Here's a bit more detail:

The NSF-funded Data and Software Preservation for Open Science (DASPOS, project is hosting a  workshop on Container Strategies for Data & Software Preservation that Promote Open Science at the University of Notre Dame. This two-day linux container centric workshop will feature keynote speakers, lightning talks, demonstrations, and hands-on breakouts related to container strategies for software and data preservation that promote open science, science reproducibility and re-use.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about how others are using Docker and related container tools like ReproZip, Umbrella, SmartContainer, NDS Dashboard in environments like the National Data Service, Open Science Framework, government, publisher and institutional repositories. The workshop organizers are confident that no matter the participants' level of expertise with container tools and strategies for preserving software and computational environments they will learn from other stakeholders, benefit from the well designed online use cases, and leave the workshop better able to share their data, software and other digital research objects.
