MetaSat. An open, collaboratively-developed metadata toolkit to support the future of space exploration. https://dresa.org.au/materials/metasat-an-open-collaboratively-developed-metadata-toolkit-to-support-the-future-of-space-exploration-49af7d4d-f0d1-4f95-9fbe-afbd45170a6a MetaSat is an open metadata toolkit for describing small satellite (and even large satellite) missions in a uniform and shareable way. Optimised for small satellite missions, MetaSat fills an informatics gap. Although there have been a number of relevant metadata sets, there has been a longstanding need for a vocabulary to span these community standards. A vocabulary to annotate the data and information outputs of these satellite missions, to enable search across disparate data repositories, and provide support for application of analytical services to retrieved datasets. A common problem among small satellite teams is finding information about how other small satellites were put together, what parts worked well, what weren't compatible, what were the mission goals and outcomes. A lot of this information can be found, but it's not usually described in a consistent and searchable way across projects. MetaSat helps by building a uniform language of description which can be embedded into small satellite databases and tools to connect information across projects. Although a relatively new vocabulary initiative, MetaSat has secured early adoption by SatNOGS, a global network of ground stations that collects, manages & enables access to satellite observations. Also partnering with NASA's Small Satellite Reliability Initiative, and in discussion with NASA concerning implementation of the vocabulary in other areas of its information infrastructure.

Data Policy https://dresa.org.au/materials/data-policy-c8bc856f-0afa-49dc-b100-36e9a8375327 Increasing the availability of research data for reuse is in part being driven by research data policies. While the number of research funders, journals and institutions with some form of research data policy is growing, the landscape is complex and therefore the implementation and implications of policies for researchers can be unclear, confusing and sometimes even contradictory. The RDA Data Policy Standardisation and Implementation IG was established to help address these challenges. Initially the Group focussed on Developing a Research Data Policy Framework for All Journals and Publishers and with journal adoptions of the framework growing, the Group is now focussing on alignment between publishers and funders. This session provided an overview of the joint session held at RDA P17 of the Research Funders and Stakeholders on Open Research and Data Management and Practices IG, the Data Policy Standardisation and Implementation IG and the FAIRsharing WG. The focus of this RDA VP17 session was to provide an overview of a joint project to examine funder-publisher policy alignment and provide recommendations on how to improve alignment. contact@ardc.edu.au policy, data policy, publishers, training material

As a rule of thumb, one can expect to spend 15-20 hours of development time per hour of delivery time. Even once the main work is done, there are still ongoing maintenance demands, from correcting the inevitable typos and adapting to software version updates, to major rewrites as best practice techniques evolve. Few Australians training organisations have a funding mandate for developing training material for general use. Instead most of us build training for our own communities in response to demand from those communities, allocating our limited resources to the areas of perceived highest demand. Notwithstanding this local focus, most training organisations operate in similar research environments with similar community demands, so there are real opportunities for benefit from collaboration between those organisations. In this session we will discuss how such collaboration could occur and whether a standardised national agreement around sharing of training material is an achievable outcome. This session will not discuss co-delivery opportunities, institution-specific content such as HPC training and data management, or consolidation of existing similar workshops into a single course. These are important topics, but we don’t have time to do them justice today. contact@ardc.edu.au training material, training, sharing guidelines, sharing agreements

As part of a training program in machine learning, visualisation, and computing tools, we have established a series of over 20 workshops over the year where either Monash or QCIF hosts the event for some 20-40 of their researchers and students, while some 5 places are offered to participants from the other institution. In the longer term we aim to share material developed at one institution and have trainers present it at the other. In this talk we will describe the many benefits we have found to this approach including access to a wider range of expertise in several rapidly developing fields, upskilling of trainers, faster identification of emerging training needs, and peer learning for trainers. contact@ardc.edu.au data skills, training partnerships, data science, AI, training material

While this collective dialogue among instructors is not new, what is new is the traction that various groups are getting. The newly formed group of eResearch support staff gathered by the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) and Sydney Informatics Hub (SIH) is one such group, as is the Lightweight Working Group (LWG): Researcher digital skills training data for enabling digital infrastructure use, spearheaded by University of Melbourne’s David Flanders during the pre-Skills Summit discussions. In this session we seek to build on the momentum, by including a hands-on working session. Participants are asked to come with information to share and questions they seek to answer. During the first half of this session, attendees will populate a public document with shareable training details. The goal is to at least double the size of the new cross-institutional national training collection started by the LWG. The second half of this session will be to ask questions to arrive at next steps. What do we need to do to continue building out this national training inventory and who will be in charge of maintaining and distributing the archive? What platforms exist and are used to capture training data and material and make it readily maintainable and findable? Can the material be reused and how do we recognise and capture re-use? Do we know about how to apply a license to our materials for appropriate reuse or do we need guidance? While there will likely be more questions than these, one question has been answered. When can we move from talking to doing? That time is now. contact@ardc.edu.au training inventory, training registry, national skills initiatives, training material

The goal of this project is to provide a common understanding of the eResearch capabilities, from which appropriate skill sets can be derived for positions or teams. In this presentation we will share an overview of the project, including: FAVeR and the APeRW Working Group, the eResearch Value Proposition and Chain, draft eResearch Services, and example capabilities. In addition, we will share the early results of a planned community consultation, which has been proposed as a ‘Birds of a Feather’ session at eResearch Australasia 2020. This consultation aims to elicit feedback, from the broader eResearch community, on the following questions: ● Are there other aspects of eResearch Services? What falls outside the scope of the service and capabilities descriptions? ● Is there a priority between eResearch Services? e.g. Mandatory, optional, and dependencies. What’s required when for deploying an e/Digital Research support unit. What’s the priority order and what’s the minimum required? ● Is there a distinction between general and specialised capabilities? e.g. Are there cross service eResearch capabilities. This presentation will be of interest primarily to Decision-makers and managers and Digitally focussed research support professionals. contact@ardc.edu.au skills, training, digitally skilled workforce, eresearch services, capabilities, training material

Locking the front door without leaving the windows open: positioning authentication technologies within the "Five Safes" framework for effective use of sensitive research data

This project explores the options for access to sensitive data sets; what authentication technologies (e.g. multi-factor authentication) are needed to access sensitive data and secure compute environments.  This project seeks to position choices around authentication technologies within the Five...
