*Workshop on Cyberinfrastructure and machine learning for digital libraries
and archives*

In conjunction with the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2018, Fort
Worth Texas.

*Agenda for June 3rd 2018*

The workshop introduces a tryptic model that connects digital libraries and
archives, cyberinfrastructure, and machine learning to stimulate research
and implementation of automated methods to describe, represent, preserve,
and facilitate access and reuse of large-scale scholarly data.
Cyberinfrastructure refers to shared online research environments, backed
up by advanced computing resources and supported by experts. Coupled with
cyberinfrastructure, machine learning methods and tools can provide digital
libraries and archives with powerful resources to enhance their ability to
curate, organize, represent, and provide persistent access to large-scale
collections, thus facilitating their discoverability and reuse.

The papers and activities address the combination of cyberinfrastructure
and machine learning throughout the lifecycle of digital collections; from
data management planning, requirements gathering, description,
preservation, access and publication. Bring your laptop for a day of
lectures by remarkable researchers and for exciting hands-on exercises.

9:00-9:30 Conference chairs: Welcome and overview of the workshop’s agenda.

9:30-10:00 Matthew McEniry, Jessica Trelogan, and Santi Thompson: *Expanding
Library Capacity and Facilitating Reuse through a Consortial Data

10:00-10:30 Coffee break.

Large-scale Data Requirements to Cyberinfrastructure and Machine Learning.*

         After introducing how data modelling was used in the design of the
Digital Rocks Portal (, attendees
working in multi-disciplinary groups will model large-scale data use cases
including analysis, curation, access and publication functions and will map
those to cyberinfrastructure. You are welcomed to share large scale data
curation and analysis cases to discuss and resolve during the workshop.

Appliance for Restricted Data in Libraries.*

2:30-3:00 Ruizhu Huang, Hands-on tutorial:* Machine Learning on

         Attendees will get chance to learn how to log on to a
supercomputer and start an interactive sessions using a big data cluster to
explore how it can be used for a machine learning project.

3:00-3:30 Coffee Break

3:30-4:00  Dan Wu and Shaobo Liang, *Predicting Library OPAC Users’
Cross-device Transitions.*

4:00-4:30 Amit Gupta, Pankaj Jaiswal, Crispin Taylor, and Weijia Xu, *Improve
