RDA Virtual Plenary 17 - Notification of Acceptance

26 Feb 2021

Dear Chairs of the Repository Platforms for Research Data IG
The Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has completed its review of session applications for the RDA Virtual Plenary 17 (VP17) and has accepted your application titled Collaborating to Improve Platforms and Share Resources among Open Data Repositories. Please consider this your official notification of acceptance. Congratulations!
TAB has asked the Secretariat to communicate some suggestions to you for improving your session: They suggest providing a better focused agenda and discussion and also explain how the talks impact the Group's mission. Lastly, TAB suggest pre-recording the talks in order to create additional discussion time. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these suggestions, or prefer to discuss these suggestions with TAB, please contact your TAB liaisons, Helen Glaves and Gretchen Greene (copied in this email).
At this time, the Secretariat is scheduling all approved sessions and the draft programme will be published on 12th March. Any requests for changes should be made by 19th March and the final detailed programme with your session time and link to your session page will be published by 23rd March 2021 on the RDA website.
For this meeting, the organising committee has selected a virtual conference platform to integrate all aspects of the meeting (scheduling, meeting delivery, networking, etc.).
Information will be provided to you in the upcoming weeks regarding the platform, specifically related to its functionality and available training and support.
Going forward, please begin planning for your session. As a reminder, there will be some individuals who attend your session who are unfamiliar with your group’s work. We encourage you to keep your session page updated with information about your group, your session and opportunities attendees will have to engage with you and others during the session.
Please contact us at ***@***.***-foundation.org, or your TAB liaison (as indicated above), if you have any questions about your session.
Registration for VP17 will soon be going live, please see here for details together with an outline of the registration fees.
We look forward to your participation at VP17, and on behalf of the RDA TAB and Secretariat, thank you for your ongoing engagement with the RDA.
All the best,
RDA Secretariat
