RIKEN is the only research institute that comprehensively studies natural sciences in Japan and produces a wide variety of large-scale data among various research fields. Data handling methods and policies, such as data management and analysis methods, open-and-closed strategies, vary greatly depending on the research field. For this reason, for promoting cross-disciplinary research, it is necessary to consider these differences in data, and it is desirable to decide on a certain policy regarding the management of data as intellectual property. On the other hand, for collecting, analyzing, and distributing data, building a data platform including a secure file repository, an analysis environment in which data and computing resources are closely linked, and a detailed description (metadata) about the experiment that produced the data, and so on.
The Head Office for Information Systems and Cybersecurity (ISC) has been preparing for the establishment of a “Data Accumulation Center” that collects and manages the research data produced by RIKEN researchers next year. The main task of the Data Accumulation Center is operating in accordance with internal and external guidelines on the data platform and data management for research promotion while overcoming the above-mentioned problems.
In order to seek operational policies that maximise the convenience of RIKEN researchers and to gather the necessary knowledge for it, RIKEN researchers engaged in data production, accumulation and analysis in the forefront at actual research site in various research fields to hold a symposium and hackathon.

OPEN SYMPOSIUM (held as a RIKEN symposium)

A symposium will be held on the first day of RIKEN Hackathon. Researchers who collect, manage, and publish large-scale data from various fields of natural sciences will be invited and discuss their know-how and issues.

18:30 Social Gathering(charged option, Hackathon attendee only)

HACKATHON (RIKEN’s internal event)

Researchers gather in the open development space and perform development work alone or in teams. The main purpose is the development of programs and tools, but considering the short period of the event, and ideathon will be held to discuss development ideas.
In both hackathon and ideathon, since RIKEN researchers are gathering at the place, it is a great advantage that problem solving discussions, data and tool resources, and technology sharing can be performed on the spot.
Furthermore, by clarifying and share the current state of RIKEN, such as where and what resources the participants are, who is doing what, and what barriers exist when other researchers collaborate, we would like to create an opportunity to accelerate research activities within RIKEN.
Hackathon will be held as a closed meeting within RIKEN. In this way, in addition to open and close in the publishing of data, it is also possible to select a semi-open policy that is publishing only within RIKEN, and asks participants to practice the “open-and-closed strategy”.
