Preparations are now under way for not one, but two exciting events in the persistent identifier world – our next Outreach Meeting in October, and the first-ever PIDapalooza in November.
ORCID Outreach Meeting – register now!
We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for our next Outreach Meeting will be held at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) offices in Washington, DC on Wednesday, October 5.
The theme of the meeting is Research without Borders and we are working with a great Program Committee to develop an agenda that includes a mix of informal discussions, lightning talks and demos of ORCID integrations, plenaries, and more.
You can find more information about the Outreach Meeting on the event page, including details of nearby hotels and sponsorship opportunities. Program details will be added as we finalize plans, and we also encourage you to follow @ORCID_Org (#ORCID16DC) for regular updates.
As always, registration is free, but spaces are limited so we highly recommend that you reserve your place promptly. We are very grateful to our hosts, AAAS, and to The Leona M and Harry B Helmsley Charitable Trust for their support.
PIDapalooza – save the date!
We’re also thrilled to announce that, together with The California Digital Library, Crossref, and DataCite, we are organizing PIDapalooza, a two-day festival for scholarly research persistent identifiers (PIDs) on November 9-10 in Reykjavik, Iceland.
This community gathering of digital tech experts, publishers, researchers, tool builders, research organizations, and scholarly infrastructure providers will include a mixture of PID demos, workshops, brainstorming, and updates on the state of the art.
More information about the festival lineup will be available on the PIDapalooza website – or follow @PIDapalooza on Twitter.
Registration will open shortly so, if you’re doing something interesting with persistent identifiers – or want to – mark your diary now, and come share your ideas with a crowd of like-minded innovators!
