    In this session, you will learn how mobile app design can be strategically leveraged in innovative ways to make data collection easier and to increase participant engagement. This information includes insights on user-centered approaches for applying design thinking methodology and includes a discussion of design best practices. Case studies of research apps for special populations will be demonstrated.

    SeedMeLab is a set of modular building blocks to create powerful data management and data sharing websites. It enables research teams to manage, share, search, visualize, and present their data in a web-based environment using an access-controlled, branded, and customizable website they own and control. It supports storing and viewing data in a familiar tree hierarchy, but also supports formatted annotations, lightweight visualizations, and threaded comments on any file/folder. SeedMeLab can be easily extended and customized to support metadata, job parameters, and—

    The battle to make research computing more accessible and secure, while extremely engaging, remains complex. This talk will focus on some of the cutting edge containerized research computing implementations that UCSF has designed, attempted to expand, and used at the Center for Digital Health Innovation—

    This session will reveal the journey that the UCLA Web Services Team is going through in transitioning from a traditional web development shop to a data first web services organization in support of research and researchers. Areas of focus will include transitioning from traditional infrastructure to cloud infrastructure as-a-service, APIs for data sharing, and creating new knowledge through collaboration.

    Because research IT has become a commodity, we need to look for other avenues for adding value. One way of doing this—

    Several teams at our campus are building a research data platform, called Information Commons. Along with software tools and data models this forms an infrastructure serving the campus research community with many different types of de-identified clinical data. Currently available/planned data are electronic health records, images, clinical notes, omics and—

    ArcGIS is a powerful suite of spatial tools that scales to private enterprises, small cities, and likewise, universities. Structuring enterprise tools in a highly federated environment, such as a university, presents unique challenges, but when done correctly enables researchers to utilize an adaptable research toolkit and collaborate effectively without the overhead of administrative resource constraints. In this session, GIS and IT Professionals from multiple campuses, as well as from the GIS software company, Esri Education Team, will—

    Information security of research data is often an afterthought, until there is a data emergency.  We, in our department, have collaborated with data governance, security, CTSI, and privacy, to establish a procedural and technical plan to help ensure the security of our data delivery.  We have focused on 3 methods to improve our IS: quick disclosure, recurring data requests, and Service Now practices to tighten up our security methods.  In this session I will review these methods—

    As the University of California, San Francisco prepares for a containerized future across many different platforms, environments, and teams, the School of Medicine Technology Services team (SOMTech) has begun experimenting with cross-platform containerization solutions. In this experimental architecture, deployment, and development effort, the School of Medicine has built and tested a multi-tenant Kubernetes solution on top of its existing Amazon Research Cloud implementation (ARC + Elastic Kubernetes Service) previously described in the 2018 talk Accelerating Secure Medical—

    Many research computing services are seeing rapid growth in the use of virtual machine (VM) and container images to support research computation, applications, and workflows (Belmann et al., 2015). These images are used across a range of compute models and disciplines. Researcher interest in VMs and containers is driven by a wide range of considerations, including need to provision and run VM images when using cloud resources; portability of environments to multiple computational resources or platforms; efficiency in—
