The second annual National Data Integrity Conference (NDIC), hosted by CSU, University of Colorado and the Society of Quality Assurance, will be held June 2-3 at the Student Commons Building on the University of Colorado Denver campus. The topic of this year’s conference is “Data Sharing: How, Why, When and When Not to Share.”

Data integrity is the maintenance, accuracy and consistency of any type of data over its life. It is a critical aspect to the design, implementation and usage of data systems.

Speakers and audience members at the conference will come from diverse fields including academic research, information technology, quality assurance, regulatory compliance, private industry, grant funding and government.

The conference will be preceded by a Data Carpentry Workshop on May 31 and June 1. The workshop will include training on data formatting in spreadsheets, cleaning data using OpenRefine, data analysis and visualization in R, and creating SQL databases.
