The Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) has produced an international
XML standard for the use of lifecycle information about social science
research data. Version 3.0 was published in April 2008. DDI facilitates
the automation of documentation and production systems for the delivery
of social science data. This workshop is geared toward the staff of
archives and data producing agencies. The five-day structure of this
workshop provides the participants with an opportunity for in-depth
assistance on the specialized features of DDI that are important to
their organization's activities.

New features in DDI 3 support:

- metadata capture from planning and production to dissemination and
analysis
- reuse of metadata to drive subsequent production or analysis processes
- ISO 11179 compliant data registries such as question, variable, and
concept banks
- grouping of study series for longitudinal and comparative research
- capturing comparative information for the creation of harmonized data
- improved capture of archival information for data organization and
management

The workshop provides the opportunity to get an in-depth look at this
major new release of DDI. The workshop is organized in cooperation with
the DDI Alliance.

Intended audience: anyone interested in DDI, no prior knowledge of DDI
or XML is required.
