CDI members coordinated the USGS participation in SciDataCon, a conference seeking to advance the frontiers of data in all areas of research, held in Denver in September 2016. Members of the CDI coordination team organized USGS participant interest in the SciDataCon theme of “Policy and Practice of Data in Research.” Madison Langseth and John Faundeen of CDI convened the session “Managing Science Data: A Federal Agency’s Perspective.”

The session had eight accepted oral papers and one poster. Due to the organization efforts of the co-convenors, 6 presentations were given by USGS representatives on the topics of the USGS Data Management Website, the CDI community, monitoring tools, trusted digital repositories, metadata management, and data management strategies. The session had over 50 attendees and helped to spread the word about USGS Data Management successes to the international scientific data community.
