional Knowledge (LTK) and information from community-based research and monitoring. At the workshop we will:
Hear presentations from a diverse group of projects working on community-based research and monitoring, with emphasis on data management (challenges, issues, questions, systems, etc.);
Discuss as a group key topics on the theme of data management, local knowledge, and community-based research; and
Discuss as a group continued development of an international network on data management and local knowledge through collaboration and partnership.
One of the outcomes of the workshop will be a special journal issue on community-based research and data management. Selected abstracts for the workshop have been invited to develop full papers for the journal issue. Draft papers are due at the end of 2011 with final papers to be published in the special issue late in 2012. More...
