Looking for a tool to help you keep track of your research data?

Come to the short lunchtime info session about OPUS - free tool developed for you by researchers at the Computer Laboratory in Cambridge, and learn how to keep track of all your files and their modifications.

What can Opus help you with?

EPSRC ’s open data requirements now mean it’s necessary to track the data and metadata involved in the creation of every publication. Manual collection of this information is cumbersome, tedious and error prone while adding automatic collection is likely to be a domain-specific, time consuming and expensive exercise.

At the Computer Laboratory we have developed a system called OPUS that assists with the task of data and metadata collection for Linux applications. OPUS seamlessly and transparently monitors the programs run on machines and records a variety of information such as the files that were accessed and the user running the program. This is achieved with negligible performance overhead.

We have adapted OPUS to satisfy the EPSRC open data requirements. During the talk we will introduce OPUS , show you how it can help you to meet EPSRC ’s requirements and outline our plans for the future. We are looking for researchers who are interested in working with us, we hope to deploy OPUS onto your systems and then we will work closely with you to offer support and create tools focused on your use cases. Currently we can only offer OPUS to users on Linux platforms.

The event is open to everyone.
