Betreff: The call for abstracts is reaching its deadline
Dear SC/PC members,
The call for abstracts is reaching its deadline. We have already started to receive some submissions and registrations, that is why it is more important than even that we continue making as much as we can to bring our FDO conference to the attention of our networks. This is a reminder for that, in fact.
We have prepared a text that you can use (see below). Alternatively, you may use the flyer and one-pager that are attached to this email.
Thank you in advance.
Dear colleague,
From 26 to 28 October, the 1st International FAIR Digital Objects Conference will take place in Leiden, The Netherlands. An interesting conference that I would like to draw your attention to. Especially as the deadline approaches for the call for abstracts.
For decades now, we have been feeding the Internet with petabytes of information of all kinds. The amount of data is indeed so massive that soon, it will no longer be feasible for us to process it manually. What to do then?
Successful management, exchange and interpretation of knowledge in an ever-growing information tsunami will depend on highly automated methods dealing with combined data. This will require artificial intelligence but also robust and informative ways to store and disseminate data and metadata. Here is where one crucial concept shows up: FAIR Digital Objects (FDOs).
FAIR is about making data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable both for humans and machines. FAIR digital objects have shown key capabilities to simplify and scale the use of data across domains, increase trust in data and ease the handling of high volumes of information.
The developments are there. Now we need widespread consensus.
The 1st International Conference of FAIR Digital Objects will bring together for the first time at this scale key technical, scientific, industry, and science-policy stakeholders with the aim to boost the development and implementation of FDOs worldwide.
Visit to know more about FDOs and join us in the endeavour to transform the Internet into more than just a data space: into a meaningful data space.
Met vriendelijke groet,
Jet de Wit
