Gen3 - Events

Gen3 Community Events

About every other month, there is a virtual Gen3 Forum for the community of Gen3 developers, operators, sponsors and users of Gen3 data platforms. These events aim to share information about how to set up new Gen3 instances, build a community that can help each other, and create clear paths for support from the Gen3 core development team.

Upcoming Events

July 10, 3:30-5:00 pm CDT; July 11, 2024, 6:30-8:00am am AEST

Data submission - Perspectives and solutions from different Gen3 systems

Gen3 data submission can be complex and will vary from project to project. The specifics will depend on the data model, data type, use of graph-model and/or metadata service, centrally managed vs user driven, and other project-specific requirements. At this event we will hear from a range of Gen3 operators on how their projects approach the topic of data submission and how they have managed this process.

How to contribute to the Gen3 source code

Gen3 is an open-source project and benefits from active community contributions. In this month's forum we will share an updated process for submitting external contributions to the Gen3 source code. By following these guidelines developers will be able to understand submission requirements and it will enable the maintaining organization to efficiently review proposed contributions.

Security and Compliance

Gen3 is designed to enable secure and compliant data sharing and analysis for researchers around the world. However, security and compliance can be a complex topic and so we will focus our next event on security best practices. The event will also include experiences from other Gen3 operators on setting up and maintaining a Gen3 Data Commons from a security perspective.

Data Modeling in Gen3 Data Commons

Gen3 supports a flexible graph-based data model, which can be customized for a wide variety of projects and use cases. At this community event we will hear from several data commons operators on how they have created their dictionaries and about any tools or processes they use for updating and configuring them.
