Scientific data collected with modern sensors or dedicated detectors exceed very often the perimeter of the initial scientific design. These data are obtained more and more frequently with large material and human efforts. The preservation remains nevertheless a challlenge due to the complexity of the data structure, the fragility of the custom-made software environments as well as the lack of rigorous approaches in workflows and algorithms.[...]


The main missions of this project is to enforce the efforts to preserve the scientific data in France. PREDON is an action of the MADICS alliance (Masses de Données, Informations et Connaissances en Sciences)..



Extended workshops on Data Preservation (PREDONx) are organised on a yearly basis. Next Workshop:

March 19, 2018: CINES, Montpellier
