Call for Expressions of Interest – Research Data Alliance Plenary in Australia

Categorised: COLLABORATE, News

Are you interested in hosting an international meeting of research data practitioners from around the world? The biggest working event in the world to build data agreements occurs twice a year at the Research Data Alliance Plenary. There is an opportunity to host this event in March (preferred), April or May 2020.

RDA Plenaries typically attract a large and dynamic audience, and provide a great opportunity to co-locate regional and domain-specific meetings before or after the Plenary.

Previous hosts have found that Plenaries significantly help promote and advance research data policy and activity within their organisation and their country. It is also a great opportunity to showcase your organisation’s data agenda.

Organisations interested in hosting an RDA Plenary should follow the RDA Plenary Guidelines. In particular, hosts are encouraged to be creative and to put their own local spin on the meeting while still recognizing that the primary activity of the meeting is breakout sessions of the RDA Working and Interest Groups conducting their work. Hosts should also strive to keep registration fees modest and seek support from private and government sponsors.
