For over ten years, the Dataverse Community has been collaboratively building repository software to allow researchers to share, publish, and find useful data. Community growth in 2017 included 14 new installations world-wide, bringing the total number of installations to 30. In addition to the near-doubling of organizations using Dataverse as part of their research data management process, the developer community grew to 50 unique contributors on Github and the Community Calls welcomed 290 attendees from 27 organizations/institutions across 12 countries.

The proposed panel will bring together members of the Dataverse Community each talking about how, through the use, development & training of the Dataverse Software have, helped institutions (and in some cases country federations) meet the challenging need for a data repository and in so doing - a community evolved.
