Dataverse users and developers from around the world convened at Harvard once again for the annual Dataverse Community Meeting in June.

This year's meeting was organized with an aim to examine "how Dataverse continues to grow as an integral part of the data lifecycle, with talks that include a broad range of topics: managing data with Dataverse institutional data repositories, supporting large scale data, integrating data sharing with computing and with tools that help reproducible research, and connecting data to scholarly and other research outputs." Presenters and panelists included members of the IQSS Dataverse team as well as visiting speakers such as Keynote speakers Phil Bourne (University of Virginia) and Victoria Stodden (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).
