Due to the wildfires in San Diego and the poor air quality on the scheduled days, the second DatCat Workshop was cancelled.
Because researchers have scarce time to put towards making data available, we have created this workshop series to provide community members with the resources they need to contribute data to the Internet Measurement Data Catalog (DatCat)..
This workshop is co-located with the 2007 Internet Measurement Conference to assist researchers attending the conference with adding their data to DatCat.
CAIDA staff familiar with DatCat will provide an introduction to the catalog architecture and contribution interface and then will assist researchers with generating and indexing metadata for their datasets in DatCat.
- We encourage anyone interested in attending the IMC The International Workshop on Internet Measurement for Wireless Networks (IM4WiN) to attend this DatCat Community Contribution workshop on Monday October 22 and attend the IM4WiN workshop on Tuesday October 23.
- We also encourage IMC attendees who are only available Tuesday October 23 to feel free to join in the DatCat Community Contribution workshop on the second day.
Most research and operations personnel with valuable data do not have resources to support their data distribution efforts. To reduce this barrier to participation, the National Science Foundation is sponsoring the local arrangements, including transportation from the 2007 Internet Measurement Conference venue.
