I was one of the lucky winners of the RDA's European Early Career Researcher travel bursary to attend the fifth plenary meeting.

The RDA plenaries have always been an exciting and learning event and this time it was much special for me, not only because I was awarded the early career program scholarship but also my research was getting perfectly aligned with the various WGs and IGs and the adoptions of the outcomes were shaping the course of my research. This year the 5th Plenary took place on the sunny southwestern coast of California, namely at San Diego. Personally, I think this was the best location for a plenary.
1) Anne Thessen asks a question following Dr. Friend's keynote address, 2) - 3) Sarah Ramdeen and Brandon Costelloe-Kuehn discuss their research at the Early Career/ Fellows Poster Reception.
My group needs to meet. Most of us are here in Troy, with a few in other places. No brainer, right? Those of us in Troy come into my office, get in front of my camera, we run GoToMeeting, and the other few call in from their desks. Why might this not be a good idea?
I’m a PhD student in Information and Computer Science Engineering at the University of Pisa and I work as research fellow at the National Research Council (CNR) in the same city.
