This workshop held jointly with the 1st International Workshop on the Digital Preservation of Research Methods and Artefacts (DPRMA 2013) and continued the DASPOS exploration of the key technical problems that must be solved to provide data and software preservation for open science. During this workshop, under the aegis of the DASPOS project, we conducted a discovery and coordination activity to bring together a broad community of experts and stakeholders to begin to define, discuss, and document the details of data and software preservation across different disciplines. The workshop aimed through panel presentations, discussion with panelists, and round table discussions, to explore appropriate data, software and algorithmic preservation approaches, including the contexts necessary to understand, trust and reuse data.

Purpose: (i) Explore areas of commonality and difference, (ii) identify common metadata standards that could be designed to allow generic access and indexing of cross-disciplinary research data, and (iii) identify cross-disciplinary services that would support data preservation (e.g. software repositories).
