Training and Strategy Workshop for ImmPort Data Submitters
Date: October 9-10, 2013
Venue: Alpha-Beta Room, Rho Federal Systems Division (6330 Quadrangle Dr. Suite 500, Chapel Hill, NC 27517)
Parking and Security: Non-Rho attendees can park anywhere, although there are visitor parking spaces near the front door. You need to check into the front desk where you will receive a name tag and be escorted to the room where we will be meeting. People who are traveling and have luggage with them have the option of leaving items in a locked closet during the meeting.
Goals of this meeting:
- to provide assistance to actual and potential submitters of data to ImmPort: how to make submission more intuitive and more efficient?
- to enable interaction between submitters and those charged with managing and improving ImmPort in order to identify problems and opportunities for improvement
- to improve extraction of data from ImmPort: how can we make ImmPort data more easily discoverable and more useful to researchers?
