bioCADDIE Use Case Workshop (by invitation)


Date:  Sunday, March 8, 2015
Time:  10am – 5:30pm
Location:  Bahia Resort Hotel, 998 West Mission Blvd., San Diego, CA  92109, 858-539-7720.  

Infrastructure and tools.  By identifying common functionality required for the use cases, we will identify critical building blocks.

Workshop participants will be asked to think about the DDI from the perspective of a user who is looking for biomedical data.  What kinds of questions will users expect the DDI to answer? How can the DDI lead them to appropriate research data?  How would they like to retrieve the results? This workshop will identify use cases for the NIH Data Discovery Index, which will help researchers to find data and link data with publications and other research outputs.  The bioCADDIE project will build a prototype to demonstrate innovative ways for researchers to search, discover, and visualize search results about biomedical research data.  The NIH Director’s Data and Informatics Working Group highlighted the need for a data catalog covering "research data spanning basic science through clinical and population research."  Our goal is to develop a DDI that will serve the needs of the NIH community by facilitating discovery of a wide range of research data. This meeting will discuss and refine use cases that will serve as targets for developing in
