Session Chair: Stacie Hardy

There are many ways staff or programs employ creative solutions to handle data management challenges, but there is not always an easy way to share their approach and any lessons learned across divisions. This session will be an opportunity for data managers, data producers and others to come together and share challenges they face in their work, describe the creative solutions they have employed in their work to solve these issues, describe any roadblocks they faced and share ways that others may learn from or apply what they have learned. A few examples of topics that might be covered are collaborations with private industry, crowd-sourcing initiatives, novel or alternative applications of technology. The session will consist of 5-6 15-minute presentations.
